Surprising our Family with our Baby Announcement & Gender Reveal | Holidays 2017

While we were home from Germany over the holidays we surprised our family on Christmas morning with our baby announcement. Here is a little compilation video of their reactions! We also did a ‘gender reveal’ party on New Years Eve… which in the end.. was wrong! (The cake said boy, but we found out later we are having a GIRL!)

San Sebastian, Spain: Beautiful Beaches & Learning to Skateboard

In each new city we travel to, we attempt to 'do what the locals do'. Which meant eating pintxos in San Sebastian, but also attempting a new skill... skateboarding.  Lets just say I will not quit my day job.

While most people think of Tapas for Spanish traditional cuisine, in the Basque region of Northern Spain, Pintxos (pronounced peen-chos) are their claim to fame. 

Pintxos were traditionally a slice of baguette bread stacked with any type of food. To hold it in place, a cocktail stick or 'pintxo' was used. Now, Pintxos are open to much more than just that - and some are like little works of art.

We are PREGNANT! Having a baby in Germany vs the US

We have some news - we are pregnant!! Since we've announced the news, I've gotten quite a few questions about the differences of having a baby in Germany vs the US. As this is our first pregnancy, I don't have much to compare it to, but I've done my best to answer some of the questions!

24 Hours in Saint-Émilion, France

24 Hours in Saint-Émilion, France

After our stay in Le Croisic, we took our tiny little rental car and drove down to Saint-Émilion. It took just about 4 hours, which was the longest stretch during our week road trip through France & Spain. Saint-Émilion is just outside of Bordeaux, and some would say even more beautiful than Bordeaux! It is also a famed wine town known for its Grand Cru wine.

We actually only had less than 24 hours in this beautiful little town, as it was a quick stop on our way to Biarritz. So we tried to fit in as much as possible!
