‘We all know them’

‘We all know them’

We all know them… People who can ruin a good meal merely by being themselves. From a young age I already had a problem with people who drink and eat loudly. I’ve spent over 20 years trying to get it under control and it's not really going as planned. (It’s as dramatic as it sounds). [...]

‘Meeting the Amish’

Everyone should have a bucket list! A number of experiences or achievements that you hope to have or accomplish during your lifetime. For years I have the urge to see and maybe even speak to an Amish person. For an unexplainable reason I am intrigued by their live style! Years ago while living in Texas, [...]

‘American Girl’

‘American Girl’

When my husband is off from soccer training and games we like to drive to Chicago and just walk around and explore the city. These last months were hard because of the intense cold and snow! Wisconsin and Illinois are not known for their warm winter months. But when we are there when it is [...]

Pray for TEXAS

Pray for TEXAS

"Hurricane Harvey was a huge, life-threatening storm. It struck the Central Texas coast (Corpus Christi) last Friday night and brought with it 130 mph winds and several feet of storm surge. Harvey's death toll rose to at least 40 this early Friday morning as floodwaters began to recede in flood-ravaged Houston. Officials fear that now [...]

Motherhood, WTF!

Motherhood, WTF!

You would think I have the luck that my daughter mingles 2 languages in her sentences, but for an unexplainable reason she always speaks perfectly clear English when we are in a public place. She can all of the sudden loudly pointing out some observation or repeats something I or someone else once told her. [...]

‘Stone Mountain’

‘Stone Mountain’

We live 15 minutes from a wonderful place called Stone Mountain. The first time we have been there was in May, but we have returned for many times more! There isn’t anything quite like it and because of that I am really impressed by it. The feeling reminds me of 20 years ago when I [...]

Daddy D’z BBQ JOYNT

After living two years in Texas and eating real BBQ food, it’s very hard to get satisfied by other “BBQ places”. But… I found Daddy D'z BBQ JOYNT, located in the heart of Atlanta. Honestly, it is maybe a bit questionable if you want to stop there… but we did anyway. "Never judge a book [...]
