Autumn Colors in Germany

I still can not believe that I live here! Every time we drive down the road, or visit a little village or just have a quintessential German experience, I have to pinch myself and remember that I actually live in this beautiful place. As a gal from San Diego, being able to experience the seasons on the East Coast of the U.S. was mind-blowing at times. But being here in Germany and experiencing the change from Summer to Autumnย (andย this is my favorite time of year) is truly magical.

This morningย we visited the weekly Farmers Market in Kaiserslautern and had a wonderful time. We bought some cheese, bread, fruit, eggs, fresh flowers and had a couple tasty snacks. Then we took a drive to a neighboring village called Idar-Oberstein to photograph the Autumn colors along the way. We took our time, so everything was closed by the time we got there. But it’s so close that we’ll be able to go back and really explore the town.

I’ve been participating in OcTieBer, an annual challenge on Facebook with a bunch of friends where we wear some sort of neckwear everyday. Today I went all out in my Autumn colors and country style.
