Finally 30!

I needed some time to write this blogpost. My birthday has already been one week ago, but I was sick all week. The first week of being 30 started well hu? But I'm feeling better now and wanted to update my blog with some new pictures.

My birthday had the theme "Doomsday!". Because of me becoming 30... ehem and because of the Bundestag elections, which was indeed a nightmare. But becoming 30 not so much. It was actually quite great becoming 30 you know? I'm very thankful for all these great people that came to celebrate with me.

Just in the night to my birthday I got my present from my boyfriend. So amazing, an e piano! I was talking about it quite often that I wanted to play piano again but I had no piano anymore. So he got me this beauty! I'm so happy and already started practising.

I was quite stressed out the first two weeks before that. I guess that why I got sick after the my birthday. And that day was starting also a little stressful with all the preparations. I invited my family first for a family happy hour with cake, coffee and prosecco. Many havn't seen our apartment yet so I could show them around for a bit. We had soo much cake...

Later my friends and some dear Coworkers joined the round. My best friends prepared a surprise in my room for me with many pictures of me from childhood to today. It was such a lovely surprise I still can't take the pictures down. I also god an amazing cherry blossom cake! It was so cute! And vegan!

Some of us also dressed up for the occasion of doomsday. For example I was Rachael from Blade Runner.

Thank you for all the wonderful presents! They made me all very happy and where so thoughful and amazing. Thank you for coming and thinking of me.

A wedding in London

My good friend Sarah, I met her in Tokyo at a concert. "What's your name?" "Sarah." "Mine too!!" After my year in Japan and when she was back in London, we visited each other a few times and she introduced Jonathan to me, her boyfriend. They have been together for 7 years and now tied a knot. They invited me to the wedding and I kind of intrusively asked if I can bring my boyfriend. I could. (Thank you!)

I guessed the wedding would be some kind of elegant with a hint of historical, as far as I know Sarah. In the end it was SUPER elegant und SUPER historical and I'm thinking back to it for the whole week now. I was also very happy with my quite british outfit which I needed months to pick out.

The wedding took place at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. It started with a lovely ceremony (everyone was crying... I know I was) were we weren't allowed to take pictures so we could concentrate on the couple. I really liked that idea. Also their photographer could take better pictures of our faces during the ceremony without us having the phone infront of our faces all the time. I snatched some photos before the ceremony though.

After that we went outside to take a group picture. I guess there were around 70 people (?). And after that we had a reception outside with canapés and drinks. We had time to take a look around while the newly wed couple did photos with the photographer. Such a great HISTORICAL place! It was so Sarah.

After the reception everyone went inside into the diningroom. It was so ELEGANT. We had a delicious menu and very good chats with our seetingneighbours. I also met my old friends from Japan again, Rei and Polina, who where bridesmaids. I was so happy! The wedding cake had quite a geeky top, a Gundam figurine. So funny!

There was a great party afterwards with a great band and lovely weddingdance of the couple. A lot of photos where taken but I only have my mobile photos just yet. I hope we will be able to see the photos of the photographer. I'm really curious. I also took some photos with my Minolta but there has the film to be developed obviously.

 It was really such a beautiful day. I'm happy that me and bea were able to be there with Sarah and Jon and all the other lovely people. We wish you all the best!
