    • Thank you Susie! You were amazingly quick in your response!! I hope that you will be able to visit the alps some day! They they beautiful and majestic! I grew up near the Swiss alps and loved going there occasionally as a kid. Last year my husband and I spent two week traveling around the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains on the French side. So worth a trip! I’ll check my photos and see if I can do a Pyrenees post! 😃 Have a wonderful week! 🏔

  2. I LOVEE your post, especially the pictures! So pretty! Thank you for those kind words, they make my heart real warm:-)
    Pilates and Yoga are two of my favorite ways to workout! All the best to you for starting!
    That quote is genius, I´ll keep that in mind, although I tell the truth 99% of the time anyway, because I´m the worst liar and it just comes out, without me stopping it, whatever it is…..
    Spring is a beautiful season, I love it too!
    Again, amazing post! XO

    • You are welcome! I did Pilates for several years at a studio. They had group reformer classes. I loved it! Now I have a less expensive reformer at home, but really need to just do it!!
      Glad you liked the post! I am looking forward to more of your posts and will use them to motivate myself to take better care of my body!
      Have a great week, Sabine 😀

      • That´s amazing! I love Pilates. But the great thing about most pilates moves is that you can do then anytime and anywhere… The only thing you need to do is indeed to just go for it.
        Wow, that is so amazing to hear. I´m so glad I can motivate you. I´ll definitely write more fitness stuff then;-)
        Have a great evening! XO Little Sunshine
