The "Superpost": A year in pictures...


Wow...so much to look back on after one year. Luckily I take an insane amount of photos and I can relive lots of the memories via visual aid. :) Here are some highlights:

September: moving in to this beautiful neighborhood, enjoying the warm September weather at Mauerpark, visiting friends and having friends visit, walking to cafés, having a beer or cake...
October: biking around the city, cooking lots, going to the markets, doing work at the archive, giving a talk at Bochum and at the FU, sharing pumpkin-carving traditions with Americans and Germans...
November: the days start getting darker...library time, cooking time, getting to know new friends, going to the theater...
December: sister time! Christmas markets, Glühwein, baking gingerbread, more Christmas markets and more Glühwein, jogging with Elisabeth, December rain (blgh), Christmasy window displays, Jessica's New Year's visit, German breakfasts, concerts, bakeries, restaurants...
and in December Michael and I also went to Switzerland...which was too cute but also too expensive...

...and we traveled to Dresden with Elisabeth...for the greatest Christmas market of them all...
so yeah, I guess December was a good month. :)

January: going to more plays, the first dusting of snow, cooking with new root vegetables from the market...
Feburary: a little more light snow, seeing movies at the Berlinale Film Fest, seeing the Berlin basketball team play, seeing fairy tales, eating Butterbretzel...
March: the weather started to warm up, some flowers coming up, Michael's birthday, jogging in Tempelhof, friends' visits...
April: Berlin half marathon, the leaves came out of nowhere, film archive visit, Michael's team winning trivia (some 300 EUR), wine tasting, eating out on the balcony, grilling at Tempelhof, Spargel season, warmer and lighter evenings...
and in April my mom and mormor also came to visit and we traveled in the Rhine region, drinking lots of good Riesling, hiking, admiring the castles by boat, with visits to Mainz and Frankfurt...
May was busy...starting with the First of May party in Kreuzberg, then a 10K run, a quick visit to Hamburg, the German swimming championships, Michael's sister and cousin coming to visit...
and June got even busier...swimming at Prinzenbad, Berlin triathlon, bachelorette and bachelor parties for friends, 48 Stunden Neukölln...

and my parents' visit: time in Berlin with travels to Rügen, Hamburg, Lübeck, Amrum and back.

July:  Fourth of July picnic at Tempelhof, swimming at Müggelsee, Jessica's visit and other Michigan friends coming for the summer, and the awesome hike in the Sächsische Schweiz

and August...which was recent so I won't repost pictures. :) But it's been hard to say goodbye to all the new friends we made this year, and all the places that have become part of our day-to-day.
Auf Wiedersehen!
