Munich. Oktoberfest 2013
Midway through the tent's brass band rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody," --singing along at the top of our lungs, swaying back and forth with arms locked together--I could feel happiness that reached deep into my bones.
"This," I thought, "is a happiness I will always remember. This is a moment that will change everything."
And it did. It truly did.
So stumbling upon this photo last week on Facebook brought it all back.
But most of all, it immediately made me think of this post from the ever-so-enlightening Laura at Little Things and Curiosities...
