Our Brief Visit to Holland

Before our journey across the Atlantic, we flew to Amsterdam.

Holland is a such beautiful country!  As our plane landed, I was struck by the lush green fields, beautiful windmills, and flowers.   Even the little homes were adorable.

Of course, we'd definitely have to stop by a tulip shop and buy some bulbs for our yard!  I also bought a handful of tulip-inspired gifts for my mother and grandmother.  This is the little shop we stopped at!

Michael and I promised each other that we'd come back to the Netherlands for a vacation just as soon as we could afford it.  When Michael worked for NATO, he lived there for almost 3 years.  I can't wait to some day see his old apartment and meet some of his friends from there!
