Journey Jots #7
Hello, guys! Happy Sunday to you!
I hope you are enjoying the Christmas season, however that looks for you.
We have decked our halls and I adore the glow of the Christmas lights and the fire in the evenings…it’s cozy and so very comforting. These two are my entire world and this picture just makes my heart melt!
We are in the Christmas spirit over here!
Last weekend, hubby and I went on a date to a German Christmas market downtown St. Paul that took place at Union Depot. You guys. It was SO CROWDED! Like..I felt like I was a cattle being pushed through a teeny tiny gate the whole time.
But look how pretty the ceiling is! It’s very art deco type design and it’s super neat.
However, the highlight for us was seeing this antique steam train that was called ‘The North Pole Express’. It was SO cool!! Look how big it is…I look like an ant standing in front of it!
Lastly, the lakes have started to freeze over now that it’s December. We took a magical sunset walk the other evening and captured this beautiful scene over our favorite lake.
