We were pretty steadily busy starting in November with the Canary Islands, then my brother visiting for 10 days, Christmas, my trip back to the US for 3 weeks, and then Berlin at the end of January. Ever since though, we've been laying low and its been nice. Jason and I have had very few stretches since we met almost 8 years ago where we're able to get into a routine. We're not quite in one yet here, but there was a short time in Kuwait and Colorado where we did and maybe it'll happen soon here.
It just feels good to occasionally have some down time where you get into a groove and allow yourself to mentally catch up with life. We don't have much planned over the next 10 weeks as we wait for the little one to arrive, so I plan to enjoy it as much as I can.
Germany is very different from the US in so many ways, but not in the stark ways that Kuwait was. You could have a completely ordinary day in Kuwait and it could involve the most random occurrences that made for entertaining posts. Here its not quite that eventful, so I struggle sometimes to come up with unique things to share, so this tends to be more of a glimpse into our world vs. a lesson living in Germany.
This year is going to be a full one. Starting with the baby, we'll have non-stop company from the end of April through mid-July. Then we head to Italy with family towards the end of July. At the beginning of September we'll head back to the States for a wedding and to see family and friends, and then it'll soon be Fall and the holidays again! Not to mention we'll have a little mini-me strapped to our side throughout all this which will make it all the more interesting.
Anyways, enough rambling. I hope you enjoy my little day to day posts, as ordinary as they may be sometimes :)
