switzerland happenings...

About a week ago, I got back from a nine day trip to Switzerland. My sister lives there, in this true, Swiss village. She moved there after meeting her German husband in Tennessee. Yes, I know, sounds a little crazy. She's lived all over the world and on three different continents, and she's settled in a beautiful small town/village. It is very cute, her daughters (my nieces) are very cute, and the house is literally the best house in the world for taking pictures. There are huge windows everywhere and light just pours in!

I mean, look at this:

These are eggs. Normal, hard-boiled eggs. And they look like the most delicious, picturesque eggs you have ever eaten. Is this heaven? No. It is my sister's kitchen, which is a pretty awesome place anyway.

Apples look like they could be in a painting by Cezanne:

We ate lovely meals outside and enjoyed some really great weather. My brother-in-law and sister are both pretty trendy and artsy for Switzerland, so we of course had gourmet, whole-flour thin-crust pizza with adorned with fresh veggies and olives. My brother-in-law is of the shellfish eating sort, so he put prawns on it.

Overall, it was a lovely trip to visit my awesome family!
