Welcome to my world!

Hello, fellow Blizzard Boghoppers! Welcome to my world! What all is a part of my world, you ask? My husband (of whom I am proud to be called his wife) that serves in the US Air Force, and the reason we are living in Europe. My boys, that even though neither of them were planned, are of the utmost importance to me. My friends, to whom I am completely loyal and committed to. Books, books, and more books. I have never, in my life, made it a secret of how much of a bookworm I am and how much I love to learn. My crafting, which is the only way I keep my sanity most days. Knitting, crocheting, beading, and playing with clay are my current obsessions, though that's always open to expand and/or grow. I love to make things with my hands for nothing other than the sake of watching it take form under my fingers. Music, while no longer in the form of band and choir (of which I took part of both in high school), will remain a vital part of my life until the day I die.

I have always had an explorer's spirit, and am ecstatic to have the opportunities abroad that I do (with an emphasis on all things France and French!). I love to discover new little tidbits about the most random and seemingly insignificant details that I can, and am a hard core Harry Potter fan. There is so much more to me than I could fit into a few sentences, but that's the gist of it all. Oh, and I smile. A lot. In fact, because of my tendency towards optimism and all things cheery, my user name around the web tends to have the words "netta" and some form of "smile" in it. :) (Yes, my excessive smiling extends to emoticons, too...) I hope to meet some amazing people through this bloghop! Feel free to hop on board or not. :)

Hi, I followed you back over from my blog and I've got to say wow, I'm so jealous. Italy and Germany! I have two boys too, though not as close in age as yours. I'll definitely be back to read more.

Thanks, Rose! Yeah, I'd be jealous if I were hearing from someone else where all I have been able to visit and live! LOL I very much appreciate and love living here and will take it for all it's worth!

So do you like Germany better than Italy? What does your husband do? I take it's something with F-16's if you were at Aviano and now Spang. We were in OK too at Vance. Were you there or someplace else in OKC?

I'm not altogether sure on that, yet. So far, it seems like the Germans are more personable than Italians, and I definitely prefer the German architecture to the Italian, but I do miss the gelato and NO SNOW and being an hour away from Venice. LOL I do wish I'd have gotten out to see more of Italy sooner than I did. I feel like I missed so much! I won't be making that mistake here, that's for sure!

My husband is in COM SEC, working with computers and communications and such. When I was in Oklahoma, it was to be closer to my in-laws (as my husband is FROM Oklahoma and his family is there still) while he did his year remote in Korea. I wanted to give them a chance to spend time with my boys before we moved overseas. :)
