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.

The First Family

This morning, I woke up and said to Jörn, "Now I know how people felt about President Kennedy." I love the Obamas! I enjoyed so much watching President Obama and his wife Michelle yesterday. They seem so real, so much like your next door neighbors. Michelle has taken a real step away from the traditional "first lady look," and has instead adopted a style that is much like an average American woman of today.

Of course, I must also mention Malia and Sasha, the two most adorable little girls! I absolutely love them! It does help that they were wearing JCrew, the coolest store ever. But more importantly, they are real kids. They were so cute at the inauguration. I was so entertained by Malia and her picture taking. She was taking pictures of Aretha Franklin with her little blue camera. Then when her father stook up, she started taking pictures of him too! This little girl who can ask anything from anyone, including pictures, sat there like any other kid taking pictures with her digital camera! Even funnier followed the inauguration speech when Vice President Biden handed the camera back to Malia! It just seems so amazing to hand your camera to the Vice President of the US and ask him to take a picture for you at the presidental inauguration! I loved it!!

I feel a bit like a giddy school-girl. I can't wait to see more photos of this incredible First Family!
