It Turned Out Alright, For Strangers In The Night (So, He Put A Ring On It!)

Hola amigos! With my due date just a few weeks away, I wanted to share with you some images of our wedding, which took place in Bonn, the past 29th of August. It was a very happy and emotional day. Michael and I celebrated our love, commitment and the upcoming arrival of our baby girl surrounded by family and close friends. 

We certainly owe God, tons of friends scattered around the world, extended family AND my former 6/8-size-self a religious and bigger ceremony/ party. 

But for the time being, an early morning appointment at the Rathaus in Duisdorf, Bonn followed by a brunch at Restaurant am Oelberg was all we wanted to take our relationship and future little family to the next level. Many many thanks to my parents and brother, who flew from Spain and France to Bonn and Michael's family, long time friends and colleagues for their unconditional love and support. Special thanks to Cora, Michael's former colleague and friend who acted as the official translator during the civil ceremony and to Bene Beuer, the ridiculously talented photographer who documented our wedding day through her camera lenses. Bene and Michael's paths crossed over a decade ago. Their friendship continued throughout all these years and we're so happy she could play such a major role during our special day by capturing the most intense and beautiful moments of the celebration.

Last but not least, more special thanks to all my long time girlfriends, whose love, thoughts and best wishes were with us despite the physical distance. You were missed big time! 

Hope you enjoy the pics! Thanks for reading!

Baby Moon Scrapbook: Mallorca!

Hola amigos. Thank you so much for all the nice comments and best wishes. They mean the world to us. I'm currently on the week #31 of my pregnancy, and thank God, everything is going well. I'm also slowing down at work, taking one day off per week. The long weekends are doing wonders for me. I'm feeling more connected to my pregnancy, getting stronger for what it's coming.

The first week of August, to celebrate we were finally settled in our new apartment, we headed to beautiful Mallorca for a week to relax and re-charge batteries, after a pretty exhausting moving.

I thought I'd share some pictures of what it was supposed to be our last vacation as a childless couple. History in the making for the Schinnen-de Diego family :)

We rented a villa in Cala Murada, one of the spectacular little beach towns scattered around the East coast of the island. Karen, a Cologne-born lady and our landord for the week, was beyond adorable and made sure we felt home during our stay. Aside of taking a day trip to Palma, to meet one of my mother's best friends, Julita -it was wonderful- we spent the rest of the week relaxing at the beach or in the pool, enjoying wonderful sunsets and having great dinners. Exactly what I was looking forward to. Enjoy the pics!

Can't wait to share with you more highlights of the past weeks/ months, including a gender revelation, the evolution of my pregnancy from an emotional standpoint and a few more surprises.

Thanks so much for reading and my apologies for not being as present as I was before. Miss you tons!

Our Last Beach Day (As We Know Them)


Hi my friends! Hope you guys had a great Summer -although it's not over yet! On this end, I'm happy to tell you that my pregnancy is going as well as expected. We're finally settled in our new appartment -well almost, still no Internet Connection...grrrr!!!- and could squeeze a week-long Baby moon in Mallorca.
The pictures above were taken during our last beach day in Cala Murada, which will always be remembered as our last beach day hanging as a childless couple -God willing!
My third trimestre is now in full swing, hitting next Thursday the week 28 mark.
I'm feeling happy, exhausted and grateful. All in one!
I owe you so many posts, visits and comments. My apologies. I hope to be able to make up for my absence soon.
Much love!
