Three years ago today, I became a U.S. citizen. Time sure went by fast. Considering the fact that I am still not officially hired as a federal employee (which was one of the main reason for me to get dual citizenship in the first place), things at my job have clearly taken their damn sweet time. I am hoping that this will be resolved in the not too distant future.

My co-workers took me out to a fun belated birthday lunch this week. In Germany, you’re usually required to or bring cake or donuts or something for your co-workers on your birthday. In our office, the birthday girl/boy is taken out to lunch by the rest of the group. I like that :)

I had a couple more sales in our Etsy shop (among others thanks to Kaci!) and that’s so exciting. I haven’t sold a whole lot of items yet, but it’s a nice side hobby and I enjoy when other people enjoy my crafts.

My sister, BIL and the munchkins (niece (6) and nephew (5)) were in Italy/South Tyrol on skiing vacation this week and my sister kept sending me pictures and little video clips of the kiddos and I basically died from the cute watching them, because they were so fearless and are such naturals on skis. My sister and I learned skiing when we were 4 years old and it’s something she definitely wanted to pass on to her kids. I am so proud of them and I wanted to be there so badly and I just miss them so much my heart aches. Just look at them!!!

This month I am participating in my blogger friend Fee’s ABC photo challenge on Instagram. Her blog is in German, so you might not be able to read her post, but the rules in a nutshell: starting on April, 1, post a picture of something starting with the letter A and then the following days with each subsequent letter of the alphabet and use the hashtag #abcfee2015 on Instagram for a fun way to document the next 24 days (XZY are combined on the last day). If you wanna participate and/or follow along, follow me on Instagram.
Happy Easter weekend, friends!
