We recently moved from Germany to Maryland but because the world (and the military) is such a small place we still stay in touch with many of our friends. They fly through our area or are already living within close traveling distance because they just recently moved as well. Making it not seem like we are really that far away from everyone.
Moving was hard we lived in Germany for eight years so it was very much our home. Anything that reminds me of it or my time spent there I cherish. When my friend Mareisa asked me to help with a few decorations and the cake at her gender reveal party in DC I was happy to oblige. Besides she was flying all the way from Germany with her husband so how I could I miss that.
