Frustration & Fun= Frankfurt for Fourth Wedding Anniversary

With my partner in crime and love of my life!

With my partner in crime and love of my life!

The Hubby and I just celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary, and we decided to do a little overnight getaway in Frankfurt, Germany, which is about an hour and a half from us. We’d only been there to catch a flight from the airport, so we thought seeing the city would be fun.

Little did we know how CRAZY it would be to drive around the city limits! There were so many one way streets, and God help you if you just missed a turn. That happened a couple of times, and due to construction, we ended up driving way back around the city to get back where we belonged.

I could feel my hubby’s rising fury and the number of muttered expletives grew by each minute. It was looking like we weren’t going to be able to park right by our hotel, so I gently suggested we choose a parking lot down the street. Wearily, he obliged!

After checking in the Manhattan Hotel (yep, a place in Germany named after New York!) and having a nap to reset ourselves, we ventured out to dinner. Our original restaurant choice ended up being closed down (boo!) but hey, after many years together, we’ve learned to improvise. A sushi place caught our eye, and though I was a bit overdressed, I didn’t care! Hubby took these great pics of me in the hotel’s lobby before we went out. I wore a favorite look of his, this Forever21 Plus peplum dress.

Hubby loves the hourglass look! Forever21 Plus dress, Graceland flats.

This rhinestone bracelet is one I picked up for $6 at a little shop in Saugatuck, Michigan! I love finds like this!

We spent the next day at Zoo Frankfurt , which was a lot larger than we’d anticipated! So many types of animals to see! From the big cats to the smallest lizards and everything in between, we ooooed and ahhhed over the wildlife. Definitely worth the visit!!

This "bear" was so nice to pose with me!

All in all, we had a great time. Frankfurt has a lot to offer visitors, and the subway system is definitely the way to get around! Very easy to navigate your way.

The lesson learned, though – next time, we take a train there!

I love that he can be silly with me!

Most importantly, I am very blessed to be married to my hubby. He is incredibly supportive, giving, funny, witty, has great integrity, and makes me feel amazing! I love him with all my heart! Awwwww.

Enough gushing for now! Until next time – love, laughter, and shoes!
