Magee/Uhlik Family 2019 Nutshell News

Happy New Year! We just got back from a whirlwind, family infused, two-week California vacation where we had lots of fun with many family members, not the least of which is our eldest daughter, Colleen.
Sisters: Maureen and Colleen














32+ hours of travel later and we arrived back home in Switzerland at midnight on NYE!
Fireworks just for us! (as seen through our train window)











New Year's Day (my 9 year blogaversary!) was spent trying to get back on track in this time zone. Not an easy task...
Smidgey is sleeping off her vacation, too.














Which brings us to today. The day we were supposed to go grocery shopping as our refrigerator is empty. And then I remembered. 2 January, is actually a bonus holiday in Canton Zug: Saint Berchtold day. Since shopping is not happening, today became the perfect day to reflect on 2019!

So, without further ado, the Magee/Uhlik Family 2019 Nutshell News:

















*2019 trips:
Paris (February)
30th Anniversary cruise to France/Spain/Italy (April)
Paris (June)
Bern (July)
London (October)
California (December)

Happy New Year, dear reader! Here's to making 2020 amazing with lots of kindness, compassion, and more regular poetic postings. 😃

    1. Thanks, Dave! It is amazing what you can compose in your head when you are awake at 3am! Looking forward to a full night's sleep, soon. And it was awesome to see you and Anna and laugh in only the way you can make me. Until next time... =)

    2. That was actually Anna's comment - "you go girl" is not in my lexicon!! But - Happy New Year anyway. xx
