I took these photos at the Hohenloher Freiland Museum in Wackershofen.  This living museum is one of my favorite places (in the world) to visit (I could live there).  They have recreated a village of old historic homes and work places so you can see what day-to-day life would have been like during different periods of Germany’s history.

I love imagining what life may have been like for my ancestors.  The more I learn, the more I love them and look forward to meeting them someday.
