This trip was unique – it wasn’t really “vacation” because we had to sleep in seperate places, go to doctor’s appointments and through the actual procedure itself, and weren’t really in a “touristy” area, but we were able to spend time together in a country that was new to us, cook a lot of our own meals, and work out almost daily.
How incredible this opportunity was to travel out here really hit me my third day in Germany. I was driving back to my apartment after dropping Jamie off at his hospital barracks, and on the radio I hear “It’s 9 o’clock in Central Europe” in this strong voice, and everything just hit me like a ton of bricks. How awesome is all of this right now? I’m in EUROPE?! WHAT?! I’ve always dreamed of visiting Europe? And I’m driving around in my rental car? And spending time unexpectedly with Jamie? Holy smokes.
All-in-all, it was an amazing trip with an amazing man.
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
