Christmastime in Black Forest was beautiful as usual. Nat and I both had nearly 12 days off work so we were able to spend a lot of time seeing friends and family and getting lots of wedding stuff done. It’s kind of difficult to imagine right now that this is the place where we’ll be getting married in five months.

Nathaniel’s mom and I made a sample “wedding cake” from a recipe book she gave me for Christmas (some of my other favorite gifts pictured here, too). And I still can’t get over the little felt animals my best friend, Jenae, made me! She has a new Etsy shop where she sells crafts like the animals she gave me. I definitely want her whole collection now.
