Today is the day I've been looking forward to for months. After weeks of work and family filled craziness, we are heading off on our long anticipated family vacation to Germany.  Since I've known Glenn he has been pining away for a snow filled Christmas.  The few flakes that may have fallen during previous years did not satisfy him.  Last year's Christmas in Slovenia hinted at the promised snow but instead the storm hit a week after we had returned to Albania.  With  Bavaria already buried in white flakes,  Christmas 2012 WILL be our snow filled year. 

So here's to a week of snow, family fun, Santa, gluhwein, and Christmas markets.  Much to Sidney's delight we'll take a plane and a train to get there and a much talked about and anticipted sleigh ride in his future.  Our only other plans are to do nothing (if that can be considered a plan) but relax and reconnect as a family.  After the past year we've earned this time.  At the same time we will also reflect on how fortunate we are that we are together as a family. 

Did I mention that I can't wait?

Merry Christmas!

  1. Where in Germany will you be going? I have a good friend living in Munich (she's German). I love Bavaria, so beautiful. Enjoy!
