Enter the Strecker family.
My dear, dear friend Mary along with her husband and two boys just took the courageous leap and moved to Germany for the next year. Cody is in graduate school and Mary + boys are in German life and culture school. I couldn't be more excited or more proud of these precious four. It was such a wonderful experience to see them dream up this idea, try to wrestle with their fears and hesitations, and ultimately decide to just go for it. That is the kind of adventurous spirit that I am so envious of.
Anyway, if you, like me, want nothing more than to watch a beautiful and creative mama figure out life for the next year abroad, feel free to take a look.
