So anyone who knows me knows that I sort of have this thing for Switzerland. When I was younger (until I was about 34, actually) I wanted to move to Switzerland a raise goats. I adore chocolate and cheese, The Sound of Music is one of my favorite movies, I named my cruiser Liesl and if I could have any talent I'd want to be a world-champion yodeller. Because, you know, you never know when that's going to come in handy. Anything Bavarian is my cup of tea. So now that we live in E. Washington, I knew that a trip to Leavenworth was ineveitable. I'd never been! This weekend we went, and Anna and I both totally fell in love with all its' kitchy goodness.
I want to live here.
Look where we stayed!
We took a sleigh-ride through the woods, where we saw a bunch of wild turkeys and a coyote stalking them.
We visited a hat shop. Nevermind psycotherapy; I need to start saving for braces. sweet jeebus.
And I bought some elves! Ack!! Can you stand it?? It took every ounce of restraint I had not to drop $200 on a cuckoo clock. I still sort of regret it.
But something tells me we'll be back.
