To say the last few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind would be a serious understatement, but they were also an amazing few weeks.  We had a wonderful time with my parents: we threw our German wedding party, road tripped to Luxembourg for the day, celebrated Christmas with Andreas’s family, and finally packed our apartment into a van and drove to Berlin (which we could NOT have done without their help). Their time in Germany seemed to fly by, but I feel so incredibly blessed that they made the trip to spend the holidays with us- we had so much fun together.  I got real real lucky in the family department :)  We spent our last day together walking around the city and exploring our new home, and of of course had to fit in one more Christmas Market before the year ended and stopped by the Gendarmenmarkt Weihnachtsmarkt.

I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday, I have so much to share from the past few weeks, so stay tuned, hopefully you won’t hate me for posting Christmas pictures in the middle of January.  We are slowly unpacking and settling into our new apartment (which I am madly in LOVE with), Andreas started his new job yesterday and I will be commuting back to the Black Forest for work a couple days a week until the end of the month.  So things are still pretty crazy around here, but I am oh so happy to be finished with the move, even if we don’t have any furniture and our “dinner table” is currently a box of picture frames.  If any of you know any great online European furniture shops or stores here in Berlin please share!

and I hope 2012 is off to a great start for all of you!  I have a feeling this is going to be a really good year :)
