(Almost) Wordless Wednesday :)


Over here in Germany it's customary to have an Adventcalendar in the run up to Christmas. There are many types available, from chocolate-filled ones to handmade ones. Usually it's given to children, so that it makes waiting for the big day more bearable ;-) So, imagine my surprise when I received this super cute Adventcalendar from my sweet friend Verena! This was so unexpected that it literally left me speechless. Of course, I'm absolutely delighted! I have already opened days one through ten and totally love the thoughtful trinkets, baubles and yummy chocolates! HUGE thanks to Verena for making this month extra special :)
Meine liebe Freundin Verena hat mich letzte Woche mit dem auf dem obigen Foto gezeigten, super süßen Adventskalender überrascht! Damit habe ich überhaupt nicht gerechnet...die Überraschung ist ihr absolut gelungen :) Ich habe mich darüber riesig gefreut (und freue mich immer noch). Verena hat ihn so liebevoll gebastelt und befüllt. Ich bin total begeistert! An dieser Stelle nochmal ein riesen DANKESCHÖN, liebe Verena :)

  6. So sweet! My family usually did an Advent calendar when I was a kid. Last year my dad gave a (German) chocolate one to us to share, but this year we don't have anything.

  7. Awww! That's so sweet! We didn't do advent calendars growing up, but I plan to adopt the tradition when we (eventually) have a kid because I think it sounds like a lot of fun.

  10. Oh my gosh! Thanks for the reminder! We have an advent calendar and Joe and I don't remember to put the little things on the tree without the kids here to do it for us. Oops.

  11. What a thoughtful and sweet gift! We discovered the chocolate filled advent calendars when we lived in Germany over 25 years ago! I continued buying the ones from Germany after returning to the states and I still buy them for my "kids" and now my granddaughter every year!
