Flashback Friday: Hannover Edition- Marktkirche

Marktkirche, or “Market Church” is one of the most well know sights in Hannover. This Lutheran church, build in a Gothic style, was constructed in the 14th century in order to replace St. George’s Church (which was built in the early 1100’s) which stood in the same location. The foundation of the Market Church is […]

Fasten your seat belts because we are traveling almost 200 years back in time today! Today marks the first post of my First Friday Flashback mini-series on Hannover. We will begin our series by looking at the history of a popular memorial in the city. Ready? Let’s go… The dedication took place on Monday June […]

Flashback Friday #18: A Yellow Room

Sometime around 1989 or 1990 (I can’t recall the exact date), I was put on the Behnke* house painting team and was given a special assignment. Our mission, which we chose to accept, was to transform white into yellow. It was going to be a messy job, but we were determined to get the task […]

Flashback Friday #17: Ireland, April 2005

This is a story from my trip to Ireland in April of 2005. My mother and her friend, Christa, joined Drew and I for a guided bus tour in order to get a taste of the country. Before we begin, I should warn you: this isn’t what you think it is. This isn’t the story […]

Flashback Friday #16: Childhood Pets

Before Maxwell there were two other special dogs in my life, “Chevis” and “Lady”. They were my childhood pets; and, at times, my best friends and closest companions. They slept on my bed, put up with me dressing them up, and always listened when I needed someone to talk to. Dogs have a way, unlike […]

Flashback Friday #15: Our Saturn

Then: August 6th, 2005 We drove it home a few days after we arrived back in the US from our year in France. It was pretty much the perfect car for us in every way, although I absolutely hated it at first. Why? Well, because- it was RED! Bright, Shiny, See-Your-Reflection-in-it, Lipstick Red. It was […]

Flashback Friday* #14: Vegas, July 2006

*In effort to share more details with you about our adventure in moving to Germany, I have decided to change the format of Flashback Fridays a little bit. From now on, Flashback Fridays will only be posted on the first Friday of every month. Don’t worry- I will still be here each Friday (I am […]

Flashback Friday #13- My Fairytale, Memorial Day Weekend, 2004

6 years ago tomorrow (May 29th) Drew and I were married. I can remember it like it was yesterday. From the moment I woke up I was filled with excitement. After 3 years of dating followed by a 19 month engagement- my wedding day was finally here! The entire morning butterflies raced around in my […]

Flashback Friday #12: Dressing Up

You are already aware of my somewhat strange affection for cozy pink socks, but did you know that I am also infatuated with dressing up? It’s true. It’s been that way ever since I was a little kid and it has continued through the present. It’s funny how, with the help of your mother’s shoes… […]
