Europe Trip, Check!

Yesterday our Europe trip drew to a close and now we're back in our little London flat. There's been lots of hugging and "Oh, we're back!". Kurt even exclaimed, "Look you're making your oatmeal!" this morning. (We're kind of goofy and sentimental.) But thoughts of this being our last three weeks in London are hard to shake. As much as I've discovered I'm not a city girl and that I need a higher percentage of daily sunlight to function properly, I'm going to miss this country. I've learned so much this year and I just feel really grateful for it all. I hope you won't mind more sappy posts in the near future.

I don't want to bomb you with oodles of photos, but I'll share a few from our favorite places on the trip: Salzburg, Southern Bavaria and Switzerland. Generally anywhere with mountains, cute architecture and hearty food. These are the places we'll revisit when we're 70 and can finally travel again.

Following a massive trip it seems like this post should be longer, but I'm still processing it all. I can say though, I was overtaken by complete awe at how beautiful this earth is and how sweet the people on it are. God really is magnificent and I wanted to belt it from the mountain tops. It was also a great time to reflect on this past year's adventures and how blessed I am. 

Now for mastering the art of savoring our remaining time here while also prepping for our return home.

  1. So should I talk about how jealous I am or how happy I am that you got to experience all that you did? :)

    Check out my blog today. I nominated you for one of those bloggy awards. I just wanted to share with you how much I enjoy your blog. Don't feel obligated to take part, I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, so no biggy!

  2. Wow, the photo of the mountains and the fog looks unreal! So glad you had a great trip!

  3. I didn't realize you were only going to be in London for a short time. What were you there for and where is your "home" town? Looking forward to lots more pictures from your travels

    1. Yep, only a year here in London for Kurt's MA. My hometown is Tallahassee, FL, Kurt is from the Chicago area. We have yet to make a home for ourselves back in the US because we moved so quickly after marrying. It looking like we'll be in Chicago initially when we get back. :-)

    2. Ooh! Chicago. I would love to make a trip out there. What did Kurt get his Master's in?
