2️⃣3️⃣ Yay to 2023!
And just like that... we are in 2023 🥳
As usual, the holiday break is over faster than it should be 😆 Though, we tried to maximize quality family time and went on a trip to Switzerland 🇨🇭 and we LOVED it! I am going to write up a post about my main observations and impressions soon. Some epic scenery there. Sadly, photos can't express the depth and scale of the Alps, but still gorgeous.
My best wishes to you and your families!
For the next few weeks, the newsletter will be a little more (visually) condensed. I think I'm getting overwhelmed by the amount of white space in modern publishing tools. Let's see how it goes. Reply directly and let me know if you like the new format or not.
