A Brief Visit to the U.S.A.

For those of you who haven’t heard, I made a quick 7 day trip to Michigan in September.  It was kind of a big deal since I had not been back to the States in the over 4 years that I have been living in Germany.  I had not seen my oldest daughter, Sierra in […]

4 Years in Germany

Yep, it’s the anniversary of our big move overseas! It’s hard to believe that we have been living abroad, in Deutschland for 4 years!  The time has just sailed by. I wish we had been able to move here sooner, but thankful that we were able to move when we did. I am still so […]

A-Z Bookish Questions

I found the idea for this post over at Theycallmetater. He found the idea at Ashley’s Blog and she found it at The Boundless Books Blog.  It just seems like a bit of fun. I haven’t done anything interesting or fun in a while. Which means I have nothing much of my own to write […]

A Little Dirt Full of Hope

These two planters might not look like much, they aren’t very fancy.  They look a bit out of place sitting in my living room window.  But, they are filled with hope, and maybe a little magic too. They are filled with soil and freshly planted tomato seeds.  A variety of tomato that I have never […]
