So long, Christmas markets/Hello New Year's resolutions

Thursday, January 20, 2011

I thought it would be cool to talk about about Christmas until the end of January and then start talking about New Year's Resolutions right around the time everyone has given up on theirs. What do you think?


My last and final trip to the Nuremberg Christmas market - beginning of December - about to eat a Nutella waffle:



Please note the vats of Nutella behind this man's head. Lucky him. :


You won't hear me saying that Germans offer the best cuisine in the world.
Erica, on the other hand, would beg to differ. She loves it! :

I normally don't do things like "New Year's Resolutions" but I figured that it might be good to be intentional about some changes I'd like to make. Of course I have several professional goals for the year and a few personal goals here and there but my #1 resolution is:

I want to email my grandparents every day. They mean so, so, so much to me and I don't communicate with them as often as I should. Just taking the time to write a quick email to them would really brighten their day, I think.

Maybe saying that here will help keep me accountable.

Well, on that note....Happy New Year....?!

Hi Jenni! Thanks so much for coming over to visit my blog! I thought I'd trot on over here to see what you blog about, and what fun I've had on my visit! Living in Europe is something I've always wanted to do, so I can live vicariously though you, right :-)!? Anyway, I look forward to following you and getting to know you even better! Have a wonderful day, ~Kristin from Living Graciously (and The Style Files)

oh precious heavens. nutella waffles combine two of my favorite things on this earth. what a delicious concept:) and i think it's beautiful that you want to e-mail your grandparents daily. every single night i was in college, i e-mailed my grandpa back home. i would always write long, rambling messages and his little, feeble hands would only reply with a sentence or two back, but it was so meaningful to me.
