A trip down Memory Lane..

Last week I travelled to Germany for my BFF's wedding! Eek! I was so excited when she told me she was engaged (two weeks prior to the wedding!) and got the cheapest flight I could find to attend her Last Minute wedding in the depths of Bavaria.

I stayed at my parents flat in Germany and used the days before my BFF's big day to dwell in some old memories.

I found my old friendship book from back in elementary school. It was somewhat of a pre-facebook social must have when I was a kid. Every kid had one in the 90s. It's basically a book that you'd leave poems, notes, well wishes and drawings in for your friends to remember you by for when they turn old and/or nostalgic.

I took some pictures of a few entries in mine and translated them for you:

 "Life is like a stage play. What matters isn't the length but the skilled act. 
I wish you a happy, interesting and adventurous life - Martina G." 

"To be yourself, is more important than to be someone
Wishing you Luck, Health, Adventure, Warmth, Comfort and a pitch on the bright side of life - with love, your brother M."

We are all angels with only one wing. 
We have to embrace each other in order to fly. 
I wish you all the best and people who will always fly with you.
 Your German teacher, Theo W."

I don't want to sound soppy but it was really touching to read all those kind words. So, I've decided that when I have kids one day I'll make them start a friendship book too.

When you see the time and effort put into an entry like that, you know it's just not comparable to scrolling through your old Facebook wall. A website simply can't compete with that kind of thoughtful gesture.

Anyway, now that I'm back in the UK I've got some blog posts coming up you'll hopefully enjoy reading as much as I'll have fun writing them. Oh and I am planning a Give Away in time for Christmas! More info to follow....

Have a great week my lovelies!
