The blessings continue to flow here in Scotland as I have made some wonderful friends along my journey. It isn’t always about what you are seeing, it is about whom comes into your life and leaves a happy mark on your heart that creates the best experiences; may the memories and friendships continue to bloom.
I was so very blessed to get to spend a whole day touring the childhood and adulthood home (for a while) of Hugh Miller, geologist, reformer, stone mason and Scots. Truly an amazing experience!! I used my National Trust for Scotland pass to tour it, which is awesome.
A Small, quaint town in the heart of the Black Forrest, Thomas and I stopped at the Guesthause Hirch for a wonderful german meal, the church bells rang, and the service was nice, the food superb. A town that one can easily relax in and fully enjoy!!! A place to get a breath of fresh air and enjoy the day. It is also easily accessible, not far from Baden Baden
I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.

A twist on a classic of Beer and Pizza night, Thomas and I enjoyed an evening out at Zum Hoepfner Pub in Ittersbach with Pilsners and Flammkuchen–Lecker!!! Lots of laughter and good times, listening to the tunes playing, chatter of fellow pub patrons, and enjoying a fun evening out.
A bit of free time between schedules left an open afternoon for me today, so i toured around on a whim, with great joy. I went walking and enjoyed whatever I happened to come across, and naturally enjoyed some sweet treats and coffee while out and about.

Meeting new and fun people is always nice–and what better place than to meet them in my German courses.
Tatenda is from Zimbabwe and desired to adventure more here in Germany so we headed off together, enjoying lunch first, and then to the Monastary Ruins in Frauenalb for a wonderful and fun afternoon in the snow.

Making a good impression …with beautiful, original art.
As seen in a January post I wrote, I dream of selling an art piece of my very own, an adventure in eBay sales for sure!!!
The price is currently at $700–but this is negotiable for sure, so make me an offer!!
Van Gogh inspired, original impressionistic oil painting of dreams and blooms during a raging storm. Original, signed 16×20 inch framed on stretched canvas, ready to hang. Oil painting, vivid brush strokes.
