So I had to have my car serviced this morning. I usually choose to wait, as to not disturb anyone or ask for a ride. Scott had off this morning, so after taking Trentan to german kindergarten, he stayed home to help Micah with his homeschooling. Guess who took Chloe? Yep, momma and daughter time. So the dealership was freezing, there was no way I could wait there for several hours. However, as I drove into town, I noticed the new Barbarossa Cafe. After dropping off the car, Chloe and I took a brisk walk to the new cafe. Totally trendy and wonderful! Cozy couches and dim lighting, perfect for the soon-to-be 5 hour wait. We took a corner booth at the top of the backerei (bakery) - and proceeded to have hot cocoa, pasteries, brezels (pretzels) and a yummy Big Ben sandwich (not all at the same time!) Of course Chloe did her fair share of roaming, what do you expect for a 2 year old? She is almost 100% potty trained so we used the restroom quite a few times! Loved the WC sink! In the midst of all that-I just sat back, read my magazines, played with Chloe, and thought again in amazement that "I live in Germany". Maybe not a dream to some-but one that I always prayed for. My husband said the excitement would wear off, and here we are 4 years later and I still have to pinch myself. I love it here! So I am thankful for a long service change this morning that helped me put it back into perspective how truly BLESSED I am!!!!!!!!!!
