More Photos from Berlin

Since the holidays and the New Year are for telling the truth, and I am not one to be excluded from such goings on, I must let you in on what may or may not be a well-kept secret. Actually, every day is for telling the truth, but even more so this time of year.

I have my own personal photographer.

Yep. I said it. I cannot claim full credit for the artsy, primo photos on my blog posts. Yes I edit them and incorporate them into the writing. But one thing I am certainly not is a great photographer. My husband, Andrew, is. He has an eye for capturing exactly what I want to convey through words and visual appeal.

So without a doubt, that makes this blog a collaboration. I do love to write, but without his photographs, I am fully aware that my blog posts could get very boring. He is the unsung hero of my every post, and I wanted to give him some special recognition for putting up with my many photo-related commands such as “oooh get a photo of THAT,” and stealing his thunder every time I post a new photo on my Instagram or Facebook feeds before he does.

So, as a small thank you to Andrew, I dedicate this post to him. Here are some more photos from our visit to Berlin…
