Catch up…

Awe man.  I hate playing catch up.  But here I am, months behind on this blog.  To be fair, it’s been a cah-razy summer.  An awesome, crazy, whirlwind of a summer, with visits from a good friend of Joe’s, my parents, a good friend of mine, and my brother.  And trips to : Munich, Strasbourg, Amsterdam, and various nearby […]

Days go by….

One right after the other.  Geez, sorry for the long absence.  I can’t believe it’s been so long since my last post!  Wow, where do I even begin?!  So to (hopefully) avoid boring you all to tears, let’s just do the “in a nutshell” rundown of what’s happened the last couple months. March was a […]

Ice Ice Baby….too cold, too cold.

Ain’t that the truth.  For reals.  People, it.is.cold.  Like go to Nuremberg to see your friend who is visiting and buy a new coat cold.  Like, eat potato soup every day of the week and layer up! cold. I know you all know this; clearly it’s making the news back in the States.  And oddly […]

Board books are sooo boring…

Like most kids her age, Quinn LOVES books.  In fact, “reading” by herself is one of the things she does to stay entertained while I make lunch or clean up around the house.  That and throwing things in the toilet.  You know, both equally entertaining.

Dream kitchen

Today we went furniture shopping.  Which, by the way is super fun with a toddler.  Seriously if you are ever low on excitement you should just take your kid (preferably around 19 months- you know, long on patience) to a ginormous furniture store.  The kind you need to be a cross country endurance athlete to […]

Good Friday

We have been very blessed to have wonderful neighbors all around us.  From the families living right next door, to the friendly people across the street, to the neighbors one building over, we have met lots of great people who we are getting to know better as time goes by.  On Good Friday some neighbors […]

Pieces and parts…a recap of sorts

I realize I’ve let a little time go since I blogged.  How and why could this happen!?  Haha-well, turns out life is getting pretty full around here.  So, I thought I’d give you a little rundown of what’s been going on.  This is a pretty random hodge-podge of what has happened as of late. *This […]

Dumb idea

I have mentioned before that closets don’t really exist here.  At least not the built in, don’t cut into the space of your room kind.  You pretty much have to buy a wardrobe or a schrank as they call it to house your clothes, shoes, and anything else you don’t want on display.  Most of […]
