Countdown...

...in a few days (or hours even) it's time to finally say "Welcome to this World" to my best friend's new baby!
...in about a week it's time to say "Welcome to Switzerland".
...in about a week I can update with fun posts...about a "blate" or two I'll be having (according to Meghan! this is the word for it?!)

...to this Saturday and its annual Old Town Festival filling our ears with pretty music.
...to this Sunday when we find out who will win the European Soccer Championship.

And tonight, we find out if my team wins...because it just has to.
 Oh, it's Spain I'm rooting for...just so you all know!!! 

 In other words...
...I read an amazing post about living abroad and it is sooooo incredibly true. All of it. 
...and this Monday I went to see the following:

It was so good.
I've been a fan of Jeff Koons' for years. I foolishly took art history again last semester (just for fun, I didn't really need it!), and well, guess who we talked about. A lot. Yes, Jeff Koons. So you should have seen my face when I read that there's an exhibition in Switzerland with his artwork out there for us to see. I had to go. I took my fabulous mother. I had no one else. Yes, poor me. Either way, she wasn't thrilled to go to an exhibition she couldn't place the artist anywhere in her head or past...but then I showed her pictures, told her about him, she was willing and happy enough to tag along. Today she is proud to say she has seen it.

Mission accomplished.

I've never heard of that artist so you'll have to tell me all about him sometime.
