This years Thanksgiving celebration was simple. Just my aunt, uncle and us,  great food, lovely music and good conversation.

feeling thankful

Time is passing like a dash of light…I can’t even believe it is only two and a half weeks till Christmas! And I can’t believe we are actually in the mids of  winter with real snow!! Looking at my blog you probably think I am kind of stuck in summer – and yes that would be kind of accurate! Since temperatures have been rather mild so far, and it felt more like fall to the Central-European in me, and it was hard for me to get into the Christmas mood! I must say….I was really ready not ready for Thanksgiving – and no I am absolutely NOT ready for Christmas!

Recapitulating my  last two to three weeks makes me feel all fuzzy and warm inside and I feel very thankful for my life right now! Fall has been so gorgeous here, offering an abundance of warm sunny days with possibility to enjoy the wonderful colored trees and bushes! Harvest festivals and markets have gifted us with delicious pumpkin treats and have made the transition from our amazing summer to darker days a joyful one!
