Snow has come to Karlsruhe! It is such a blessing! Since I can remember Christmas only feels like a true Christmas when there are two things present: family and snow. Karlsruhe rarely gets snow but it's covering the streets and buildings as I clickity-clack away on the keyboard. The tree is up, the lights are on and the ornaments are in place. Anthony is here in Karlsruhe for three weeks. It truly is a good time of the year. We ran around and did some Christmas shopping yesterday, weaving through the crowds of families and tired children doing the same. The air and wind, however pierced through each layer of clothing we had on. We made our escape, by means of cutting through stores and malls.
Today however is truly a sunday--a day of rest. It's nice to not have any sort of schedule today but to eat breakfast at noon, have coffee somewhere in between and a cozy moment to sit back and read. So here I am now, trying to keep you all updated on the holidays here across the ocean. I'm sure it looks pretty similar to yours at home minus the stockings and other variations of holiday decorations.
Five more days to go!
Happy holidays and happy fourth week of advent!
