A Review of Our 1st Year Living in Germany.
January 19th, 2017, we officially transitioned from our Temporary Lodging Facility (TLF) to our house. Of course, we still do not have our furniture or the majority of our belongings…. but after living out of suitcases in 6 different locations (over the past 31 days), we were thrilled to be moving those suitcases to their … Continue reading “What DO you have to be thankful for?”
You are not alone.
January 4th, I woke up way before my alarm (a very rare event for me). I immediately rolled over and started shaking William, "Wake up! Wake up!

Yes, seemed to slip out first, probably because we were in the final month. … Continue reading Sweet Comfort
Two years ago today, William promoted to 1st Lieutenant. And I was so honored that he wanted me, his fiancé, to be there to pin him. It was an exciting day in our relationship and, as we left there to go take engagement photos (because when you're dating long distance you cram 896 things into a 3 day weekend), I distinctly remember thinking … Continue reading Days Like Today
The clock struck midnight and I was still lying there wide awake. I had tried everything: Reading. Essential Oils. Praying. Gilmore Girls. Nothing was working.
