August 1st

Happy Swiss National DAY!

As my mother is Swiss, my dad descends from Swiss ancestors, and I practically grew up in the Swiss alps (kind of an exaggeration.... but we still visit often!), August 1 is always a special day for me!

It is like the 4th of July in Switzerland.....tons of fireworks, traditional food, and lots of decorations. Family, friends, fire, food. What more could ya want on a holiday?!

(All photos were taken in Switzerland- June 2010)

I love that country. It is actually my dream to live there someday.....hopefully it will come to pass. If not, I am sure heaven looks just like it! 

So, to celebrate, go grab some family and eat Swiss chocolate, cheese, and bread :)


  1. It is so beautiful there! I'm jealous that you get to visit so often. Miss you! Hope you're loving life :)

  2. oh my goodness! i totally forgot. we will have to have a belated celebration with zopf and chocolate. thanks for the reminder. im putting it on my calendar for next year
