Willkommen Sie meinen Blog

Welcome to my Blog, I'm glad you stopped by. I thought a little introduction was in order after I reviewed some Blogs of others and didn't have a clue what it was their Blog was about even after reading the last several posts. Not that it matters, if you like what I write, read on, if not, no harm no foul.

I began writing again after one of my grad classes last summer inspired me to do so. It was a class on the world famous author, Stephen King and it was incredible. In 2011 I received my Master of Arts in Liberal Studies degree from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. My undergraduate degree is also from UNCW in Sociology with a minor in Gerontology which I obtained in 2005.

A lot has changed since I began writing this Blog in 2010. I am rediscovering who it is that I am and what makes me happy. Feel free to read through from the beginning and see where I have come from and continue to follow along as I begin a new chapter in my life, one that proves to be interesting and filled with exciting challenges that I can't wait to share with the World. So for now, "Das ist Leben"...this is life!

165th Stuttgart Cannstatter Volksfest

Ich Liebe Pommes

The Cannstatter Volksfest, known as the "Stuttgart Beer Festival" to many Americans, is the second largest beer festival in the world; the Oktoberfest in München is the largest.

Matt and I went to this fest twice since it's where we live...just a short train ride to the Wasen (fest grounds). Oktoberfest in Germany is nothing like an American festival, at least none that I've ever been to, and I've been to TONS! Once we arrived at the festival on Sunday the 10th, we enjoyed some Pommes and Steak Brötchens with our new friends; our next door neighbor Tonya and her friends Jim and Simona were our escorts. This was the final day of the festival and it was pretty packed; I have a feeling it was because of the nice weather. The first time we visited it was opening day, and it rained on us the entire time.
