Was it me, or did 2016 not just fly by but whirl by and take us all down with it? I don't think that was just me. This year was crazy. My personal life was absolutely insane. In a good way and in some tough ways. I LOVE end of the year recaps and reviews, so feel free to link up yours at the bottom of this post. I'm going to go over the highs and the lows, the best and the worst, and can't … [Read more...] about Helene’s Best of 2016 (Link up!)
new year's eve
You guys, Heidelberg on New Year's Eve is insane. Imagine a country, a beautiful, ornate country. Filled with castles, palaces, ancient churches, and also, rules. Germany is one thing: very orderly.

Hope you came to this blog post thirsty, because I might have some drinks up my sleeve. New Year's Eve is coming. I am pretty pumped. Why? Because it's an excuse to dress up a little nicer, add a little more sparkle than normal, and have a cocktail or four. That's just what Sarah and I did.
