Aachen is beautiful this time of the year. The city is surrounded in a magic festive glow and it is not difficult at all to quickly catch the Christmas spirit.
As the Christmas season is upon us, nothing makes the spirit bright as listening to Christmas carols and making home baked cookies.
It is Christmas again. I close my eyes and all that I could see is my mother in the kitchen baking these cookies.
It is Sunday afternoon, a few days away from Christmas and our kitchen is full of flavour again. Smells like vanilla, roasted nuts and butter cookies.
There is something so sweet and nostalgic looking at the Victorian Valentine cards.
