  1. Okay, I seriously just snorted coffee out of my nose just looking at your banner photo…LOL. I grew up in Germany, so I know what you’re saying. Since I grew up there, and am half German, I’m sure my husband would also understand and appreciate what you’re going for here. K, now I have to go through more of your posts…
