… a little bit of this, that and a lot more



I am sad, I am happy. My stomach’s in a knot. I’m confused. *jah, neh?*




To my Husband


You are sacrificing so much for me. For us.


I am grateful. I am overwhelmed.


I’ve said it before, and you didn’t believe me then. So I’ll say it again. Over and over. Until you do.


You are one in a mil. And I don’t mean to be corny.


It takes a man to sacrifice what you have – your promising career – so I may pursue mine. I admire and respect you immensely. And I am not alone.


I’m sure it’s not always going to be moonshine & roses. We will probably have more downs than ups. But if we continue to love and respect each other, constantly reminding ourselves why we – you, me and our boys – sacrificed so much to go where we’re going, to pursue an opportunity in a lifetime, we will make it.


I know I’ll be grumpy. I know I’ll be bitchy and critical. But I ask you to forgive me now. And I’m not saying I’ll just shoot my mouth off. I’ll try to be more sensitive to your feelings and moods. I’ll set a daily reminder on my calendar, just to be sure…


I cannot imagine what you are going through today, hun. I really feel for you. Thinking of you.


Did I say I was grateful? I truly am.


*lifts glass*


To you. To us.






I am very emotional today. Boo resigned last month in anticipation of our move to Germany. It’s his last day today. 

Have a fabulous weekend


PS: Oh, and I sold my car yesterday, sommer handed the keys to the dealer. No wonder…. 😉
