We've been here now for two months

Today we hit the two month mark of living in Amsterdam. In some ways it feels like we've been here for much longer than that. Our first visitor comes this weekend and then from now on every single weekend (maybe we get one off in April) we are either traveling or hosting visitors until June.

It's been hard being alone for these first couple of months, so we're looking forward to seeing some familiar faces. However, I am sure that somewhere by mid-April or May we will be looking back on these quiet winter months fondly.

This is the view out of our front window of snow falling. (Make sure to click on the image to enlarge it if you want to see the snow.)

I'm impressed.

It was 6 total suitcases actually. And, Dave had more stuff than me! You should have seen how many cute jackets and pairs of shoes that got left behind. Boo hoo.
