Things I Miss From Home

  • black beans
    ED 08-Jan: We found a can of black beans in the “international” isle of the grocery store in another town.  Stay tuned for details of what they’re like.
  • baking soda
  • carpeted stairs
  • availability of options for everything
  • oodles of family and friends mere seconds away
  • dry ingredient measuring cups (I forgot to ship US measurement ones)
  • my parent’s laundry sink for bathing babies
  • house plants
  • Schroeder and June

I’m sure there will be more as time goes on.

Family and friends are a given.  Obviously.

The Adventure Begins

Our Germany adventure began 2 weeks before our second baby, Little E, was born on August 5, 2011.  That’s when my husband, LOML, saw a posting for this position on his company intranet.  We never thought it would end up becoming real.  We didn’t actually expect to be moving to Europe by the end of the year.  But it did.

Hopefully this blog will be useful in a few ways: to get my thoughts out, to let our family and friends know what we’re up to being so far away, and as a journal of our life living abroad.

Join me, MomMom, my husband, LOML, our almost 2 year old, Big Ive, and the new baby, Little E.
