2022 is the Year of the Creative Outlet

I want to use this camera and not rely on my cell-phone, so I created a #365photoproject on Instagram. My goal this year is to take one picture a day with my camera and then once a week, I want to write a blog about those photos and share with the world.

All Things Together

We've been here in Germany for three weeks. We're still waiting for our household goods. We received Douglas' truck. YAY!!!!! We are very very thankful for that. I've done a lot of walking. I've used my meager German a lot. I was even told by a lady who worked in the deli at the local... Continue Reading →

Hotel Living

We made it!!!! After over 5 weeks of prepping, packing and painting, we are in the hotel. We've exploded and don't allow the cleaning people in at all because our stuff is literally EVERYWHERE!!!

Stumbling into 2021

I cannot believe that it tomorrow will be the beginning of 2021. It seems like the year has flown by but it was also the year of pure chaos. It was the year where I felt like I was stumbling and slipping the entire year. I know that I had so many goals for 2020,... Continue Reading →

When Life is a Mess

It's been a "why?" week at our house. Why does God allow this or that? Why is God silent when we desire more than anything to hear from him? So that is that. That's where we are. I have no answers. I can only wait. Well, sometimes my life just don't make sense at all... Continue Reading →
