We're baaaaaaack! Okay, so I can't say it like that creepy little Poltergeist girl. The Furballs have Velcro-ed themselves to me and won't let me out of their sight. They're also planning my Imminent Downfall because I failed to smuggle prosciutto back for them...
Put simply, it was 2 weeks of pure heaven all wrapped up in 4 different languages: French, Italian, Dutch (our friends), and English. Seriously, I was never really sure which language I should be speaking!
I have so much to blog about and I'm planning on splitting it into several posts (The purchases! The gifties! The food! The random funny things that happened! The huge work insights I had - huh? - no, I'm serious about this one...). But for now, we're still trying to overcome the time difference (it feels like it's 8:30 pm and we should be going out to dinner right now) so I'm going to make this post a selection of a few teaser photos.
