We were walking James on a cold Saturday morning here in the Netherlands and we decided to walk through the town square of Gouda since it is right by our Airbnb and we wanted to see what people were selling at the market (Thursdays are the big cheese market days). We noticed flags in all…

15 years ago, on December 14, 2002, we were married!
I never thought we would move away from Orlando. And then we moved to Washington, DC. I didn’t think Washington, DC was our permanent home
Now that Christmas is approaching, Advent Calendars are popping up all over Vienna. In the US, we rarely saw Advent Calendars. I think I saw one at Trader Joe’s once. And of course you see Clark Griswold
It is so rare for the three of us to all be in one photo together! I forgot that I had my friend Jen take this photo for us on the 4th of July here in Washington, DC.
