Tomorrow I’m heading home to Seattle for the holidays, which makes me incredibly happy (despite the whirlwind of packing chaos that exists in my apartment right now). It’s been ages since I’ve truly been able to enjoy the holidays without bringing some form of work home with me, but that stars have all aligned to make that possible this year. Good thing too, because I haven’t taken a true non-work-related vacation in over year and it’s been two years since I’ve been back to Seattle. It’s high time for a break, I’d say!
But I do love the holiday season in Germany, so even though it’s a bit shorter for me this year, I’ve tried to enjoy it to the fullest! I visited the Christmas markets, ate Schmalzkuchen, made my own Advent wreath, decorated the cutest tree you ever saw, and threw a little holiday Kaffee und Kuchen celebration.
Now I’m really ready for the long day of travel ahead of me tomorow. I hope I’ll have time for some Seattle-based blog posts, so be sure to swing by if you have a moment!
Do you have a lot of traveling planned for this time of year? Or are you making yourself cozy right where you’re at?
