Strawberry fields forever 🍓😍🍓 Strawberry picking for the first time just 5 minutes down the road! Our friends are here (!!!!) and we’re taking them to some of our favorite spots in Europe: heidelberg, the Black Forest, Strasbourg, Colmar, through Austria and then throughout Germany 🇩🇪 🇦🇹 I am in heaven! P.s it’s only 1.50 for each basket and we ate some along the way 👌🏻 #helyeahheidelberg #helenelovesgermany #teamhelene

“Helene, I think you’re supposed to stand in front of the flowers... not in them.” -Michael
It’s been a while so I thought I’d reintroduce myself and tell you something you might not know about me:
- I’m from Dallas, TX and moved to Heidelberg, Germany in September 2016 with my husband and two dogs for fun! No visa, just two dogs and two suitcases each. 👜🐶
- I never ever thought I’d be a full time blogger. From age 14-18 I thought for sure I’d be on broadway. But sadly I’m not that talented 😂
- I only started really liking red wine until this year. I don’t know why... it just sort of clicked. 🍷
- I looooove spending time by myself. I crave it. And my favorite things to do when alone are to write and watch Harry Potter or Chick flicks ⚡️🐣
- I’ve asked around and y’all have told me that you’d like a hashtag to grow your community, so I’m starting #teamhelene so I can check out your posts too. A couple years ago I had #photosinbetween but since now it’s almost to 1 million hashtags this one might be a bit better 🎉
Now... tell me about you!

3 things y’all! 1. I’m on my first trip since tearing my ACL! I’m in Kraków, Poland and speaking at @trablinonline conference.
2. Any restaurant recs? Michael and I are only here for 24 hours!
3. I’m doing a FREE Instagram story challenge and the link to sign up is in stories or in my bio! Hurry because it starts Monday.

Y’all. 🚨STOP EVERYTHING. 🚨The best FROZEN margaritas in Europe have been discovered. In Heidelberg no less. And they are made with real fruit and everything. This Texan is pleasantly surprised and will be back here every few days. Now... we just need some good chips and queso. #helyeahheidelberg #helenelovesgermany

Question: what wine pairs best with allergy medication? 🌸🍷😂 I love spring and all but my eyes are itchy, red, bloodshot and now I remember why this time of year is difficult #helyeahheidelberg #helenelovesgermany

I’d spring clean... BUD I’m busy. 🌸🌸🌸🌸
On the blog today I’ve got what I’ve been binge watching on Netflix, podcasts, and what I’m reading. Lots of cult stuff. What are you watching or reading? I need a book that’s both Liane Moriarty plus Gone Girl 🧐Heleneinbetween.com or link in stories #helenelovesgermany

Signs of Spring in Heidelberg (finally). People are still wearing coats like it could snow any minute. Meanwhile Michael is in shorts and people are staring. It’s fine. We are the weird ones one way or another. #helyeahheidelberg #helenelovesgermany

Sometimes Instagram feels overwhelmingly focused on the good. Let’s talk about the bad 👹Things I’m really bad at - concentrating, not NOT watching the bachelor, balance, compulsive stat checker, decorating (legit the worst), getting mad over tiny minuscule things... What are you bad at??

Spinning in the rain 💦 I feel like someone turned the faucet on Heidelberg and left it on a slow drip. It’s not POURING just trickling. It’s been like this for the past 887 day (in reality it’s since November). What’s the weather where you are right now? #helenelovesgermany

First big trip planned for 2018! Heading to...
The Swiss and French Alps for my birthday! Going to be (FINALLY) seeing Matterhorn - a place I’ve dreamed about seeing, Chamonix, Lusanne, Interlaken, and more. Cannot wait to fall on my face in some snow. Best part? Pups are coming along too! Where are you headed next? #heleneloveseurope #helenelovesgermany

Having a very Merry Christmas ❄️⛄️
Hoping you’re having a wonderful one y’all!

I’ve been to A LOT of Christmas markets this year. But my favorite remains in my new home Heidelberg, Germany 🎄👋🏻 Celebrating Christmas Eve by drinking my weight in glüwein, sausage, and singing loud for all to hear. I don’t know if y’all can tell... but I really love Christmas. #helyeahheidelberg #helenefortheholidays #helenelovesgermany

Screen saver 🙌🏻😍❄️ We drove to Baden Baden to take in the lovely christmas market there. Michael decided to drive up the mountain in the Black Forest just to see if it had snowed.... IT HAD. As we kept climbing the icy mountain road the sun crept in changing the pure white snow to a pinky-orange color. We were so in awe we pulled the car over and watched the sunset.
Sometimes I forget just how incredible germany is. I have traveled a lot this year but I think Germany just might be my favorite place. #helenelovesgermany

I’ve been to a Christmas market every single day since they opened in Heidelberg and I’m not sorry about it 🎄my mom arrived just in time for snow! Swipe for more pics ➡️ #helyeahheidelberg #helenelovesgermany

I’m in love, I’m in love and I don’t care who knows it 🎄❤️🎄Christmas in Heidelberg is here and I’ve basically morphed into a 5 year old kid. ALSO, my Mom comes tomorrow!
In case you don’t know... I moved to Germany from Texas just one year ago to travel Europe. I had never been to Germany before and never to a Christmas market. Now that I’m here I can’t get enough!! Tell me where you’re from ⬇️ #helenelovesgermany #helyeahheidelberg

Literally walking in a winter wonderland ❄️🙌🏻😍 It started snowing in Heidelberg and didn’t stop! We went up to the highest point in town and it felt like I was walking in a movie. It’s just lovely #helyeahheidelberg #helenelovesgermany

Headed to Christmas town (aka Mosbach) for a little spiced cider and absolutely zero shopping.
I’m an online shopper.
What about you?!
P.S. I went nuts and put my Lightroom presets on major sale- 50% off with code “DEAL”. I’ve also rounded up the best deals for bloggers and influencers on my blog.
This pic is edited with “Sweater Weather” from the WARM pack! I never do sales so you better hurry! Heleneinbetween.com/presets or link in bio! #helenelovesgermany #helenefortheholidays

Fall-la-la-la🍁🌲 it stopped raining in Germany today!! (I swear it’s been raining for 21 days straight!) so Michael and I ran outside to catch some rays. And by rays I mean it wasn’t 45 degrees outside. 😎 Tomorrow is a big day: we are celebrating 13 years of dating (😮) and I’m starting my giveaways! You won’t wanna miss it!

Oh Heidelberg, you pretty little thing. One of the most common questions I get: why in the world did you pick Germany? It’s true. It’s a little strange to pick up and move to a place you’ve never been to just for “fun.” On the Blog today I explain exactly how and why we chose Germany and then heidelberg. Showing you our best spreadsheets and all. If you ever want to move, this might help you! 👉🏻heleneinbetween.com👈🏻 or link in bio! #helenelovesgermany #helyeahheidelberg
