This was our family’s first Thanksgiving since moving abroad, so we decided to spend it together being thankful for each other and for the opportunity to live in Germany by visiting and spending the night in a castle. We headed to one of my son’s favorite places, Anholt Castle, where we spent the night in a corner room of the castle, had a delicious family dinner and explored the castle and its grounds. My son had his map in hand to lead the way, while my husband and I followed with our cameras. My husband captured images of the castle and the light refracting off of the moat, while I took pictures of my son as his imagination had him discovering, and dueling dragons in the moat.
About Debbie Jovel, Contributor
I am a mom who has spent the last 20+ years working in the fashion Industry; my passion for fashion truly is 24/7. I have directed and managed Creative Design teams for global brands designing and developing: children's wear; women's wear; hard goods; beauty products; accessories & footwear. I love writing for Babiekins as my outlet for all things petit because I get to share my favorite fashions, decor and playthings with my fellow moms -- a result of my constant obsession with pinning and trend research which really never shuts off! I consider myself very "pinteresting" because I am always on the search everywhere for inspiration. Together, my family and I (my husband, son, dog and cats) love to explore and travel to experience and discover everything and anything new. I am a Minnesota girl who moved to New York City, then San Francisco, then Germany and can't wait to see where in the world our next adventure will be. Yes, I am busy; but I enjoy every second of motherhood, designing, traveling, exploring, writing, living, loving and laughing. You can find me on Instagram @petit_swag.
