When Glen and I were first married, he was in the army and we lived in Germany for 2 years. What a beautiful country with such friendly people. I wanted to be able to put some of our pictures from that time on here for you to see, but I am having technical difficulties with that. Also, some of our photos have been in those old types of albums for so long that I can't even peel them out without damaging them. Be sure to use acid free albums and pages for your memories. These by We R Memory Keepers are simple and affordable. I still need to change some of mine in order to keep them safe.
When we lived in Germany some of our favorite places to go were to the old castle ruins that are scattered all over the country. We also love the old city of Rothenburg with it's Meistertrank Clock. One vacation, we drove along the Neckar River to Heidelberg. We even hiked up a mountain in the Alps, Glen had our first born son on his back in a pack. There are just too many wonderful memories to enumerate!
After we were married a few years, my Sister and her husband took us on a trip to Tahiti! It was so beautiful! My husband had served as a missionary there 20 years before and it was so great for him to be able to show me the place he loved. We stayed on the Island of Moorea and ended on the big island of Tahiti. The people were wonderful and everything was gorgeous. We snorkeled and ate tons of seafood. It was amazing!
Lindsey lived there twice. During Law School, she lived in Cergy, near Paris for a semester. Then, she served a mission after Law School for 18 months in the southern part of France, including Lyon and Bordeaux and other beautiful cities. In Lindsey's words, "France has everything, big cities, small villages nestled in green countryside, forests, beaches, Europe's largest sand dune. Everywhere you go there is history and culture and delicious food. I am in love with France." That is Lindsey and her missionary companion in the pictures above, snow shoeing!
