Things I will miss about Germany, part 1

  • Saturday morning market downtown…nothing like walking down and getting fresh bread, fruit, veg, and flowers for under 30 bucks!
  • No speed limit sections on the autobahn…didn’t know an Explorer could go that fast!
  • The Germans…yes, some are very grumpy, but the others are so warm and welcoming and always want to practice their English.
  • The beer…though not as much as Bubba is going to miss it.
  • The price of a GREAT Chianti at the local Italian wine store…$4?!?! Are you kidding me?

There are many more...stay tuned.

Saturday Mornings

Don't you love lazy Saturday mornings, giggling under the covers with the whole family?

Welcome to my first blog! I have been a lurker for a while now and decided to try my hand at this thing we call blogging. I have read many inspiring stories of the cathartic and cleansing effect of putting your thoughts out there for everyone to read. I feel that I need some cleansing and catharsis in my days. So, I hope you enjoy my journey...

A little about me: I am a proud military spouse of 13 years. I have a wonderful husband, Bubba, who is still making me fall in love with him every day. I also am blessed with the funniest, coolest, most charming child on the planet, Boyboy (of course, I am a bit biased). We have one crazy, lunatic dog, Melly, who is a Heinz 57 mix of too many breeds to count whose favorite past time is chasing the airplanes across our backyard. We are currently living in Europe which I have loved, but 6 years is enough and we will soon make the ever exciting PCS back to the good old USA. This will be our 10th move and you would think it would get easier, but each time is a potential episode of the Beverly Hillbillies.

I have many interests and hobbies which I think is a result of moving so much or adult ADHD, I haven't decided. Scrap booking, knitting, travelling, exercising, shopping, and cooking to name a few. None I excel at and most are in half-completed stages (hence the ADHD diagnosis). I have just completed my second degree in Residential Planning (glorified furniture re-arranger) and hope to put my skills to work once Bubba retires, or sooner.

I look forward to sharing my brain musings with you. Hope there is not too much open space up there.
