Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Proof that I've been in hiding; didn't even know about this awesome party until this morning!!!


Click the link above to join the festivities.  There's a little something for everyone!  I personally joined the Daily Life and Opinion Blogs [since that's what mine is kind of about...life], Twitter links, and Pinterest links.  There's also Facebook, specialty, baby...you name it, they got it.  Go on, link up! You know you want to!



If you've found me via this amazing site, here's a quick intro for myself and my blog.

This is me.  My name is English.  I have a lot of freckles...hence the name of the blog.
This is my husband.  His name is Tim.  He's currently deployed with the Air Force.
And these are my pups, Sass and Ninja.  They're adorable.
I am a stay at home wife to my military husband.  We are currently located in Germany.  I love my life!

I'm also a full time online student at Washington Sate University.  Needless to say, college keeps my days pretty full with assignments and homework.  Not that much fun.

This blog is simply a lifestyle blog; I love taking pictures, and tote my camera around with me religiously.  All those pictures end up on here...so most of my posts are simply photographs.  Add in some recipes, some book reviews, and a couple melodramatic moments, and that's me in a nutshell.

A few of my favorite posts include: this photo shootthis post on all things miniature, and my trip to Venice, Italy.  

Welcome, and hope you enjoy.  Please leave your blog link in a comment if you visited so I can return the favor!

    1. The irony! Freckles and husbands named Tim must be the new thing. :) I'm in love with the header, too, but that might just be because it took me a good three days to figure out how exactly I needed to do it. *Computer illiterate* Thanks for visiting, heading your way right now to return the favor!

  5. I am visiting your blog via the UBP12 and what a beautiful blog it is. I have a daughter with a few freckles so the name of your blog caught my attention and your pups are so beautiful. I look forward to visiting again.

  6. I agree 100% with Yoli on those pictures of Italy...they are fabulous! How exciting to be in Germany...within driving distance of so many great places! Have you been able to sight see some of the amazing palaces yet? My mom always wanted to go to Germany but passed away before she could. I am going to follow your blog and live vicariously through you. :)

    Enjoy the rest of UBP and have a wonderful day!

    1. Why thank you, very much. I'm sorry your mother couldn't make it...it truly is such a wonderful experience to be here, and I think anyone and everyone should visit at least once. We have done some quick sight seeing of local areas, but we have only lived here for six months [and my husband has been deployed for two of them], so we will have to wait until this fall to take more vacations. However, we do have planned for this year: Belgium, Switzerland, Holland, and France. I plan on traveling as much as I possibly can handle while we have this chance!!! Thanks for following, hopefully I can persuade you through travel posts to just pick and up head to Europe! :)

  8. I am so in love with all your billions of freckles!!! Is that too weird? Well, anyway...I'm glad I found this blog! I too am a military wife, and I too am enamored with the European way of life. Also, your header pictures are adorable.

    Sincerely,
    another redhead (but I only have like two freckles or something)

    1. Hello, welcome! One or two freckles is better than none, in my opinion. And seriously...I can share. So so happy to have another military wife on here! Very glad you stopped by, I'll be sure to return the favor! And thank you for the compliments. The pictures were taken by my favorite photographer ever, and I don't think I will ever be able to change it now.
