Bringing back the fluff…

We were doomed. We had finally secured an apartment in Hannover and then we realized- there were no dryer hook-ups in our new abode. To us, this meant no more hot towels, no more quick loads of laundry. Germany had taken over every aspect of our household life, including routine chores. After the initial disappointment […]

Don’t be deceived by his cuteness…
