As of Sunday, I have been from Europe for two months. When I first got home, looked at the editing and catching up I had to do, and all the things that come with being gone for nearly a month, I told myself this post would be up at the beginning of May. Then the end of May. Optimistic? Maybe. Mid-June isn’t so bad though, and it’s way better than the five months I managed after our European Adventuring last year.

It’s rather difficult to summarize three and a half weeks of life into one sentence or paragraph, which is what I’ve been trying to do when people ask me, “How was Europe?!” If you know me, you know this is probably more difficult for me to answer than the average human, as I could tell you all about what we did, where we went, what we ate, with our without accompanying conversation on how I felt and how it did or didn’t’ change my perspective on this or that.

I’d like to say you’ll get more clarity as you enjoy these images from my time there, but you probably won’t. In reality, we didn’t do much and we didn’t go very many places. We spent a lot of time at home just being together, and it was absolutely perfectly splendid. The point of going to Europe this time wasn’t to see all the sights and scratch more countries off of my personal European map. It was to spend time with my sister, hold her new baby, and cuddle her other son. The point was just to be together, and it was just what we needed.

THIS. KID. As he told me one afternoon, “Auntie Wola! We are just pals.” Oh, be still my heart!

Pretzel Day

The picture below just makes my heart melt. L has always¬†loved watching the breadmaker. I have a nearly identical picture of him watching it last year when he still had to stand on the counter to see into it. Little Man, you’re growing too fast!

My sister and I are huge bread lovers, so she had the idea to try our hand at German pretzels. If you’ve never made pretzels at home before, DO IT. Oh my are they ever amazing. (Pretzels not actually pictured, ’cause we were too busy eating them.)

His expressions are the best.

If you’re wondering why there aren’t many images of the precious babe my trip celebrated, it’s because I couldn’t bear to put him down to pick up my camera. Why take a picture of this babe when I could hold him?!

L is thrilled to have a little brother. Watching him interact with and try to care for him is just precious. L learned that putting his hand on Baby I’s tummy sometimes calms him down, so he can frequently be found doing so.
