I’d started a post back in December, while in quarantine after our move, about the hard hit my curls had taken to the hard water here in Germany. A bit later, I decided to put it on the back burner because, well, who gives a shit about my hair? Lately, though, I’ve been getting so … Continue reading Curls.
Our last big trip of the year added another new country to our ever growing list. We boarded a plane at Frankfurt am Main, and disembarked at Fiumicino on the coast of Rome. We stepped out of wet chilly air, and into a delightful heat that kissed our tired skin like little butterfly wings. Since … Continue reading Roma, Italia
In January 2022, it will be five years since I became licensed as a registered nurse and February 2022 since I put that license to use and began working labor and delivery at the same hospital that I’d delivered Tristan. Years before I graduated nursing school, I’d snagged a job as a patient care tech … Continue reading A Pandemic & A Refugee Crisis
Tristan spent 2 months in the States with my parents. He was so brave and flew back to the States as an unaccompanied minor. Ever the climbing enthusiast, he was able to complete his summer climbing camp, as well as hanging out with all of his best buddies. I think it was an excellent, refreshing … Continue reading Faulensee/Interlaken, Switzerland

The kids would call this a “latergram,” but I’m just getting around to posting about my second visit to Paris. What was originally intended to be a three night stay in Mallorca, Spain (resort, plane, rental car all booked) turned into a last minute cancellation due to COVID numbers, and changed to maybe Italy, then … Continue reading Montmartre, Paris
I’ve been living in Deutschland for almost 7 months now. Never have I been this far from home for this long. And while I miss my people back in the States, I haven’t felt the first tugging of homesickness. My heart and soul belongs in Europe. From the dragon scale roof tiles, to the random … Continue reading Colmar, France
It’s been some time since Tristan and I have had the chance to travel. We’ve both been busy with work and school, but now that sixth grade is winding and the weather is trying to cooperate, we’ve been making plans. Spring in Deutschland has been a burst of rich, vivid greens littered with scarlet, pinks, … Continue reading Trier, Germany
Tristan and I have often simply pulled off to venture up to a castle ruin we see from the road. It’s easy to do here as they’re often scattered along in the towns and villages we pass. However, on our last pitstop, Tristan asked if we’d ever stop by a castle that was “whole.” He … Continue reading Castle Chronicles: Burg Rhinestein
This edition of “Little Things” is mixture of both positives and… less positives. Don’t misunderstand – I love living here (you know, in the whole four months that we’ve been here), but there are some things that I miss from home – as well as absolutely baffle me about Germany. While there are things that … Continue reading Little Things: Part Three
