Sometimes I stop, and think,

I live in Switzerland.

And I am so thankful for all the opportunities in my life, for the beautiful and amazing friends I've made so far, and for the epic, inspiring beauty of this part of the world.

Yesterday I watched Lord of the Rings with my friends, and I am always so inspired, and so envious, of the adventures of others - but today, when I was driving to church, there was a beautiful, clear view of the French Alps, and it took my breath away all over again, and I remembered I am on an epic adventure of my very own, and my life is full of beauty and love, and incredible people, and I was so content, and excited.

While I am anxious to see what my life will look like come August, when I leave, right now I am so exhilarated for the possibilities and opportunities that are before me.

I found your blog from onebigyodel and I am glad I did. I cannot believe I haven't seen your blog before.

It is indeed grand to live in Switzerland. I hope to follow along with your adventures here.

All the best, Jessica.

I know what you mean about all of a sudden thinking, "where I am," and "wow, I really am living in Europe." Kind of strange and amazing!

Jessica, I can't believe I haven't really found your blog either!

And I'm so glad the two of you can identify with what I'm saying. :)

Happy Holidays!
