We are blessed to travel a bit over the holidays. Especially with our favorite Bulgarians! On the way to visit Vania's family, we stopped in Batak. You have got to see this beautiful little town for yourselves. Until then, here are some pictures...
"I have always thought of Christmas-time, when it has come round... as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. And, therefore, uncle, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!"
- Scrooge's nephew
May we open our hearts, show kindness, and be forgiving & charitable, not just at Christmas, but throughout all of 2013!
Joy, Randall, and Liza
