Super Quick Catch-Up

Family and friends back home, this post is for you. We have not had as much time to talk with you guys as much as we would like so I put together a highlights reel of our lives from the past few months.  I want to catch you up on the gist of things before we get home for…

Just Breathe.

Sooooooooo I just got out of the hospital after having a pulmonary embolism (there really is no other way to start a post like this). I wish I could blame my lack of blogging on that but I was only there for three days. As this probably could have been prevented or addressed sooner, I want to share…

Tis the Season

Lordy be, children. I thought October/November was busy but December has showed no signs of slowing down. As I mentioned in my last post, we finally took a trip back home. We would have preferred to go home for Christmas but flights were 3x more expensive annnnnnd mama poor so we settled for Thanksgiving. The…

Short Trip to Sappy-Town

For most people, this day is usually one of somber remembrance and reverence about the events that happened in 2001. And it should be. However, personally, I prefer to recall the events of five years ago because on this day in 2010, two glorious things happened. For starters, it was the day that James Madison University…

A Brief Word on Fasching

I was hoping Jer would be able to write a post about Fasching – aka Carnival – because it had been going on since we arrived in Munich. But the man works and I don’t so you’re stuck with me for now. Fasching – as its called in Bavaria, Austria and a few other places in…

Willkommen in München!

The fat cat and I have officially made it to München! I woke up about an hour ago after getting about 12 hours of some much needed sleep. Before you judge, I’m entirely positive that I’ve never been so tired in my life as I was these past few weeks. With all the final packing…

Eisstockschießen (aka Adventures with Bavarian Curling)

*Every so often Jerry will regale us with tales of living in Munich in (mostly) his own words. Enjoy!* As Steph mentioned in the last post, I started my job a few weeks ago and so far, I love it. It’s such a great company and I really enjoy working with my team. One of…

Not So Bumpy After All…

So…I was wrong. I’m willing to admit it. I definitely blogged way too soon about our potential setback with the foreigners office being closed on January 2 (see the previous post here). We were both very frustrated that weekend for all the reasons I previously stated but turns out, we really had no need to…

Ringing in 2015 with a Bump in the Road

Happy 2015 (to all two of you reading this blog)! So far, our Munich move has been relatively smooth. Jerry made it to the city okay on Tuesday morning with all 200lbs of his luggage in tow (no really…I weighed it). His hotel is nice and central, which allows him to run around and get some…
