Hello friends one and all!
It’s time to say goodbye to 2017 and hope 2018 brings much brighter things.
The biggest thing that happened this year was I had to say goodbye to my mother. In May, with no warning, she was diagnosed with cancer and given 2-4 weeks to live. Together we decided to follow the principle “if you only have two weeks to live...," which led to a profound 4 weeks of love and celebration of life that let my mom live out her last days surrounded by friends and family and delicious food, music and dance. The most meaningful moment was when her dance group came to dance for her can get a glimpse of here and here.

After 18 months of being grounded by life circumstances, I finally was able to take another adventure and joined two high school friends for a week of Christmas Markets in Germany. We stopped in four places: Munich, Nuremberg, Bamberg and Berlin. Each city was a little different and each Christmas market was different. Nuremberg has the most famous Christmas market in Germany. Market stalls fill every open square. Gluhwein, special German mulled wine, is available morning to night. Nuremberg is known for its lebkuchen, special German gingerbread and it was delicious! About 2 million people visit Nuremberg over the month of December filling the square and enjoying the holiday fare and music.
