My birthday was Monday and a few years ago we started a new birthday/Christmas tradition where we get out our tree and officially begin the Christmas season by decorating the house, drinking hot cocoa and blasting the Christmas music! Its always only a couple days before Thanksgiving, and I like getting a head start on it! This year we have a white tree (thank you christmas clearance!) and decorated it with all vintage glass balls. After decorating we took a walk around our (still very fall-ish) neighborhood.. and later went out to dinner with the whole family. It was perfect!
we spent a few days off out in the middle of nowhere in south germany. it was some of the prettiest views i've seen in my entire life. These pictures don't do it justice. I'd say fall is definitely the best time to visit places like this.
Berlin was by far the best city we visited in Germany. A local friend showed us around the city to all the neat historical places and directed us through the public transportation. We got coffee at a cute little place called Caras and walked around the big mall across the street, where i passed on the cutest orla kiely notebook, which i now strongly regret! (Why did i do that??)
