Nothing makes a girl feel better than having a lot of supportive friends. Thanks so much for all of your kind comments. We're trying to tackle one thing at a time around here. It looks like we will have both apartments for a month so we can take our time (although I don't want to, I just want to get the move over with so we can have some fun and focus on Christmas around here.)
Speaking of Christmas, if you're looking for some holiday cheer, fun things are popping up all over town. If you follow the tradition of setting out your shoes for Sinterklaas and you want to really be authentic, you can pick up chocolate letters at the old Dutch store (or you can order them online if you don't live locally).
