Even though it's February, I want to take you back to Christmas and share some photos from our trip to Europe. We were there from December 14-29 and stayed in seven different towns/cities. Europeans really know how to celebrate Christmas! Everywhere we went, there were markets and decorations and plenty of food!
Our first stop was Bruges, Belgium. If you've been to Bruges, you'll recognize the building below. It's one of the most photographed corners of Bruges. I loved how there were large Christmas lights in the trees.
Swans swam in the canal that ran around the building.
In Brussels they had a light show at Grand Place every night. The buildings were lit up with lights that flashed on and off to music.
We stopped at Orval Abbey on our drive from Brussels to Luxembourg because Orval is one of Mr. H's favorite beers. It was so fascinating to walk around the ruins of the old abbey.
We were pleasantly surprised by Luxembourg. We didn't really know what to expect. It is such an underrated city! An area of Luxembourg is built on two levels! It was so neat.
On to Strasbourg, France...their decorations were so fun! This is a building decorated with huge teddy bears!
They had fun Christmas markets, too.
Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany was my favorite town for Christmas. Being in the town felt like we were in a giant Christmas globe!
Munich was where we spent actual Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Because the restaurants closed early on Christmas Eve we decided to get a spread of meats and cheeses for our hotel room for dinner. It was delicious!
Munich's town squares were beautifully decorated.
Prague was our last stop. It was very pretty.
We even got some culture in and went to an opera. We saw Don Giovanni at the Estates Theatre.
Now that I'm back I am looking forward to catching up with all of my blog friends! I also want to let you know that my blog may be turning a slightly different direction. I started this blog because I wanted to share my love of home decor. Thanks to this blog I discovered a new passion, sewing! It all started when I made new seat covers for my outdoor chairs. You can read this post here. After I made those seat covers, I just kept on sewing! Since sewing is what consumes any free time I have, it only makes sense for me to capture that in this blog otherwise I'd have nothing to post about! I do hope you all stay and follow along with my projects, but I can understand if you don't. Not everyone interested in home decor is interested in sewing. With that said, it feels nice to be back :)
