Brussels Part one…

Well technically this is part two if you count the little “preview” I posted yesterday.  But, let’s not split hairs and just get down to the business of our time in Brussels.  It was awesome.  It was very hard not being with our families during the holiday.  We missed our families, friends, and let’s be […]

Brussels to come!

Most of you know that Joe, Quinn, and I went to Brussels over Thanksgiving for a mini get away.  We had a wonderful time and I managed to take quite a few pictures.  This is just a little preview, but I will be posting more in the next day or two. More to come soon!!

Giving Thanks…clearing out the clutter.

I’m a tad late with this….I mean Thanksgiving was three days ago.  But, let’s view this as the season for Thanksgiving and then I’m good to go right? This year I had a lot to think about when it came to giving thanks.  That’s not to say I don’t think about this regularly- I do. […]

Two is better than one!

Since I posted “This is how I roll” the fascination with hats has grown.  Daily in the last week Quinn has found one of her hats and “asked” to have help putting it on.  (These fitted winter caps are still a little hard for her to manage by herself.)  Today she already had a hat […]

Hopelessly Devoted to You…

I need to just carry a camera with me at all times.  I know, I know if I had a cell phone with me I would also have  a camera if the need really arose.  But, I was on a walk with Quinn and, well, I didn’t have either one with me.  As they say […]

Sporty Spice goes to the zoo

This weekend we took Quinn to the Frankfurt zoo!  Our German instructor was nice enough to offer to meet us there and teach us what some of the different animals were called.  Once again we tackled the train system to get there, which felt awesome.  And I should also mention that the weather was amazing. […]

This is how I roll…

Usually I can’t keep a hat on Quinn.  Or a headband, bow etc.  She has entered the “I defy you to make me look cute with those annoying girly accessories, mom.”  And I’m sure if she had the coordination to do it she would be rolling her eyes by now too.  Occasionally she will take […]

So what's been going on?

I’ve been neglecting the blog lately…not intentionally, mind you.  Just, somehow a week has passed and I realized I haven’t put anything down about what’s been going on.  Shame on me!  So, I think I’ll give a bullet points overview of what has been happening lately.  Here’s what we’ve been up to: We had our […]

Nanstein Castle

This week we took advantage of some lovely fall weather and drove to an area about an hour or so outside of Frankfurt called Landstuhl.  There we had lunch and then visited the Nanstein Castle.  The first legal reference to the castle in a document was in 1189, but it is said to be older […]

The sign says it all…

So this is the most interesting sign I’ve seen so far while here.  And it doesn’t even require knowledge of German to read it! This sign happened to be posted near a castle we visited (which I will be posting more about soon).  I heart this sign.  I wish this sign was posted EVERYWHERE.  One […]
