#31 days … this was the last month of 2014 … our December

A happy hello in 2015!

Wow … so exciting, 365 days passed by … welcome in a new year, with new possibilities and opportunities! Today I don’t want to write about the new year yet, but of course it’s time for the review of December!

It was a month between Italy and Germany, full of excitement and a relaxed Christmas time – just as the period before Christmas has to be … the most wonderful time of the year!

In December we…

… started opening the little bags of our DIY Christmas Tree Advent Calendar (I so love the little surprises every day!) …
