Happy Solstice!

These are pictures from a bike ride C and I took in Berlin. We set off from the city heading north. Riding along bike paths, over cobblestones, through fields, and past cows {furry cows}.

We came to this little cafe in the woods, stopped for lunch, and continued on to the lake. Where we found a nice spot with a splendid view. And then, you know, there was some idle chit chat, some small talk, and a marriage proposal! Around this time next year, C will be come Mr. WinterFoliage {hehe I haven't tried that nickname out on him yet, but I'm guessing it'll get a groan}. So if you don't mind, please indulge me as wedding-related crafts and ideas make an appearance in future posts. For starters, I'm already bummed that the Solstice doesn't fall on a weekend next year. Wouldn't it be a great date for a June wedding? We have friends who were engaged in Italy and have a painting from the town where he proposed. Us? We're going to have a photograph of a beetle and a furry cow. Happy Summer*

Congratulations! How exciting! I personally think Mr. Winter Foliage works really well. You could call him Mr. W F for short, it sounds like a wealthy banker from the 20's or something.
The solstice would make for a great wedding date or one great party in general. I can't wait to read about your plans.
