I can’t believe its my last night in Switzerland!  It has been the most incredible adventure spending Christmastime in this Winter Wonderland for the last week.  I have shared some of the highlights with you through previous blog posts; however, words and images can hardly express the magic of the moments that we enjoyed here.  It was the best Christmas that I have ever had.

Tomorrow we are off to Paris for four nights and will be ringing in the New Year there!  

During these days between Christmas and New Years, I like to take some time to think about my goals and resolutions for the coming year.  I have come to realize that true happiness is no longer attached to achieving something in the distant future but rather to be present and accept the moment for what it is.  This week spent skiing in the breathtaking alps has really enabled me to be more present and aware than I am when I am living in my routine and concerned with linear time.  I would have to say that this is the biggest blessing of my time spent here. As I sit here thinking of my goals for 2013, being more present in all aspects of my life definitely ranks numero uno.
