I am sure you are wondering, um… she said she was going to share things from her Germany trip? Yeah well there were octopus there. There was only one and it wasn’t real, but it was super funny how we found him. We hijacked a reserved table at Oktoberfest after our reservation ended. We claimed the table ours and everybody wanted to sit with us, because we only had 4 and the table fit 10! One very nice group of four people, 1 German and 3 Americans from Arizona asked to sit with us. They seemed nice and the one woman was so grateful and happy we would share she offered a gift. Apparently, she imports and resales jewelery and she gave me this crazy Swarovski crystal octopus ring. I have no idea when I might wear it again, but the thing is ridiculously awesome. Which brings us back to this multicolored octopus on today’s card. The octopus is a little wrapped shape as the ring, so I just drew a normal one all sparkly and such. Hope you are enjoying my silly memories and random content right now.

Whoaaa! I am finally getting caught up with life. There is so much going since I have returned vacation. Not only is there a lot going on at work, but now a lot going on with life too…
I got engaged while on vacation in Lake Como, Italy! Our whole vacation we spent most of our time in lovely Bavaria aka southern Germany. Big rolling grassy hills, very tasty beer, even tastier food and great friends. We took a little break from the festivities in Bavaria and ventured to Austria, Switzerland and Italy. There is lots to tell about the trip and I am going to share some of it through Wandering Poste. So sit back, check back regularly and enjoy my trip via postcards!
I wanted to start with something that I couldn’t stop talking about leading up to the trip and the whole time while in Germany… PRETZELS! I am absolutely obsessed with the soft, warm, and chewy pretzels the size of your head. I drew them much smaller, but note these aren’t your American hard baked pretzels in a bag. I just drew them small to show how many I ate and how much I love them. I probably didn’t eat as many as I have drawn here, but damn near close. Enjoy and I encourage you to get yourself one of these salty tasty goodies!
