My beautiful sister, Annelore, was here.  A quick whirlwind tour, way too short, completely without my adorable niece & nephew, but here.  So, so here. Annelore had a work conference in Stuttgart, not even Stuttgart, in Böblingen, halfway between us & Stuttgart!  She came bursting in on Thanksgiving (I knew she was coming of course) […]

Don’t scroll down if you are easily frightened or not a Halloween fan.  We have only one picture from our big Halloween party last Saturday, taken by little Dane, and it’s a doozy! We love Halloween.  We love dressing up, trick-or-treating, scary movie marathons,  and just being goofy one night a year. This year friends […]

Running theStudio is a full-time job, sometimes it’s more than a full-time job.  This week was one of those weeks.  I’m working at hard to bring some new products your way, add a little more to the store for your scrapping needs.  New always equals head-banging for me.  It also means my kids get left […]

There are times when I ditch the camera and just let loose & have a good time.  Wednesday night was one of those times.  At the last minute we decide to head over to post & watch the 4th of July fireworks.  I normally skip these things because 1) post is pretty far from home; […]

Every muscle in my body hurts.  Dave put on an “Amazing Race” event for his soldiers.  Since I’m the Amazing Race fan in our house, I volunteered to help.  This week my volunteer hours turned into a full-time job! Coming up with stops wasn’t hard, typing up clues was a little harder, running the race […]

Twenty-two years ago I missed my own college graduation, and instead had a beautiful, amazing, perfect little boy.  He changed my life forever.  Last Saturday my little boy graduated college.  The first in our family to do so.  I cannot describe the enormous pride, love, emotion pouring out of my body.  I have tears just […]
