Then and now – one year Germany

Things sure did change since we moved to Germany last summer. Not only things but we have also changed and grown this past year.  With the move, we have given up many conveniences and made plenty sacrifices but we would do it all over again in a heartbeat. One thing we wished we didn’t have to live without is having Butch with us permanently. Unfortunately, his job requires him to be in the US more than in Germany. But we are hopeful that our family will be complete again soon. Of course we also miss our friends from Cali & Texas dearly but are grateful for new friendships this past year. So here are the Mosbys then in the US and now in Germany:

  1. Hey Yasemin !!!

    Long time no speak !

    We miss you guys, but can see you have all settled into European life really well 🙂

    Tegan is interested in doing a blog herself, please can you email me with some pointers for her.

    love to you all xx

    • Hi Natalie
      Good to hear from you. It’s been too long. I’d love to give Tegan some pointers. Let me make a list and links and I’ll forward to you. What a great idea! She’ll enjoy it very much. Miss you guys.


        • Natalie,
          I found lots of quick videos on youtube that say everything I would have told you as well. Check out this one: superficialgirl and search under how to start a blog. Don’t let the name bother you. 🙂

          First decision is weather you are going to use a free blogging site or host your own blog on your registered blog name. I am hosting my own under wordpress. It took me a day or two to get through their details but it was worth it. They also have a quick tutorial about how to use their site. It is all based on pre existing templates so no need to be a pro.

          I can’t wait to see what your big girl comes up with. What an exciting endeavor.
