    Hi Susi! Always fun to learn new things about you 🙂
    I will have to remember your book recommendations for future reads !

    • Susi July 13, 2013 at 10:52 pm

      These are some really great reads. Hope you enjoy them if you read them.

    I agree with Kerry – I like these kind of memes. Having been here from so young, I’m a little surprised you still use German in your everyday. But it’s good! Do you kids speak German?

      There are a lot of little things we say in German. My kinds probably will never say “hot” but “heiss”. 🙂 I’m pretty lax with speaking German to them but they do know a little.

    I do hope you make it back to Germany!
    So, I take it that you’re a Twilight fan? 🙂

      Yeah, you could say I’m a bit of a Twilight fan. 🙂

  • Kerstin @ Auer Life July 15, 2013 at 12:46 am

    If you ever make it to the Pacific Northwest we’ll have to meet!
    I also want to travel across the country in an RV, but to be honest – Germany is not on my list at all.

    Man, Dirty Dancing never gets old, right? So great.

    And I love that you can read books in 2 languages. I need to become bi-lingual. You inspire me to pick up French again… 🙂

      Elaine, I wish I had kept up with my French better. We have a little girl at camp now that’s from France and she doesn’t speak a word of English. I was able to talk to her a little bit.
      But it makes me want to polish it up again. Such a beautiful language.

    I keep thinking I want to watch the Silver Linings Playbook movie. Have you seen it?
