As you may know (since it seems to be one of the only things I can talk about these days), I’m in the midst of wedding planning. It has been surprisingly more fun than stressful, but I owe that mostly to my amazing wedding planner. She worries about the big plans like the food, venue, tables, chairs, etc and I get to worry about the fun little details that personalize the wedding to me…um…I mean…us. Luckily, he understands…he calls it, “your wedding, our marriage.” And that’s why I’m marrying him!
I arrived in Zurich and a whole five days later, we were back in the airport. We were off to Amsterdam! I’m slowly finding out that not only does Europe have more vacation time than the states, they also celebrate every religious holiday by taking more time off of work. Everything is shut down on Good Friday and again on “Easter Monday”. Four days weekends for Easter? I could get used to this.
Our Nuremburg friends organized the trip, and 6 of us stayed in a rented apartment from airbnb. It was a relaxing weekend filled with lots of wandering around, bike riding, whining while bike riding, red light district culture shock, and heineken drinking.
I know you have been waiting anxiously for my return, and it is finally here. In the past 4 months I have moved from one apartment in San Francisco to another, started a new job as a real estate agent, got engaged, started wedding planning, and packed up our new SF apartment to move to Switzerland.
Another Christmas season calls for another cupcake Christmas tree! Last year’s tree went over so well in person and on the interwebs that I had to make it again; this time with some new ornaments and garlands. Surprisingly enough, the tree survived transit to my brother’s house for a delicious potluck, with bacon wrapped turkey and all.
