Day 101 – Antique Store Treasure Hunting

One of my favorite Downtown Sanford daytime activities is without a doubt Antique Store Treasure Hunting. And it may not even be for things I will end up buying. Sometimes just taking a picture will satisfy my need for cute, quaint and simply cool. I love adding those 70s and vintage filters to my pictures on Instagram, because it turns them into “authentic shots” – it’s almost like time traveling. And that...

Day 100 – Nursery Lights on Upsala

We couldn’t help but take my sister down to the legendary Upsala Road Christmas lights in Sanford after shopping tonight. Everyone who’s ever driven down Upsala during the holidays will know what I am talking about. And if you missed them this year, put this on your MUST SEE list for next year, you won’t regret it 😉 (my picture doesn’t do these lights any justice) PS: Triple Digits today!! I made it to 100. 265...

Day 99 – Christmas Morning

This sure looks like Christmas morning to me 🙂 Tia Gabi and her nephew Lukas! I am happy that we decided to also adopt the American tradition of opening gifts on Christmas morning in our (holiday themed) pajamas, of course along with a yummy pancake breakfast. We basically doubled the fun since we also open gifts Christmas Eve as it is tradition in both Germany and Colombia. I hope you can forgive me that some of the next few posts...

Day 98 – Nativity at All Souls

It’s Christmas Eve and my sister arrived last night from Germany! I couldn’t be happier to have her here with us to celebrate Christmas (and New Year’s) with us. This afternoon we attended mass at All Souls Catholic Church. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to follow much of it because both of our boys acted up and just wouldn’t calm down. I certainly wasn’t prepared for this because up until now we never...

Day 97 – Free Gift Wrapping

If I ever had to publish a list of “10 Things You Sure Didn’t Know About Me”, one item on that list would be the fact that I am the WORST gift wrapper you will ever meet. It will literally take me 2 hours and an entire roll of gift wrap and scotch tape to wrap a simple small toy. OK, I might be slightly exaggerating but let me tell you, I am NO gift wrapper; never was and never will be. The problem is that when you...

Day 96 – Illuminated Bikes

Only in Sanford… and yet another reason why our little town is so great! How about watching dozens of Christmas light illuminated bicycles pedal through historic downtown? Well, I can’t say I actually saw them (had to head home after the illuminated boat parade yesterday), but Christina sure did and snapped this fantastic picture of the group. So creative, quirky and cool! Won’t miss this one next...
