Melissa was the perfect roommate in college. She was the one that would open my door, sit on my bed and convince me I was studying far too much for a Tuesday (Let’s binge watch Sex in the City instead). She was always positive, adventurous and fun. It’s hard to believe it’s been over 10 years since we’ve met. The time continues to pass but our friendship hasn’t changed. We both travel all over the world and when time permits we run into each other about once a year or two.
This summer she’s traveling through Europe and I’m so happy she spent a week with me in Germany! There’s no one else I’d rather eat tiramisu with in pjs as we binge watch Netflix . #somethingsneverchange
When I picked her up from the Airport we stopped in Mainz for breakfast. We happened to stumble upon an amazing farmers market. So we picked up fresh fruits and vegetables after brunch.
I learned a lot from her this trip:
1. I only own one whisk… which is definitely not enough for a chef preparing Easter dinner.
2. You can shred chicken with a kitchen aid #lifechanging moment for me.
3. I’m far more technologically incompetent than I thought I was. When Dan left, everything stopped working Haha
4. Melissa makes the best chocolate cake I have ever tasted. Who knew you can make a cake with beer!?!
5. Great friendships will grow as time passes. I am so thankful we got to spend this time together –> and I’m sorry I didn’t warn you about the crazy allergy season in Germany!
While she was here we went shopping in Trier because it’s one of my favorite cities. Trier is the oldest city in Germany. We also took a trip to Lambrecht, Germany to see where her heritage came from! It was a quiet little town, perfect for park bench sitting and gelato eating of course. At the end of the week we enjoyed Easter dinner with our closest friends.
Friendship really does heal the heart❤️
