sissy time

my sister came to visit me while tanner was gone. i can't get enough time with her. she is the most positive, genuinely sweet girl to be around. i was just telling her tonight how tanner is the only person in this world that i could be around 24/7 and not get tired of him, and she came in at a close second ;) i feel very protective of her. i think it's given me a tiny perspective of what i will be like with my own children. i feel the need to give her advice about everything, although i know she needs to experience life and grow on her own. i just can't see her get hurt. she has a huge heart but it doesn't take much to break it. i feel the need to protect that. she is a beautiful girl with so much confidence and potential. i think every girl needs a sister. there is nothing in the world like it!

switzerland // st. moritz

since our trip to switzerland was short, we did most of our sight seeing from the trains. honestly, not a bad way to see so much beautiful countryside while staying cozy and warm. the closer we got to st. moritz, the heavier the snow became and we started seeing more people enjoying outdoor snow activities. we really wanted to go tobogganing but didn't have time. i loved seeing the horse drawn sleigh in the field and people cross country skiing like it was no ones business. 

^our hotel, which thankfully had a sauna and hot tub that we enjoyed every night. 

 ^cha, cha, cha, chocolate!

 ^this cracked me up. we were picking out chocolate and i turned around for 2 seconds then to turn back to see this. it's serious business.

we traveled to st. moritz from lauterbrunnen and although it wasn't my ideal quaint town, it was pretty amazing. it reminded me a lot of park city or sun valley. there was most definitely a lot of money in the city and it was fun walking around people watching. everyone was dressed from head to toe in fur and super expensive looking outfits. i'll post pictures of the ski resort but we took those on our phone because duh, i wasn't going to lug around my DSLR. we had THE most amazing skiing of our lives in st. moritz.

switzerland // warren

 one of the many things i love about switzerland is the fresh mountain water. these troughs are all over the place to drink from.

after our day in interlaken, we took a gondola ride to see the town of murren. it was a perfect little quaint village nestled high up in the alps. it was foggy up there but gorgeous non-the-less. it is somewhere that i would love to get back to visit during the summer. the views from the gondola ride were breathtaking, looking down at our cute little village we were staying in. i loved how tanner and i could just, be. there was no rush to do anything or anything in particular we wanted to see. we just wandered around and took it all in.

switzerland // lauterbrunnen and interlaken

 we arrived to lauterbrunnen around 9 in the evening and it was dumping snow. i felt like we were in a gorgeous snow globe and there couldn't have been a better welcome for us! we walked around our  quaint town in the peace and quiet and enjoyed watching the snow fall. 

since we arrived late at night, we had no idea what a beautiful canyon we were staying in. we had 360 degrees of beautiful views.

 ^real life!!

 we had all of sunday to recover from our jet lag. we slept 12 hours straight! we headed into interlaken to walk around the town. i wasn't really interested in seeing interlaken because the reviews didn't make it sound very cool but i loved it! the old part was beautiful and exactly what i pictured switzerland to be. it was cold, but we dressed for it and stayed pretty warm. i wanted a hot chocolate but it was like $6 for a pint sized cup so i passed. we skimped on food because it was expensive. we ate meats and cheeses and breads for 5 days straight, literally. that's all we ate. and chocolate of course! i never got sick of our meals either even though we had the same things 3 times a day. it was kind of fun to eat in bed, picnic style. i'm sure all my posts are going to be obsessing over how much i love switzerland, but i truly love it so much. i can't describe the feeling i have of that sweet country. it's amazing and i'm grateful for the opportunities that have allowed us to travel there!
