The winter holidays have ended and the kids are now in their second week back at school. It’s amazing how quickly things slip back into routine and the break feels like so long ago. We had Christmas at home in Munich this year. Then it was off to Italy to celebrate the New Year with… Read More Winter Wanderings
I got to play tour guide over the school break. Grandma was here visiting for 2 weeks and we were all very excited. It can be hard balance between wanting to show her all the sights and everything Munich has to offer but also wanting to show her what our everyday life is like; basics… Read More Playing tour guide in Munich
I don’t really know where I’m going with this post as it is a question I have been turning over in my head since we got back from our trip to the States last week. It may end up a bit more wandering than usual. We had a great trip back, Christmas with the family… Read More Home
We are in the new apartment! This is our second week in the apartment and it is starting to feel like a home. Our actual furniture won’t arrive for a few more weeks. It is set to arrive in Germany on November 23rd or 24th but then we have to wait for it to clear… Read More Getting an Apartment in Munich

I was very glad they… Read More History

I don’t think we have ever spent a summer so close to home when there are so many gorgeous places to go spend the day within a 5 minutes radius. But… Read More Nearly There
Today I went shopping for a list of random things we needed. It seems like every few days I have a new list that I need to go out and shop for which is totally different for me because I’m not a shopper. Anyone who knows me well would know that I hate feeling like… Read More Wait, how much is that?
It’s been a week since we have landed and it feels like a lot has happened and at the same time there is so much more to do. Over the last week I have felt every emotion and vacillated between being overjoyed to be here in this charming city and horrified that we left gorgeous… Read More Willkommen zu Deutschland
Well, we are on the move again. We have had 2 years in England, 2 years in Australia, and now we are off for a few years in Germany. As always the decision wasn’t made overnight. There have been countless discussions on what location would be the best fit for our family, what job makes… Read More On The Road Again
