I'm realizing that one of my favorite things about living in Geneva is walking down, say, Rue de Marche and glancing in the window of one of the many chocolate shops and smiling b/c of whatever cute little chocolate confections the shop has on display to match the season. Yesterday it was little chocolate cars, some even with drivers, and a "GE" printed where the license plate goes. It took me a second to realize that this was due to the upcoming Salon de l'Auto, an annual event for which Geneva is famous (at least here in Europe).
And you know what I just realized? That our one year anniversary since we moved to Geneva just passed a few days ago. We have been here for a whole year. Has it really been that long? In some ways it doesn't feel like that's possible, yet when I think of all that we've done since then it seems hard to pack it all into 12 short months. I don't think I need to state what an amazing time this has been.
