Thanksgiving, Friendship+Skiing the Alps

I met Erin in 2012 while we were learning all about ARDS, CKD, MODS, sepsis, “The Sugas” and may other intensive care things we were cramming into our brains at the time. She was the quiet, (almost) front row sitter and I was the notorious back row sitter that talked far too much. #somethingsneverchange A […]

Amsterdam, Netherlands: Windmills, Waffles+Rainy Days

Birthdays and Princess Castles: Neuschwanstein

I’ve wanted to visit the Neuschwanstein Castle since I first moved to Germany. It reminded me of all the princess castles we watched in movies growing up. It looked so perfect in photographs and I wanted so badly for it to be that beautiful in person. Unfortunately, King Ludwig II died before it was completely […]

Octoberfest: Beers with the best of friends. Ramstein, Germany

Octoberfest is one of our favorite times of the year in Germany. Honestly we really enjoy the locals singing and dancing on tables, the dressing up in Dirndel’s and Lederhosen… and of course the liters of Beer!  I had to include the picture of Krissy drinking a bud light before we left home #America haha  […]
