Your German heart is beautiful, tj. I'll be thinking of you and praying for safe travels. It is hard to leave a place that has had so much meaning to you, but I'm hoping that being back in the US will open some new and exciting opportunities for you.


Good luck and hope you have a good and safe journey back. Love your German heart. I hope you treasure it!


Thinking 'smooth move' thoughts for you - and hopeful that settling in here will find you surrounded by new & wonderful neighbors :-)

Thinking of you my friend...what an experience to be immersed into a new country and community, they'll miss you as much as you're already missing them. Wishing you safe journey, drop me your new address when you get a chance.
Love to you sister,
Jenny ♥

The heart really is beautiful. Looking forward to seeing the American one.

Sounds like you made some truly wonderful neighbors while here. But with your incredible heart, I'm sure you'll find plenty of great new neighbors in your new home as well.

All the best for your journey!


such a blessing to experience TRUE community. So glad my friend that you have made these lifelong ties.


Tari! All the best to you! It is lovely that you've had such a great time there and met wonderful friends. Be safe and I look forward to hearing about your continuing adventure. You are really a marvel, getting so much done. Amazing how much we can get done when we don't sit and watch Dark Shadows on DVD all day...




Beautiful German heart, TJ! I hope that you will find a similar sense of community in your new/old homeland. What a treasure to bring with you all the memories of what you have enjoyed in Germany. Best wishes for a smooth move!

There's no pretzel and no Edelweiss?!?!?! and your German heart is still beautiful. You amaze me - beautiful art produced during a stressful move. All the best to you and your family. I'll be thinking of you.


Thanks everybody for the sweet words! You guys are the greatest. Today I'm looking around at every surface that's covered in all the "little stuff" that's left over. I'm wondering how it's all going to fit into suitcases!
Time to get by booty cracking!

That is a wonderful german heart. Can't wait to see the american version. Crossing my fingers for a smooth move. Auf Wiedersehen on the other side.



So sorry to see you move to the other side of the world! Hope you have a good trip and that all your furniture and art supplies arrive safely in the US.

Hallo Tari. Ich bin so traurig..
Ich wünsche euch eine sichere Reise, einen guten Start in euer neues Leben und alles erdenklich Gute für dich und deine Männer! Haltet durch, denn die stressige Zeit ist ja noch nicht vorbei. Tschakaaaaa, ihr schafft das! DANKE FUER ALLES!
With tears in my eyes: good bye - oder besser: See you!
"may the road rise up to meet you
May the Wind Be always at your back..."

P.s.: ich werde ab und zu mal die blumen vor "eurem" haus giessen ;))

Best luck with your move TJ! Wonderfulness is waiting for you on the other side of the ocean. No matter where you live, you will find you are forever changed by your experience in Germany and you carry that with you wherever you go. Big hugs. When you think it's too crazy, just drop me a note. I'll be here!! Auf wiedersehen! :)
