I regret that I never took a picture of the cow decorated for the holidays.
I had to pull this photo from Google maps.
When we visited our apartment in Bonn for the first time, we laughed because a few houses down is a statue of a bull. I can't imagine this one dressing up in a pink feather boa for Valentine's day. But it did receive a hug & kiss from Brandtley a few days ago. :)
The second theme we noticed when we walked inside. The living room is painted a dark, warm red. The first house we purchased, in Houston, had a red living room, and our most recent house in Atlanta had a red dining room. Most German home interiors seem to be painted white or a light color, so this is unusual. Our landlord also made the comment that it is dark and expressed dislike for it, remarking that he could refer us a painter if we wanted to repaint. However, given our history, I find it cozy and comforting for now.
