Hello...It's been a long time overdue.

It has been ages....My entire life has changed drastically in the past couple of years. I've had my hands full and I dropped out of blogging world to attend to that thing little thing called life. I happen to stumble across a few things while going through boxes that reminded me of this ole blog. I figured I'd log on for fun and noticed that some of you are still blogging. It was truly wonderful to catch up on you and how much your lives have changed as well. It sort of gave me the itch to start blogging once again. I hope that y'all will follow along.

So much has happened since my last post. My husband graduated from law school. Yes, I'm officially married to an attorney. He loves working in law and has more than he can handle in cases. He still works in health care compliance but his business has expanded to both coasts. There is nothing more rewarding than to see your husband accomplish his goals and actually find joy in his career.

Last summer, we spent some time in Berlin, Germany. I have pictures from Germany but I wanted to share these of Switzerland first. We were blessed enough to have the opportunity to fly down to Switzerland and stay with friends. I had met this friend through this exact blog and I couldn't even begin to tell you how much I admire this woman. She is truly a wonderful person and to host my husband and myself, it was quite special. She has a lovely family and we are grateful we had the opportunity to meet them in person. This will always remain one of the highlights of last summer.

The top three pictures are of Schaffhausen

Berne, Switzerland 

After returning from Europe, I became fascinated with my German heritage. However, after researching, I found that only one side of my family was German but the other were all Swiss!!! They actually resided in Bern. Having learned that information on my ancestry only made my memories of Switzerland even more special. The Swiss people are amazing and I truly can't say enough good things about this country. I can't wait to return for another visit.

This is my great, great, grandparents. My great grandfather is the second from right. All Swiss.

Hi Gigi,
So nice to receive your comment! I was actually just thinking of you recently and wondering how you were. It is late here, but my husband got called in so I'm just laying in bed surfing social media. Are you on Instagram?
I am having a great summer hanging out with my daughter & recently started taking tennis lessons! Are you still playing?

Hi Gail,
Yes, I'm on Instagram under my name. I'm doing great. We just relocated back to Texas about 3 weeks ago. Yes, I'm still playing tennis. I played on a ladies league back in Mississippi and I'm currently looking for a league here in Texas. I've also started Pilates about a year ago. I love it!!! Really helps with my tennis game. What is your user name for Instagram and I'll start following you. So great to hear from you. Little P. is absolutely gorgeous. I saw your post from NYC.

Hi Ruth,
We are doing great! Just been super busy. Hubby doubled up on his studies and graduated early from law school. He expanded his business during school so we've been traveling a lot this past year. We just relocated back to Texas. I thought about you the other day as well. We are heading to Memphis next month for a wedding. How are you?
