Here is a little video made from a series of photos I took yesterday evening on our little family walk to the lake. The lake is my favourite place to be in Leipzig. Its peaceful and pretty and I love to be near the water. Lilli is turning into a little water lover too. I hope you like it.

She's no Hollywood lollypop stick figure. She's a quick witted brat with an angelic face, killer hot curves, pales skin and dark lips. Although it was not her first on screen appearance, I first noticed her in the 1998 indie style flick 'Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist' where she stars alongside Micheal Cera as a couple of misplaced suburban teenagers (It's worth watching). Her sharp tongue and soft curves and giant eyes and puckered lips slap you in the face with a cheeky smile. She now stars in a comedy TV series 'Two broke girls' which is in my opinion a little ho hum. But to look at, she beats my drum. Go Kat, for Queen.
Here's her blog: http://katdennings.com/

Wanted to share some of my favorite snaps from my 2 years living in Europe. Hope you like 'em. More to come. Love Apple Tree xxx
Marettimo, Island off Sicily in the Mediterranean Sea..
It has about 300 inhabitants in the winter and 700 in the summer (not including tourists), who mainly live from fishing and traditional hand-craft.
We missed our flight home and decided to hire a car and drive around the Island of Sicily. The views were spectacular. The villages in the windy mountains so beautiful and sleepy.
Baden Wuttenberg, Germany
One of my first days in Germany. In Awe.
I love the colours, metal grey and lavender.
Essence of Italy
Mushroom city, forest in Germany.
A magical forest walk.
