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.

Tropical Dreamin'

I can't believe it's actually sunny here today! We have had such a miserable run with weather lately, its gotten me dreaming of far-away, sunny locales. I have decided to start putting money away now, just a little each month, as a surprise for Joern. Our 10th anniversary is only 3 years from now, and I would love to surprise him with a special trip, to somewhere other than Mallorca, no matter how much we both love it there.
Here are some of my dreamy ideas...
I have never been to Mexico, but would absolutely love the opportunity to go there. Maybe Cancun? I have found some lovely pictures, and think that it would be really cool.
Of course, maybe a small island in the Caribbean would be great too. I am spending lots of time dreaming away on TripAdvisor.com, and have narrowed down my choice places to the US Virgin Islands or St. Barts.

Since we didn't have a big wedding, nor an all - out huge honeymoon, I feel like this would not be out of line for a 10th anniversary celebration.

Then again, it depends on what else is going on in our lives at the time. I also have a babymoon location planned, although I am nowhere near pregnant yet :) I will keep that location secret though, but will say that it will be in Europe.

This is all at the dreaming stage right now. But, I do know that the next three years will fly by really quickly. And of course, I am hoping that 2011 will be a much better year than 2008 is turning out to be :)
