thankful thursday {link up}

{link up your own Thankful Thursday post below}

This Thursday I am thankful for:

1) Breathtaking history. Oh.my.goodness. Anytime I am ever in Europe, I am always amazed at all of the gorgeous architecture. The cathedrals here absolutely take my breath away. This is the famous Cologne Cathedral...simply stunning, right? It is the world's largest gothic structure and the stained glass windows are nothing short of magic.



2) Amazing hosts. We are here to celebrate the wedding of a very dear friend... the bride was actually my family's exchange student when I was 12, and lived with us for almost a year. And while her wedding day is only a few days away, she and her family have been absolutely amazing hosts... taking us to Cologne, cooking dinner for us, introducing us to their favorite pub, and showing us all around Aachen. I mean, it's not like they have a wedding to prepare for or anything:) (photo: Lance & the bride's mother)

3) Incredible German food. I have had some of the best food in my entire life this past week. On our first night here, we had the best homemade pork roast and dumplings I have ever tasted. I'm not kidding when I say I went to bed thinking about the food. No, seriously.

What are you thankful for this week? Share your own Thankful Thursday post below... be sure to visit everyone on the list and share the love...
