Christmas in CaliforniaReturning back to Germany after two weeks in California, I am feeling all kinds of blessed.  Being able to spend the holidays with family and friends in such an incredible place as the central coast of California, was the greatest gift of all.  I feel so very lucky to call this my home.

Here are a few shots from an afternoon hike up Madonna Mountain with Andreas and my mama.  After a week of almost non-stop grey days here in Berlin, I could really wish I could teleport myself back.  Oh sunshine, I miss you.

we were missing miss hazel so much that we had to kidnap one of my best friend’s dog, Emmy Lou, for the afternoon
