I've been feeling a bit like Alice in Wonderland recently.

As though I've fallen down a rabbit hole and things are passing by me very quickly. I'm also quite sure to see and experience some rather fantastical things once I land.


We're moving... fairly soon (at least Josh is). He's been accepted to the program for flight nursing and must report to his new base by July 15.

His new base being Ramstein AFB in Germany.

Saturated Blossoms

I'm excited, most certainly, but I'm not entirely sure what we're getting into. I feel as though I have all the time in the world (I won't be permanently joining him until early October), yet at the same time it's as though I just got to DC and I'm not quite sure where the time is going.

I need to learn German. In between packing. And seeing all the places we were supposed to see while stationed in the national capital region. And doing all the things that I want to do in the district. And working. And job hunting. And all of the million other things that are going into this.

Wonderland II

I'm absolutely positive that I am simply seeing a curve in the road of this rather extraordinary adventure that I find myself on. So it's definitely good.

Simply a little like Wonderland.

Urban S'Mores

Urban S'More, The Making Of

Sometimes I have cravings for random things... generally desserts. The other night, all I wanted was a s'more. 

One graham cracker, some Hershey's mini morsels, a handful of baby marshmallows and a couple minutes under the broiler later... I had a lovely urban s'more. It lacked that special camp fire flavor... but it definitely hit the spot.

The next day, I made one with Nutella instead of mini chips. I will never be able to go back to just Hershey's again.
