So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, goodbye...

We have officially moved out of our lovely home in Esslingen and are now staying in a military hotel until we leave this beautiful country! This week I have been catching up and farewelling my German friends (telling them "Auf Wiedersehen" means "see you again" sometime) but there have still been some tears. I feel so blessed for the wonderful friendships we have forged here!
Look at that precious face above. This picture was taken on Monday as Zev waited for the Army movers to come and pick up their rental furniture. Which smelled. Pretty bad actually. Like teenage boys´ wet socks. We burnt some candles to try and mask the smell. Still very grateful for the free rental furniture though. Thanks, Army!
Last week, Zev´s colleagues hosted a farewell drinks night at the club on base. Zev´s boss gave a very nice speech and recognized Zev´s extraordinary efforts working logisitcs for the African continent these past 3 years. I am so proud of my man...
The lady in the middle is moving into our house! I am so excited for her! She will love the house, the neighborhood and above all, our neighbors!
Sweet Gena and I.
After the Army movers came and took the last of the furniture, we went up to our old "local" for old times sake and enjoyed the "usual" order: Teller Schnitzel!!! The owner actually gave us a double portion as you can see by the plate in the middle, as we were leaving. I couldn´t eat the second schnitzel so it is in our little hotel fridge for Zev to have later.

Hope you are having a lovely week! Zev and I are going bowling at the bowling lane on base for our date night tonight!

Auf Wiedersehen, Goodnight...
