My beautiful boy turned six this week.  Six.  It is bittersweet for me because I know he is my last, my youngest, my baby and he’s already heading into big boy territory.  His wingman, Christian, also had a very big birthday and turned 21.  How?  How did this happen?  Why are my boys so big? […]

  It has been craziness over here.  Craziness that finally ended around midnight last night when we got home from our last night at fest (Frühlingsfest).  We had a big change-of-command here at the Stuttgart Garrison. That requires the official pomp & circumstance ceremonies, as well as the unofficial meet & greets.  I’ve smiled, made […]

Spring in Mom’s Garden with a free cluster

by Rebecca 14 May 2013

Do you garden?  I can’t help but smile when I read Jenn’s posts about planting and flowers and kiwi vines.  Years ago that was me, but now we are going in the opposite direction.  Instead of planting, my husband and I are impatiently awaiting the weekend when we can pull our shrubs OUT and sod […]

Tess is in the middle of her fahrrad überprüfen (literally to check bike), however, it turns out, there is an awful lot that goes with this.  I apologize to my German friends if I’m not completely clear in my understanding, while my German is good, my German-legal is abysmal. And Tess translating German-legal for me is […]

I think it’s fair to say that we all have different work methods.  One of the great things about Photoshop is that there are multiple ways to accomplish the same goal.   Adobe has even made it easy for us to do so by allowing us to set personal Preferences. If you have not yet visited […]
