Well Hello Excitement! I’ve Missed You!
Hey there my Lovelies!
You didn’t keel over from the shock of seeing a post from me, did you?
Ah, you know, my needles have been quiet while I write books and my nesting inspiration has been severely suppressed as I bide my time until we leave this tiny townhouse.
I didn’t feel like I had anything exciting to share. Yes, Mr. Excitement hasn’t visited our house in like forever. That elusive cheer-maker paid us a visit a few weeks ago, though.
Hubs works for the military so we knew a job transfer to Germany was a possibility, but I always thought it was a long shot … like winning the lottery long shot.
Turns out it isn’t such a long shot after all. It turns out that the odds are very, very, VERY good!
To say I’m excited is an understatement. I should record my audible squeal as I write this and upload it just so you’d understand. I would love to move to Germany!
My dad was in the U.S. Army, my mom is German, I was born in Germany and I spent many years there including those all important preteen/early teen years. We left Germany for the last time when I was 13 going on 14. It was a rough move for me, a rough age to leave friends, right?
Memories of good times in Germany contribute to my excitement, I’m sure.
To give you an idea of how long it’s been, the Iron Curtain was still up when we left. I have long lost family in what was East Germany. I’d love to see where my mother grew up and what was the family homestead before World War II.
And there’s the whole living in Europe as an adult thing.
Here’s what I’ve been dreaming of:
- Munich flea market
- Paris flea market
- Brussels flea market
- Berlin flea market
- Lyon flea market
- Euro-antiques big and small
- a yarns of Scandinavia tour
- a Cognac tour through France
- a Mosel wine tour through Germany
- and, yeah, a Rhine wine tour through Germany
- a chocolate tour through Belgium
- maybe a cheese tour of Switzerland
Vintiques, yarn, food and drink. LOL.
My imagination has run wild. My hopes are sky high.
Here’s hoping that Mr. Excitement sticks around to make it all pan out, huh? In the meantime, I’ll keep dreaming
