I've tried to write this post multiple times and have deleted them all. The menial words I have on my tongue could never fully explicate my thoughts and emotions. Incredible growth has sprouted from my roots - like it's always been there, a seed within, waiting for the sunlight of experience for the little leaves … Continue reading Ein Jahr.
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.

It's comparative to a small Wegmans or Ukrops (if you're from Virginia). I pop my little plastic … Continue reading The Little Things: Part Two
The decision to become a nurse was simple: a switch flipped, a light flickered on, and my future came into focus.
