^^ what bliss looks like ^^
my last post on lucerne was super picture heavy and this one is really just an ode to lucerne's farmer's market. I am a sucker for a quaint, well-rounded farmer's market and lucerne's is (by far) the most quaint and well-rounded. they have vendors selling everything from garden herbs to fresh cheese to alp horns. not to mention that the vendors had every fruit and vegetable you could imagine in stock. of course, we were there at the most perfect time of year, so that was to be expected, really. I could have done some serious damage here if it hadn't been that we were catching a train directly after this and we didn't want to withdraw anymore swiss francs. we picked up strawberries, some fresh bread, and a few cupcakes for the train ride over to italy, but the cupcakes didn't make it that far. they were gone before we even left the market square. typical. and even though they were overloaded with frosting, they were vegan so we didn't even feel the slightest bit guilty eating them for breakfast. not that that would have stopped us. it really was the happiest place I've ever been and all in all, I'm pretty sure my life peaked standing in line for those strawberries so I can die peacefully now.
happy monday everyone! mitch passed his exit exam last wednesday, so I've been seeing a lot more of him and it has been wonderful to have my partner in crime back. even if it has been a bit of an adjustment. it's like, you mean I can't just sit quietly by myself in bed and stalk other bloggers all morning?! I hope you all have a great day and I still have two more posts from our travels to write, so stay in touch for those!
