Sorry for the silence this week. I have really missed writing here on my blog and am glad to be back! This week there was just too much going on to update. Things were busy with work and then traveling for the funeral.

And as Tobias said, sometimes the more solemn celebrations knit family and friends closer together in a way that happier celebrations don’t necessarily do.
Well, it’s finally the weekend and things are a little bit back to normal. And we got some happy news from good friends of ours, Matthias and Ariane – their baby Émile was born on Leap Day! I can’t wait to meet him this weekend! Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy!
