Wow, I can’t believe my last post was in December. Really? What a neglectful blogger I have been. Sorry folks but life is speeding fast and I haven’t even been able to sit down and catch my breath until now. Here is a recap: Christmas – We had a nice quiet Christmas at home, opening… Continue reading Bienvenue en Belgique
30 days of vacation – when we extended in Spain for another year and they thanked us with a paid 30 days of vacation. Not a bad deal. We’ll take it! Tripp and I flew home to PA a week ahead of Joe so we could spend some extra time with family, namely my brother… Continue reading State College
Some days there was a line but we didn’t care. She would have a half-order of pecan pancakes and I would have silver dollar pancakes or a mushroom and cheddar omelet. The home fries were always the same – perfect – deliciously crispy and smothered in greasy oil and minced onions. We would sit for… Continue reading It Wasn’t Just Breakfast

Until one day, Prince David stumbled into her family’s kingdom,… Continue reading Happily Ever After
Tripp and I just got back from a trip to the U.S. It was Tripp’s first time in the States and his first long plane rides. Joe couldn’t come with us this trip because of work and he’ll be accompanying us on another trip to the States in late July. We went home to see… Continue reading Tripp’s First Trip To the U.S.

Joe always says that the way you celebrate New Year’s Eve is how your year will play out. We rang in 2008 with great friends in Korea and we’ve been so blessed when… Continue reading 2008 – Year In Review
I finished up my month in the States with a week in NYC. I haven’t been there for more than a day since I left 5 years ago to move to Florida with Joe and I wanted to wander around the city, meet friends for lunch and shop. One my first day I had to… Continue reading One Week in the Big Apple
Last week the students came flooding back to State College. Within 48 hours our town doubles in size, swelling with cars and pedestrians its streets are not designed for. Plastic rolling storage carts, cheap beige rugs, cork boards and junk food are purchased. Bright eyed frat boy wannabes whiz through Wal-Mart with their big-haired mamas… Continue reading Penn State – Welcome Back!
Joe’s been in Germany for a class for the past 3 weeks and while he was away I decided to trek across the Atlantic for some quality time with my friends and family. I haven’t been back to my hometown of State College, PA for almost 2 years (go PSU) so I was very excited… Continue reading Back home in the US of A!
I’m not ashamed to be called a “Daddy’s Girl.” As the first born and the only girl, it was inevitable I would be stuck with that title and it suits me just fine. Many men father children but not all of them are “Dads.” My father was not one of those men – he was… Continue reading Happy Father’s Day
