how lucky are we

Saturday, October 24


This is us last Christmas 2008 on top of the Eiffel Tower. {Yes, I was blonde...but NEVER AGAIN} We were so lucky to be able to spend Christmas in Europe with Tys's wonderful family. It was the experience of a lifetime. Things I never thought I'd be able to say, but actually CAN: We've...
-Skiied the Alps. (Now that wouldn't sound so impressive if you had actually SEEN us. But still. It counts for something}
-Gone to Christmas Mass in the Notre Dame {interesting but beautiful}
-Kissed my love on top of the Eiffel Tower
-Seen the real life Moulin Rouge
-Bartered with French vendors.....gracious!
-Been serenaded by an accordionist and French singer over a delightful feast. 
-Toured the Neuschwanstein Castle. Absolutely stunning.
-Eaten the BEST steak I've ever had in a small German pub/restaurant.
-Discovered Apple Schula... oh how I crave that stuff
-Had the Mona Lisa's eyes follow me around the room...the rumors are true people. It actually happens
-Rode a horse drawn carriage up to a castle. Too bad I forgot my princess dress.
-Rode through the tunnel where Princess Di was killed.
-Took an evening boat tour of Paris via the Seine River.
-And many other sweet moment with my honeybuns.
THANK YOU POULTONS for such lovely Christmas memories! We love you!
