Happy 13 Years to My Beautiful Bride

Happy 13 Years to My Beautiful Bride

I am so glad that God has blessed me with not only you but our two wonderful children.  Thank you for your loving-kindness as I grow in Christ.  Thank you for working with me throughout the years.  Not trying to control anything but just allowing me time that I have needed. I want to try and say romantic things so here goes... Thank you for carrying and birthing my two babies. Thank you for cooking my food. Thank you for doing my laundry.

David’s Couch to 10k

I have started running programs in the past and eventually I stop because I let life get in the way (excuses). I have done the Couch to 5k program a couple of times.  This time I wanted something a little more challenging, so I went from the couch to a 10k in 13 weeks. Last Saturday I ran my first ever 10k.  It wasn't an official race but who cares. I also kept track of my weight and I was able to drop from 76.8 kilos (169.32 lbs) to 73.8 kilos (162.70 lbs).

Moving in 2012

Moving in 2012

Well, it was a bit too busy for pictures on moving day.  I just never got around to it.  But here are some pictures of us moving into our new apartment.  These are of our kitchen.  Remember kitchens in Germany do not normally...
