Man, time flies, does it not?  I was just thinking it’s already been two months since Holly and I went to Poland, but it feels like only yesterday!  In any case, welcome to Poland!  First and foremost, you’re probably wondering how to pronounce Wrocław, and the funny L looking letter should be your first clue that your first attempt was probably all wrong. LOL It’s pronounced vrowt·swaaf (sometimes it sounds like it ends with a v – clear here if you’d like to hear it); simple, right? 🙂

Wroclaw is a city in the south of Poland, and it is where Holly and I went to see our friend Nico get married. For those of you who have been following along with Picture of the Week a REALLY long time, you may recall that Nico came and spent a few weeks with us back in 2014 – now almost 8 years ago!  Again, talk about time flying!  I’ll talk more about the wedding next week, but suffice it to say for now that it was AMAZING.

The old town part of Wroclaw is just absolutely gorgeous, as you’ll see in the pictures this week.  Next week I’ll share color images so you can see just what a beautiful place it is – but this week what I wanted you to see are all the gorgeous lines and textures of the old architecture the city has to offer.  It seemed like around every corner was another fairytale scene, and I just have to share this.  One morning I got up and went for a walk with my camera, just to see what I could see.  It had snowed the night before just a little bit, which added a little extra magic to the city.  As I was wandering around, it occurred to me that, for the first time in a long time, I had neither worry nor stress, and I was truly just living in that moment.  It was SUCH a nice reset.

More next week!
