Wow, 2015 was a phenomenal year for us!
Highlights of our year were of course, our weddings, our honeymoon in Bora Bora and finding out that we are expecting our little boy.
The year started with our birthdays, as usual, one week apart in January. We didn’t do too much for them as we were preparing for our weddings. We decided to have a low key year in general, in anticipation for our weddings. We went on some adventures around where we live (Luxembourg, France, Belgium, Germany) and went back to Dresden to prepare for the wedding. Our trips for the year included, Vancouver, Bora Bora, and spontaneous trips around our region. A big highlight for me was having my family come to Germany (their first time) and they seemed to love it, which was great! I am looking forward to having them come back -once the baby is here. After the weddings we were surprised by the great news that we were pregnant. Of course, after that, there are so many milestones that come, the sex, the ultrasounds, the 2nd, 3rd trimester and general planning.
Our weddings approached so fast, and flew by so fast, that the anticipation came and went faster than I could have ever imagined. We had the traditional German ‘Polterabend’, then we celebrated ‘Männertag’ with a Canadian bike tour along the Elbe, we had our rehearsal dinner (both in Dresden and Vancouver) and got to celebrate our weddings with our friends and family. After the wedding in Vancouver we jetted off to Bora Bora for nearly two weeks and got settled to life as a newly wedded couple for about a week before we found out about our son.
Now the anticipation has been a while coming, it seems like we always have something to look forward to, which I absolutely love!
In between the chaos, we have had family and a few friends come and visit, we have started (and finished) a pregnancy course where we met a few new friends, I picked up blogging more, Sven has learned French (very well!), we finally went to the Luxembourg Philharmonic (which has been on our list for the past year), we ended up getting a new car (unexpectedly), and just generally have enjoyed every part of this year, together.
We have spent the first half of 2015 preparing for our weddings, and the last half preparing for our son. Nothing could have made this year any better, it has been pure bliss! I always seem to say how great our previous years were, and that next year may not be able to top it, however, I truly believe the next years will only get better as we have so much on the horizon!
