Learning to Live in Deutschland...

After an eventful two weeks of traveling in Europe, with my dad lugging all 100 pounds of my luggage and enjoying my first cruise ever, I am finally (almost settled) in my new home! Wald-Michelbach, Germany will be my home base, at least for the next year. My parents left this morning and the good-bye was far from dry-eyed. This whole living in Germany thing feels very real now, which is indescribably nerve-racking and exciting. The town looks like a quintessential German town, red roofs and cute little bakeries and shops. I really have not done much yet besides move into my apartment, so I will just show you guys two of my favorite parts of my new home: my polaroid wall and where i store my clothes.

the polaroid wall: since i am living alone, i knew i wanted to display a lot of pictures and make my walls look festive. i quickly filled my bulletin board and my photo hanger, before i even remembered to get out all my polaroid pictures. so, i decided to give them their own location, just between the two skylights in my bedroom. it turned out surprisingly well and i designed it so i can add more pictures as i take them!

clothing storage: since my apartment came furnished and painted, i was worried about not being able to make it cute or personalized to me. however, i haven't found that to be a problem (except the kitchen cabinets that i desperately need to repaint!). but this cute clothing rack was perfect for my clothes, and my mom is sending me cute hangers to make it even better. i just love the exposed closet and simplicity of this. it did make me realize that i might have taken the whole "wear darker colors in europe" thing a little too seriously since there are fairly any colors in my closet, but i love that i can hang things on the side (purses, scarves, belts...) and it just looks decorative!

That is all I have to share now...but I'm certain there will be more as my adventures continue! xoxo
