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.

A car ride on a snowy day
Last week, we went to lunch with Joern's parents. We went to a restaurant in Kappishäusern, which is about a 20 minute ride from here. Kappishäusern is one of my favorite little towns around here, because the view is incredible.
Since we took separate cars, Joern and I were able to take the scenic route home. It was fantastic because everything was all snowy and beautiful. As we were riding along, I was looking at the scenery and noticed a furry large animal in the fields behind the trees. Being the nosy people that we are, Joern decided to turn around and check out what indeed was behind the trees. We drove down a little farm path, and then, came upon these delightfully adorable cows:
I went home and researched, it turns out they are Scottish Highland cattle. They are increasing in popularity because they are quite hardy, and can eat certain grasses that are intolerable to other cows. Of course, we just enjoyed them because they are really quite adorable.
