summer highlights

I was hoping to update much this summer, but time just got away from me.  Since I've last written, we've moved into our new house, spent several weeks traveling in Europe and have been busy catching up with friends, unpacking boxes and exploring the area.

Some of our favorite parts included
* spending time with friends at a local lake;
* walking through beautiful medieval cities in Germany;
* counting castles (we got up to 23, I think);
* going for walks in the woods and in the Alps;
* sampling sausages, beer and chocolate;
* picking berries;
* knitting (notes to come on Ravelry).


Cologne cathedral

Aachen Cathedral (with Charlemagne's chapel)


Looking down on Garmisch-Patenkirchen

Neuschwanstein Castle - not medieval but an incredible setting.

Bacharach - Rhine valley

I finished 2 pairs of socks and a cardigan

So here we are at the end of August, our house is beginning to feel like a home, the children are back in school, and we are all looking forward to getting back into a routine.  I hope that I will have more time for my own projects in the weeks to come, I wil update more on that soon.

It feels good to be back in this space.  How was your summer?
