Spring Sunday

Sunday was the first real spring day this year. In fact it was so warm, that we could wear our midseason jackets and had to dress down once we came out.

We took a walk down to Hermannplatz to go to the Photobooth - something we have done a bit more frequently since Fleur joined our lives. We ended up having to get two strips as she hardly made it on to the first one. In between we went to Jacobi - one of my new favourite coffee spots - and had sunday croissants. Lots of people were outside enjoying the sun and the first warmth.

In the afternoon we were at the playground and took a walk around Körner Park so Fleur cold use her newly acquired walking skills outside.

Most of February was really sunny and icy cold and right now, it looks like march is continuing in the same trail. Unlike large parts of Europe we have not had any real snow here. But even though I can go out without getting my feet wet, the icy weather has still made inside my favourite place to be.

I have seen people sitting outside in the sun, trying to catch every glimpse of light, but I always gets chilled by the thought of it. Luckily we have the sun right at home throughout the day, so there is no real need to go out except for a bit of fresh air and the occasional coffee.

Our trip to Vienna ended with a blue sky and a cup of coffee.

Mellie's Home no. 3

At Mellie's home there is always so many interesting things, so many details to notice, and so many nice pictures to take. Maybe you remember her other homes? The one in Budapest or the one in Berlin? If you take a closer look, you might be able recognise some of the stuff. She had so many thing in various places, but now finally everything she owns is gathered in one.

Her apartment in Vienna had  - like the one in Budapest - a beautiful herringbone floor. This one with curves up and down. The door between bedroom and living room was the highpoint, the middle of the living room the lowest. It had tall doors and high ceiling and was bright and hyggelig.

She still holds on to my grandparents old London couch, so there is a bit of nostalgia for me when I visit. Being at Mellie's feels almost like being at home.
