Winter started out really mild and ended up being snowy into Spring instead, either way we are happy with sunshine or snow.
This winter new friends were made, we moved to a new house in a beautiful location and the girls learned new skills.
We had lunch across the border in Serbia with friends, because we can!
We stopped by a monastery in Serbia before heading home.
Emma stared ice hockey, well at the moment just learning how to ice skate, but she loves it!

At the beginning of December we moved out of our apartment in Sofia and into a house 48k away by Izkar Reservoir. The above photo is the view from our new home, I love waking up to it everyday and don’t miss living in the city at all.

We added to our family, this is Poppy and Emma’s best friend.

Millie liked going down the hill, but refused to be pulled up. She didn’t last long before wanting to be inside.
Emma loved skiing and did really well, next season should be even better!

A trip to Cottage Farm is great no matter the season. Always delicious food, great company and Emma’s in her element helping with the animals.
Scouting out camping spots for the coming season, this was a favorite of the girls for the ideal rock throwing area.
