It was almost eight years ago that Jim and I honeymooned in Lauterbrunnen. It is an amazing valley in eastern Switzerland and ever since I first heard the cow bells ringing on a mountain hike I have wanted to show my parents this favorite place of mine. So we spent most of a week there in a cozy apartment in the heart of the valley. We hiked, rode cable cars, read, ate chocolate, sampled cheeses, watched boys play in water and sand, and generally marveled at the beauty surrounding us. It was a lovely and a good break after the business of packing.
