We sure did! This is partly, because we made the best decision ever to get groceries on Friday.
In Baltimore, groceries were my sole responsibility and since I would always pass by a grocery store on my way home from school, I could just pick up whatever we needed every other day or so.
Here in Berlin, Nick and I go to the store together. It's a 15 min walk to get there and we do a big grocery trip every other week and a small trip on the weekends in between. We cook a lot here, so our big trip usually involves filling up every single bag and backpack we own and our arms hurting on the way home. I truly enjoy this time we get to spend together, but I'm not gonna lie, the carrying-everything-home-part is annoying.
It's particularly pleasant to deal with a gazillion pounds of stuff, if the stores are packed - and each Saturday, the number of people shopping is just insane.

You see the one in the black coat? That would be me.
Instead, we had a relaxing grocery experience. It was heavenly. Except the sidewalks weren't nicely shoveled, but one can't have everything.

The best part of this morning: it was 36F outside! Amazing!
I did 7 miles that took me by some of the landmarks here in the city. I ran past the zoo, through Tiergarten Park, past the Brandenburg gate, and Potsdamer Platz. It's wonderful that we have such incredible, historic places right at our door step and it really keeps the runs much more interesting.
What are you up to today?
Do you have any fun plans for this weekend?
