Lazy post

Lots of things happening behind the blog these days, and I have already written about some of them but have yet to press the "publish" button on those posts. But I will. Eventually.

SPEAKING OF THE BLOG, some changes are coming soon that I am very excited about. I'm getting attached to this blogging thing and I feel like it needs to be a space that is more reflective of "me". So, some redesign is happening.

Not much else to say right now, so I leave with you this.

One of my new favorite bloggers just posted a wonderful list about pros and cons of living in Germany. I'm sharing the link here because YES to everything she said.

"You basically need a smart car to live here. Those things can park anywhere." YES

"I always inevitably run out of something or need to go to the store when it's closed. Always. This is when my little expat heart starts longing for Target and, dare I say it, Walmart." 
YES...but I think missing Walmart is taking it a little far. She's been here longer than I have though, so maybe that's the next stage.

"Germany does Christmas like no other. [...]There are hundreds of Christmas Markets that start popping up all of Germany the second the first chill of December starts to roll around. Each market is uniquely themed, but they all have treats like Gl├╝hwein, twinkling lights, & holiday handicrafts in common. Christmas in Germany is such a magical time of year!"
YES. It's the ONLY reason to look forward to winter.

I'd like to add one con to her list. The fact that it's APRIL and we're still living with below freezing temperatures. There's not even buds on the trees. Spring, where are you?
