1st year Anniversary- THANK YOU GOD!
Last Sunday was my beanie and mine´s 1st year anniversary. Wow, it feels so fast! But at the same time, I can still remember how we had our fair share of rocky patches in our marriage, especially in the first few months too. Thank God really for His faithfulness and grace to see us through the 1st year of marriage, that brought us through 7 months of Stephan being in Singapore, 5 months of DTS, my relocation of 6 months in Germany (already!). Thinking back, it really has been a year of changes and more changes. So so thankful that God is still helping us keep the flame of love for Him and each other alive.
We would definitely have gone for a weekend getaway to Bali or Thailand if we were in Singapore. But since we were in Germany, we decided to go for a road trip to my favourite city in Germany - Heidelberg! I made a photo album with my summer trip there and boy do I love that place or what? I think its the little things that makes Heidelberg so beautiful. For eg. the tourists there - makes me feel more at home, the english language - written on menu cards in restaurants, yup that´s smth that is not available in restaurants here too, or just the feel of being near to the river. We climbed the castle to the open space on top and got a bird´s eye view of the entire city. Basically spent the day there, enjoying nature, going for Starbucks, going window-linking along the shopping street and ending off with a nice dinner at a Thai Restaurant.
And yah, this trip also marked the first time that I drove all the way from Heidelberg back to Stuttgart, that´s about 150km (I think). It was so cool, I drove as fast as 140km/h at some points, (there´s no speed limit at some parts of the highway). It was really good to practise and get some confidence to drive, though I need to admit that the high speed limit is something that I´m totally not used to. I think I´m much better driving on the right side of the road compared to the left already. Got a mega headache when I came home due to the 1 over hour of driving and pure concentration on the road.
