Change is a comin’…

13 Sep

So, as you already know, I’m waaaay behind on blogging.  I have tons of pictures to post and stories to share.  I promise.  They are coming.

In the meantime, I have been working on a few changes.  You know, blogs are sort of like rooms in your house- sometimes you get tired of looking at the same thing.  And you need a change.  This is the case for me.  I’ve been growing tired of the look of my blog and wanted something new.  What started out intended to be just a simple change of appearance turned into a completely new site.  So now you need to check it out!  If you want to still read about what cities we see, what German words we butcher, and what toys Quinn is throwing in the toilet this week…you’ll have to subscribe over at the new site.  All my posts going forward will be made over there.  And all of the previous content of course has been moved too, so it’s all there under one nice, new roof.

I realized that everything contained in this blog basically amounted to the best and worst (wurst…get it), the good and the bad of living abroad and doing it with a toddler in tow.  I hope you’ll continue to follow along over at the new site!



There’s no place like home for the holidays….

16 Dec

I think I have always thought being home with family was important. But this year, “there’s no place like home for the holidays” couldn’t ring any truer for me.  We leave TOMORROW  to head back to the States to spend time with our families for Christmas and New Year’s and well…let’s just say I am filled with child-like excitement about being home.  I’m ready for the company of family and friends, the comfort of my parent’s kitchen…and yes, I’ll be honest-perhaps a Chipotle burrito.  Mostly the first two though.

The weather is getting a bit dicey here though, so let’s pray for smooth sailing on the trip home!  I can’t wait!!

Two is better than one!

These look good together...I know.

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 on and she grabbed another one and started trying to put it on too.  I (stupidly) thought she wanted to switch hats so I took off the first one in order to switch them for her.  Well, clearly I have no idea about fashion!  Quinn let it be known she wanted the first hat still on.  As well as the second hat.  The good news is I bought the orange hat before leaving the States and have tried on numerous occasions to get her to wear it.  She pretty much refused every time and I was feeling like I would never see that cute hat put to use.  Now she actually is interested in it.  Yay!


Is it too early for a dress up bin?
