One year ago {today}...

We were nervous.
We were excited.
We were anxious.
We were homeless.
We were resting from our month-long road trip across the United States. Best. month. of. our. lives.
We were saving lots of money. (and now we have given it all to live in a wonderful house)
We were getting our fill of all things Mexican food.
We were boarding a plane...
...because we were moving to Germany! To live in this house:
Eat this food (okay, and about a thousand pounds of sausage):
Explore this gorgeous land and other countries around it... {The Netherlands, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Czech Republic, Romania, Hungary, Luxembourg, Austria, Slovakia, Switzerland} and see beautiful places like this:
and we can't forget about the awesome desserts...ah, how I miss that real Belgian waffle.
But now... our life is equally enriched... as we:

Bought our first home
Celebrated two years of marriage
Met some wonderful new friends we're so thankful to have
Stripped three rooms of wallpaper
Experienced a Midwest summer

...and the most exciting of all... 

Awaiting the birth of our son who we're so honored to parent.
Life is good. God is good great.
