Deutschland

Hallo. Ich hei(s)e Amie. Ich komme aus Colorado. Ich wohne jetzt Stuttgart.

Hello. I am called Amie. I come from Colorado. I now live in Stuttgart.

Things are kind of up in the air. Life is still crazy, and I don't know when it's calming down. Bank accounts, car insurance, traveling with our bird...ahhhh! We should be flying out to Washington D.C. next weekend, but that's not for sure.

I'm looking forward to riding bikes in the German countryside. Hopefully we will have the chance to go to Paris for our second anniversary. I'm very good at picking up languages, but I've never been able to become fluent. German beer (bier) is supposed to be really good. Horses in Germany probably look the same but they have the premier dressage horses. I just can't wait.

Sad thing is, we had a going away party last night and it made me realize how much I really like the people we know. That sounds kinda rude considering, but it just made me nostalgic. I hope we can get to know some people in Germany quickly so we won't feel so alone. And most of our family and friends are planning trips so I'll be busy hosting.

It's going to be great.

It IS going to be great :)
It's exciting and sad to move to a new place, but once you settle in Germany you'll be fine!
Enjoy the trip, and I hope you get settled and located comfortably in no time!!

Oooh, I know all about international moves. :-) US to the UK six years ago. Feel free to get in touch if you want to chat -- making a big move can be difficult at times, but it's so worth it for the memories you'll make the experiences you'll have.
