Happy Christmas with Jesus!

“But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:10-12

“For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, 
   Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6

Counting blessings and creating traditions

 

Such a packed year 2011. Probably the most eventful and crazy, in a very positive way. We have been so blessed by so many people, we’ve crossed valleys but also reached mountain tops, and every second we felt God’s hand at work. Oh, He is so faithful! Wedding preps, moving house, finishing Uni, going through the wedding, travelling abroad 3 times this year, graduation and starting a new life as a couple, in all of these we had many answered prayers.

Since the beginning of December Chris and I began to create our own family traditions, little things that will be only ours to pass down. And I think it’s working, and we’re having lots of fun whilst at it. Three months have gone since our wedding but it really seems longer, like we’ve been together since forever and we cannot perceive everyday life without each other (it might sound cheesy but that’s how we feel, and many times life IS cheesy! :D). We said it to many people and we say it again, we strongly recommend marriage :)! Can’t wait to enjoy our first Christmas together!

Greek honeymoon

After the fairytale wedding ended we headed for Greece by car (around 12 hours to get there) – destination: Thassos Island!!! Beautiful, quiet and so enchanting, and of course, really good weather. We chose to go there because it is so different from the other Greek islands, in that it is not as arid because of the pine covered mountains. We had it all in one package: mountains guarding our back and the beach just outside our hotel! We loved every second of it! We strongly recommend it (both the place and the honeymoon phenomenon – which comes attached to marriage!! :D)!

very very old olive trees

An improvised grill! We kinda’ charcoaled the fish at the end 😀
