HELLO!!! I didn’t plan to take an online vacation, but I promise it’s for really wonderful reasons – that I’m excited to share here soon! It came at the perfect time, though – August in Croatia is when everyone is in holiday mode and heads to the coast. I hope you all have been enjoying the end of summertime! We have been traveling the past two weeks, the majority of it spent in Eastern Croatia. It’s a fascinating part of the country that we’ve been wanting to see — and we finally made it out there to celebrate my Love’s birthday.
These photos are from the city of Osijek, near Croatia’s border with Hungary and Serbia. We expected it to look and feel much more Eastern, but it actually reminded us of a neighborhood in Zagreb… except that there’s still bullet holes in some of the buildings from the 1990’s war, which you don’t see in Zagreb!

Grace … soooo thrilled to be taking this photo! I hope you enjoy these last days of August!
