It was a Christmas miracle; we not only managed to (mostly) clean the house yesterday and wrap all the presents, but we also found the camera cord!

So here is the valley between Magny and Villers with the Mont Saint Victor in the background, in all its seasonal frosty glory.

And here is my favorite little chapel honouring the Virgin Mary between our two villages. Being pregnant I feel a particular kinship with her at the moment – well, except for the virgin part of course.

And the vineyards sleeping…shhhhhhhhhhhhh.

And of course our own little pair of Peace (well, not always) & Love.

Joyeux Noel from all of us Germains xo
