New Bike, New Job !

Since this is supposed to be a blog about our life here in The Netherlands, and everything is official now, I think it’s only fitting that I take a moment to acknowledge a pretty major change in my day-to-day life here in Groningen. I am officially on bike #4. My poor poor ‘grandma bike’ –Continue reading “New Bike, New Job !”

Good Times Happen For Those Who Visit

First, I’d like to apologize to my Auntie R for my blog posting slackness. My only excuse is that the weather has been perfect. Two weekends ago (already?!), Shane and I were thrilled to host 2 new visitors, my Aunt Rebecca and her friend, Marlee! These two were at the end of ~2 week trip throughContinue reading “Good Times Happen For Those Who Visit”

Groningen Round-Up

It’s been a while, and Meatball is disappointed in us for not updating the blog lately. I mean look at her. Judging us. Not cool cat. Since the wedding, we’ve taken a little travel hiatus, so I thought I would do a round-up of the things that have been going on here in Groningen. First.Continue reading “Groningen Round-Up”

Groningen, Paris, & Amsterdam Too !

Guess who came to visit? If you guessed Shane’s family, then you guessed Wright! My almost in-laws and nephew (6 more weeks! – not that anyone is counting) made the trek from southwest Virginia to spend 10 days in Europe with Shane, Meatball and me. Two planes and a train ride later put them hereContinue reading “Groningen, Paris, & Amsterdam Too !”

Spring has Sprung !

I would just like to start by saying {please dont let me jinx it!} we’re heading for spring folks! Proof you say? I took this picture at 7:15pm. It’s daylight, there is actual visible blue sky, and the wind isn’t blowing (you’ll just have to trust me on that last part). That’s spring in theContinue reading “Spring has Sprung !”

The Final Countdown!

It’s official! In less than a month we’ll be making our way home for the holidays! To kick it off, this weekend was a weekend of celebrations! Shane turned 30, Sinterklaas arrived, and we took a little stroll through the Groningen countryside. So, the last part really isn’t a celebration but we did it, andContinue reading “The Final Countdown!”

Our Fall, In Review

Hey there friendly readers! I know, we’ve kept you waiting in anticipation for far too long. I apologize. (hah) Oh, and no. That picture of the beautiful tree isn’t here. I stole it from Sis because sadly enough I didn’t get any fall foliage pictures this year. Actually, this brings me to the first itemContinue reading “Our Fall, In Review”
