Paris for Easter….

Well, I’ve managed to neglect this blog for months…like about seven of them.  There was so much I wanted to share from summer.  But, I couldn’t get my tush in gear to make it happen.  And now here we are about 6 weeks away from welcoming a new baby and life certainly isn’t slowing down. […]

Bamberg Part 1

Recently we snuck away for a couple of days to spend some time in Bamberg, Germany.  This is in the Bavaria region about 2 hours away (unless you end up stuck in a completely obnoxious re-route intended to SAVE YOU TIME but instead leaving you driving in circles to get around some construction that obviously […]

Weekend adventure

Making it to Gummersbach, Germany has been on our ‘to do’ list since moving here.  Seeing the town from where your last name originates is a must do.  Never mind that our American way of saying the name is barely understood here.  Or that Quinn thinks our last name is just Bach.  Yes, better to […]

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 […]

Christmas market

Christmas is big here.  By the end of November Christmas markets are popping up throughout the country and in several neighboring countries as well (last year we went to one in Brussels, Belgium).  All the major cities have them, usually lasting for several weeks up through the holiday and sometimes into the New Year.  In […]

Hey you entrepreneurs…

I might have stumbled across something brilliant.  First let me give you the back story on how I came across this idea. I finally found a place to get my hair done.  It took me about 10 months.  Which, you know, is both a long time and a short time depending on how you’re counting, what […]

Okay seriously…this is getting old

I’m still stewing about losing the majority of my last post I was working on.  Super annoying.  I really want to finish sharing about our adventures this *cough* summer.  Seriously, day light savings time has ended…we need to move on.  So, this time it’s for real people.  I’m wrapping up this ongoing, ever-living, just.won’t.die post […]

London…it’s a wrap.

Okay, so let’s see….hmmm, we were in London in July?  Yes, that’s right.  And it’s October and I’m still blogging about it?  Also, correct.  Good.  Moving on, let’s wrap it up now. Our third day in London was probably our favorite.  Right Katie?  I think probably this had to do with the fact that we […]

London- phase two

I mentioned in my last post that my sister took a lot more pictures than I did.  This morning while I was catching up on Facebook I saw a whole slew of pictures my sister took during her visit that I hadn’t seen yet.  And I remembered why I took so few pictures.  Because I forgot […]
