August was a busy month. Two weeks of travel out of the country, the beginning of the school year for our daughter, a new preschool for our son and a birthday for me. We traveled to London to visit my family, then took the Eurostar (a great way to travel!) across to Germany. We hung out in Koln (Cologne) for a couple of days before moving onto other cities. Here is a photo of love padlocks on the Hohenzollern Bridge in Koln. The love padlocks started appearing in European cities in the early 2000s. Typically, a couple’s name is engraved on it.
And just before we left for our vacation, I got some of these lovely sterling silver Om charms, now available in my shop!
