Hallo! Today I was inspired by Patience Brewster, an artist and illustrator of books, greeting cards, and a designer of Christmas ornaments and gifts, to share my favorite holiday memory. I love a good story and sharing them and scrapbooking them :)
This is a picture from Christmas season 2012.
Chris, Fox, Jane, and I flew from Los Angeles to be with my family in Seattle. My parents own a little cabin in the woods close to Leavenworth. I've always loved Leavenworth - it's built to look just like a Bavarian village. And-what-do-you-know, we now live IN BAVARIA! I just know that when we leave Germany and we visit Leavenworth, my heart is going to ache to be back in Germany. Anyway, if you know anything about Germany, you'll know their Christmas markets are wunderbar. So in an effort to be as Bavarian as possible, Leavenworth imitates the holiday season and Christmas spirit to the nines. And it is glorious. The twinkling lights. The soft and soothing sounds of holiday music. The fresh and powdery white snow. Oh my! We spent an afternoon in Leavenworth and soaked in the merriment. I will forever remember that Christmas season at home. Complete with watching an episode of X-Files on Christmas Eve :)
PS - This is my 1999th blog post. Do you know what that means? Tomorrow is EPIC GIVEAWAY DAY!!!
