4th of July - 4. Juli

Well, I know that the 4th of July has been over over a month, but in my defense, I didn't have a camera and I had to wait for the pictures!

It was my first 4th of July as a permanent resident in the US. My husband got me the perfect shirt a few weeks before! And we had friends visiting us from Germany.

Krizi and Chris arrived in Jax on the 3rd; they had been on the road for over two weeks, starting their east coast trip in Chicago!

In the morning we enjoyed an all American breakfast with pancakes, eggs and bacon! Not necessarily healthy, but oh so good! It was so good that I don't even have a picture of it! I LOVE breakfast! It's my favorite. Just ask my husband if you don't believe me!

After breakfast we got ready to go to the beach. It was hot and sunny - a typical 4th of July in Florida - perfect for a day at the beach!

We packed a cooler, snacks and a mini-football and off we went!

Curious - Neugierig

Photo by Nan Ramey, July 27th
I've had this blog for about five month now. And I enjoy writing about my life and sharing recipes with you.

But I am quite curious to know who's reading my blog.

I know my family and some of my friends stop by here to see how I'm doing, but I'm wondering who it is. 

So if you could just leave a quick comment, I would really appreciate it. I'd love to hear from you!

If you have any request on recipes or post, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

So long,

Recipe: Broccoli Salad with Chickpeas, Spinach and Bacon - Rezept: Brokkolisalat mit Kichererbsen, Spinat und Speck

Yesterday I felt like something light for dinner. Plus, I didn't really feel like cooking for hours... I checked the fridge and found some broccoli, spinach and bacon. I knew I had some chickpeas in the pantry as well, and I just love the taste of chickpeas!

So, I thought, I'll just make a salad :-)

90 Days - 90 Tage

Home - I've been "home" for 90 days today! Here at my new home in Jacksonville, Florida. 

Today, if I wouldn't have a visa and green card, I would have to leave the USA.

It seems short and long, at the same time. I don't know how to explain it. So much has happened, but at the same time it went by so quick!

Cruise Part II - Zweiter Teil der karibischen Kreuzfahrt

This time you didn't have to wait as long for my next post :-) 

Back to the cruise:
On day four we docked in Cozumel Mexico. Dani, Josh and I had booked a shore excursion to the Mayan Ruins of Tulum. We got off our ship, and got on a smaller one, because Cozumel is an island off the coast of Mexico and the ruins are on the mainland. 
Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Old news from our cruise (Part I) - Endlich Bilder von unserer Kreuzfahrt (Erster Teil)

Part I

I can't believe it's almost two month since our cruise and I haven't posted anything!

What an amazing trip it was! I really enjoy cruises. They are so relaxing. You don't have to worry about anything. They have almost anything you could imagine on a cruise ship - food, pools, shore excursions, gambling, food, hot tubs, miniature golf, food, shows, and of course, food! Yes, lots and lots of food... I did enjoy quite a few treats but made some healthier choices too.

My husband and I had been on a few cruises before. This time our friend, Dani, joined us.
