Dreaming of a white Christmas

Hello Everyone and Welcome to the
 2016 Cook Bake Love Blog! 

I know it has been "like forever" since I have posted, but a lot has happened......first we went on a long over due vacation and then my mom passed away. But now that the holidays are over and I am healthy again(yes.....the holidays means this blogger comes down with the flu) I am ready and anxious to get blogging again.

My first tablescapes will be have a Christmas theme....I know the Christmas Season is over, but like I said, there were issues! I hope you still enjoy the first of three Christmas Themed Tablescapes.

Winter Wonderland 



Back like in July.....I found the white tray at Action Markt in Cloppenburg and with that the winter wonderland tablescape idea was born!


Love my Christmas Wooden Letters....Yes sometimes the hubby does good!




My little snowman. I actually had bought him years ago for a thanksgiving tablescape....but I think he fits in well with my winter wonderland.






The wooden stars were found at Action Markt..... Love that store. Action Markt is a chain store from Holland......Cloppenburg(my german home town) is lucky enough to have one. If you are ever in Holland....you just have to check this store out.











Thanks to my niece Mareike and her husband Timo, I have a set of napkin rings that just happen to fit perfectly in this winter wonderland.





Hope you enjoyed my winter wonderland. Please do stop by soon again to catch my second Christmas themed tablescape.....

Early Morning Impressions.....

It seems that the Fitness bug has bitten......it is a cold, dizzy, foggy, rainy morning and yet I got up, got dressed and went on a bike ride! Wow, even with not so great weather it was well worth it. This time I took my camera along.



This Picture was taken in front of our house door... Playing around with some camera techniques.

3 Weddings and....... no funeral

Wow has this been a summer..........3 Weddings!!!!

You read correctly.....we celebrated 3 Weddings in our immediate family this summer.

The first wedding was in June....my mother, at a young age of 84 married her first love Hannes. We were all not able to attend this wedding, but were with those who were in spirit!


The second wedding took place in June in Hamburg-Norderstedt. There my nephew Niki married his beautiful bride Isabella. I had my doubts about a wedding at a beach bar/restaurant, but wow what a great day! The weather played along, my wedding cake made it one piece despite the golf cart ride it had to take and even my great-nephew Jacob was the perfect baby.


The third wedding took place the end of July in Bethen in the Marien Basillica. A special church for our family. I was married in this church, along with the bride´s sister, and both sets of grandparents!



The photo box was a hit at both weddings...




So you see, I have been M.I.A. for some very good reasons....... As summer is coming to an end, I am getting myself psyched for a great fall full of work and lots of adventures........

Spreewald.....it is not just about pickels



Today is not just Memorial Day(a holiday in the USA) but also Pentacost Monday, and so a holiday here in Germany. Usually my days off are spent working in and around the house, but today we decided it was time to venture outside of our backyard and see what the world has to offer.

Along with friends of ours we made our way to the Spreewald for a boat ride. Imagine Venice....but without the buildings and oh so very very green.

The Spreewald is located about 80km southeast of Berlin. It is famous for its gherkins....they produce about 40,000 tonnes of pickels every year.


We had a great day and are already making plans to go again...this time though we are going to rent canoes....




You can rent houses...perfect for a few days of peace and quiet.













along the route, our boat stopped for a snack........






Ah.....pottery this time Spreewald made.....of course I had to buy a small something! And of course it was bakeware.......please check back for a post all about the new bakeware!




trying to find our way back to the boat






Happy Monday Everyone!
