Scan 1
Eleven years ago this week, Trevin and I spent about a month in Europe. Aaaah, those were the days. This photo that I clicked with my phone reminded me of a similar photo from our European Holiday.


So many things have changed during the past eleven year...
Cross-country moves
3 kids (almost 4!)
Digital cameras

I have often longed for those days again. Traveling through Europe footloose and fancy free. But as I compared these images, I realized that I live in my own sort of "Switzerland" and the things that made me happy then are just a little different than the things that make me happy
now. And, if that's not the truth may Bocca della Verita bite off my hand!

And, although this is not exactly the same, this reminds me a lot of the thoughts I have had about Switzerland lately.

You do live in a most beautiful area....just like Switzerland! And you really haven't changed a bit. You look just as fab as you did 11 years ago. Love ya, Court!

Loved the video,Court...although it does make me a tad bit sad. What a wonderful accent to listen to, though, right?

Wow! Your area looks just gorgeous and reminds me of so many special places across Europe. Fun to drift back to the past and relive wonderful travel adventures...if only for a moment. And then, to recreate, right where you live, some of that unforgettable beauty. Just right! xo

Loved the video, thanks for sharing. I have been thinking a lot lately about how life doesn't really ever turn out how you plan. It was nice to hear him say enjoy your trip even though it is different from what you planed. I needed to hear that right now!
