Valentine's Weekend

The Mr. and I had a great Valentine's weekend. On Friday Mr. surprised me with beautiful flowers and a fabulous bottle of wine, Bordeaux, my favorite. Together we cooked dinner and then enjoyed fun conversation. An excellent couple night.

Then on Saturday we went to Tübingen to visit a PostSecret auf Deutsch exhibit in the local museum. The exhibit was part of a larger one that brought together different collections - figures from Lords of the Rings, feathers, Elvis stuff - and it was inspiring to see what others collect. There was also a person who collected everything turtle who was much worse off than Little One.

We also took some time to wander through the little village, which has numerous very old, well-kept houses; a sprawling castle upon a large hill; and lovely people. One person was so kind that she took a break in her weekend errands to walk us through the twisting streets to the museum.*

Next to the castle is one very happy couple.

*That will be paid forward more times that imaginable!
