I have been living in Frankfurt for two and half years now and still struggle to call it home. After finally leaving my home town that I could not wait to flee as a teenager, I know that I want to go back. Funny how life works. For now I am enjoying life in Germany. If I am really honest though- many times I find myself day dreaming about what I will do when we move back (SO many ideas), but then I pull myself back to the present, to the moment.
I was very lucky to go home for a visit this winter (YAY!). I needed to see my family and friends and SNOW! Yes, Michiganders I know you are sick of hearing about snow, seeing it, shoveling it, cursing it, driving in it - not mention the polar vortex. But I was happy to see it. Hannah was mesmerized. And I have to teach my girl that she really is a Michigan girl at heart - sledding, snowball fights, snow angels, snowmen, all of it. However, she was reluctant to be in it, but happy to watch it from the window; watch Papa plow, watch Mom shovel and see Nanny's car get covered with fluffy flakes.
Thank you for having us Michigan :)
Thank you Old Man Winter for allowing safe travels and on time flights.
