Hello out there! Before I left the States, I had several friends and co-workers suggest that I start this blog. So, at their suggestion, I started writing about our lives so that I could take them all along with me on our great adventure. We have been here in Germany for almost 6 months now. I have done my best to keep everyone up to date with our adventures. It has been awesome. I wish I could share more pictures, but I am still without a phone. Yes, that is correct, I am living a full and happy life without a cell phone in the year 2017/2018. It can be done, but I do miss having a camera. Until I have one, I will just have to rely on Dirk to snap some pictures for me when we are out and about exploring. By that I mean, I probably won’t be sharing any pictures anytime soon because he never snaps photos when we are out and about.
The Holidays are over, and the New Year is in progress. I managed to gain 1kg with all of my Holiday baking, drinking, eating, more baking and more drinking.(And I loved every minute of it!) Although our winter here has been rather mild compared to our previous Michigan Winters, I am ready for Spring to come. It is too easy to hibernate in the winter, and I lose motivation. I have BIG plans to turn my balcony in to a vertical veggie garden.
Cheyenne, Sierra and I will be done with A1.2 Deutschkurs next week. Then comes the big test, the A.1 Language exam. We need to pass this to proceed with our immigration process. Wish us luck, we will need it!(We are all signed up to start the A2 level in February. It seems I will spend the rest of my life in school).
Sierra will be leaving us next week to head back to the States to start the next phase of her life. Please wish her luck as well. If you see her, maybe slip her a fiver so she has some gas money. Or have her over for dinner so that she isn’t eating Ramen Noodles everyday.(A mother can and will worry).
I have started adding some Monday Memory stories to my blog. Stories from “back in the day” and stories of how Dirk and I met, fell in love and moved to Germany. What are your thoughts? Do you like the Monday Memories theme? Should I continue with these stories? Or should I stick more to our new life here In Germany? Let me know what you like, I would love your suggestions!
