Merry Merry

It is safe to say that this year has been extra special. We have grown, learned, fallen flat on our faces, accomplished much, made new friends, made genuine fools of ourselves, but we have smiled through it all (well kind of). It is weird to think that we spent the first two-thirds of this year in Kansas City, it feels like the distant past, I guess we have been through quiet a bit in a small amount of time. Even as I sit here writing this, I can't believe we are living in Germany.

 In another of our many firsts, it is our first year as a married couple spending the holidays apart from at least one of our families. It has been a bittersweet transition to say the least. We dearly miss our loved ones back home, but we have enjoyed making this Christmas our own.
Our favorite is coming home to see our lit Christmas tree in our window, so warm, and welcoming.
I have especially enjoyed decorating our new home for Christmas this year; I am finally starting to feel like a grown up for the first time in my life. I went crazy with the candles and bought some simple bunches of greenery to put here and there. Nothing extravagant, but enough to make our home feel festive.

Merry Christmas, we love you dearly.
