Welcome to our life!

Hi, I'm Allison! I'm a thirtysomething, freshly baked, stay-at-home mom. I'm originally from Connecticut, now living in Germany, hence the name of the blog. I live in southern Germany with my German husband and our baby boy. Life has turned out to be nothing I ever expected, and am so incredibly happy with it! We certainly do have a lot of laughs! I hope you will enjoy following our new experiences raising a little half American/ half German in a little German town.

New try with a new blog

I figured that FINALLY starting a blog would be a great idea. I have been keeping a blog on myspace, but then, you need to be a Myspace member to read that one. I also tried one with The Nest, but that was pretty unsucessful as well. This way, I figured everyone could see what we´re up to! Plus, I can post pictures here, and links, as opposed to making everyone sign up with Kodak just to view pics! 5 years is a mighty long time to have gone without a blog...

I guess I should start out by saying that Joern, Leo, and I are great. Life in Germany is fine. Today, we had a lot of snow. Okay, not in Neckartailfingen, but definately in the Swabian Alb, which is where we spent the day. They had about 6 inches of snow just today alone. This weather is not really normal for Germany at the end of March, but like CT, you never know!

I talked with a woman today about a job, which is always exciting! She runs an English speaking club here for adults, and is looking for someone to take on teaching kids ages 6-10 in an after school program. I loved her concept, especially her deisre to focus on spoken English, versus what you learn in school. It sounds really exciting, exept of course, I would only be working a few afternoons per week. She did say that she thinks with my experience I can get something much better. This sparked Joern and I to get cracking on the job hunt. I have to spend this weekend working on a CV, resumes, and putting together a portfolio. Maybe I can find something meaningful with pay!

Otherwise, things are fine. I am going to Ireland on April 9th for a week with one of my friends from my old job. We´re both incredibly excited!

Joern´s well. He still loves his job with SudSalz, and loves the fact that we have enough salt for the rest of our lives! He also loves the fact that he´s "in the know" at grocery stores all over our state!!!

Well, I guess that´s it for now. This blog should improve in the upcoming weeks. I just figured that if I waited for the blog page to be perfect, I might never get this off and running!
I miss all of you, and hope you´re all well!
