You're a Good Man...

Charlie Brown!
Yesterday was a good day. Rob had the day off and made me breakfast before I went to work. (I just love cheesy eggs!) Later we finally got our new GPS up and running- still trying to figure it out of course. Then we went out to dinner at a new place and went to see "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" at Heidelberg's Roadside Theater. It was a cute play with only 6 actors. Then it was home and to bed for us. All in all a nice little date night. Can't wait until next year- they are having some fun plays and special activities for the theater's 50th anniversary. Well... I am off to get the place spic and span for friends coming over later tonight.

Eyelashes & Kisses

A couple of weeks ago I posted about how it had been 10 years since Rob first told me he loved me... well yesterday was 10 years since we had our first kiss.
We had talked about it plenty and I told him flat out that I wanted him to kiss me and not me kiss him first.. had I know it would take over 2 years from when we met for him to lay one on me I might not have said that. But it was well worth the wait and now, a decade later I remember it for the sweet moment it was.
Even with all the talk of kissing we did leading up to the big moment Rob still was nervious to actually kiss me. We were at a nearby park enjoying the sunny day when he said I had an eyelash he needed me to close my eyes for so he could brush it away- next thing I know his soft lips were on mine. Even now we sometimes joking say "oh, I think you have an eyelash loose..." when really we simply want a kiss.

A Plug

Yup, this is a plug for my brand new blog. I created one to show things that I am selling. It doesn't hurt to have a little looksy, does it? Have fun!

My Mom

Mother's Day: It is simply not possible to create a post that attempts to put into words all that my mom means to me. She is my mom. She is my best friend. Sure I share her blood, her hair, her eyes, and other features... but better than all this we share a likeness of spirit- and that is what makes this mother-daughter bond something truly special.

Thank you mom. I owe so much of who I am today because you are my mother. I love you.

2 Years of German Dust

Today makes two years since we moved to Germany. We celebrated by enjoying the wonderful sunshine we have been having and went out to lunch and did some shopping. Then we dusted --and dusted some more *cough, cough*-- and got some organizing done (oh, it feels so good to get chores done!)
Today also marks the half-way mark of our time here. We still have 2 more years to enjoy Germany and travel Europe (unless we, hopefully, are accepted to flight school sometime next year and need to move back stateside early for that) .
So, that also means our family and friends only a year or two to plan that trip to come visit!

Rob's 28th & a Decade of "I Love You"

Today was Rob's 28th birthday. It was a mellower one than his last couple have been. (A week of sightseeing in Colorado, swinging by a single rope over Royal Gorge, and horse riding for his 26th, and a month in Scotland and Ireland with a promotion for his 27th.) -- Rob just read over my shoulder and said I was gloating, but when it's about my man, and- say- not me, it isn't technically gloating.-- Today we went to lunch at Chili's and visited some gardens nearby since it was a nice, sunny 77*.
Now you look and wonder what the second part of the title today means: "A Decade of 'I Love You'." Well, it was in a park 10 years ago today on Rob's 18th birthday that he first told me he loved me. Not wanting to say I loved him back simply because he had said it-- I wanted to really mean it-- he ended up waiting 5 months for me to finally muster up the nerve to say those three magical words to him. A full ten years later, again in a park together, how long did it take me to tell my wonderful husband I loved him, too? about .5 seconds-- things only get better with time, right? Here are some pics from the day, no captions... simply enjoy.
