“Where are you from?” It seems like such a simple question, right? It just a question of geography. When you visit an unknown (or even a known) place, people will often ask you where you hail from. You probably don’t even think twice when you tell them. You probably grin with pride (or possibly disdain… Continue reading Where You’re From
This past weekend, we decided to hit up the city of Heidelberg. We’ve wanted to go here for a while now, but there has always been something that’s come up…usually it’s been weather related.

As I sit here in my stifling, hot apartment, I started thinking back to the past 14 years. It’s been quite a roller coaster ride. We’ve put over 35,000 miles under our feet and we’re still not done. We’ve been to 3 continents, lots of states and a couple of countries. Rather than just leave… Continue reading Hello world!
