I can’t believe in two weeks is Christmas! This holiday season is flying by!
I lit our the second candle on our advent tray yesterday (yeah, I know it’s not anything close to an advent wreath by a long shot, but better than nothing!). Don’t you love my arrangement of the Willow tree figurines that are standing by? :)
Germany had (a lot!) of snow this last week and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it. I really want a white Christmas! My only worry is that the snow might interfere with our travel plans, but at least we have a direct flight from LAX to DUS and we won’t be having a stop-over in London this time. Hopefully the weather will be agreeable next Sunday/Monday!
We spent the whole weekend preparing for out trip (we’re leaving in less than a week!), running errands, deep-cleaning our whole apartment (so that we won’t be coming back to a filthy place!), working on my Christmas cards and preparing packages that need to be sent out. I also had some time to knit, drink tea and watch some Christmas movies (e.g. ‘You’ve got mail’. Love it!).
I really, really love the holiday season. I wish it would last a little longer than it usually does.
Other good things this weekend:
