Time for a change...

I have had a lot of exciting news to share over the last twelve months! First, I redesigned my blog. Then I announced we were having a baby. And NOW - I get to make another exciting announcement. It has been three years and three months since Brian and I, newly engaged, packed up our life in NYC and moved to London. It was thrilling, scary and exiting all at the same time. We have had some amazing experiences living abroad and wouldn't trade that time for anything in the world.

But - we have decided that it is time to go back home. It's time for us to move back to the US of A!

In a little less than a month we will packing up our London home and shipping it all back across the pond. But we aren't headed back to NYC. Now that would be too easy. Much to our parents dismay (especially with the little one on the way!) we are heading off on a new adventure...

Photo project - Childrens Photography part 4

During much of November and December I was a busy bee building my Children's photography portfolio. Our friends were kind enough to let me invade their home one afternoon and take some pictures of their two beautiful kids, Mia and Luke. The family had recently returned from a trip back to the US so everyone was a little jet-lagged - or so they claimed! The kids were running around playing like crazy, only towards the end did Luke show signs of fatigue (by laughing uncontrollably - I hope my kids are like that when they are tired).

Hotel Mayr - Italy

Even though we don't even own our first house yet, we already know where we want to own our second house. Yes I realize I am putting the cart before the horse here, but stay with me. The first time we went to the Dolomites in October 2010 we fell in love. We fell in love hard. We had a full on affair with the Dolomites, returning there for Christmas 2010 and 2011. We would have gone back a few more times last year but we forced ourselves to explore new places. 

Whats so magical about the Dolomites?

BMW Museum - Munich, Germany

During our last full day in Munich we decided to check out the BMW Museum. I could really care less about going there, but Brian was super excited and I had heard good things so decided to I tag along. We thought that we would spend a couple of hours there in the morning and then head back to the markets in the afternoon. WRONG. We ended up spending almost a full day there - there was so much to do and see!

As I said, I am not really a cars and motorcycle person. Yes, I appreciate nice cars and someday hope to own something nice myself. But to see a whole museum? Meh. However, once we arrived at the museum and walked inside I was blown away. This place was no joke.

*most photos in this post were taken by Brian - he did a great job!*

Christmas for Two - Munich

We had a great time in Prague but were excited to get to our next destination on our Christmas vacation - Munich.  We decided to take the train, which was easier than driving and less stressful than flying. The train worked out perfectly. We splurged for first class seats (they were only a few Euro more) and ended up being two out of five people in the whole train car. The trip was a little long (six hours give or take) but we went through some beautiful countryside and it even started to snow the closer we got to Munich.
