My Polish Flower Baskets! Last weekend I was in the flower mood! Like a mentioned we went to a flower carpet on THIS post, so that made me realize I need to do something in my front door entry to make it a bit nicer looking since it is flower season. Just down the street from me is a garden center. I have never stopped at it before but I have always seen cars in front of it so I thought "why Read more [...]

In Poland here we did not celebrate Mother's Day as it is celebrated on the 26th of May no matter what day of the week it lands on unlike in the USA.

Panama Comes to Visit Poland! This month my youngest daughter's classroom is learning about different parts of the world such as continents and the countries that are in them. Well, for some crazy reason her teacher asked me to do a presentation or two on a few countries. Just because I have had 4 kids in 4 different countries? So first up, Panama! I put my oldest daughter to work on this one Read more [...]
Are we there yet? Yesterday was one of the days, where I REALLY enjoy living in Poland!! Why, because I am just a short 5 hour drive away to the Polish pottery mecca, Boleslawiec! Close enough for a very long day trip. The International Spouses Club that I am active in, is doing a fundraiser by selling custom made coffee mugs and having the profit support the charities we are sponsoring this Read more [...]
A Visit to...Blue Church, Bratislava, Slovakia I mentioned a few weeks ago we went to Bratislava, Slovakia. One of the things we stumbled upon when walking to the neighborhood grocery store was this... So of course I had to go inside to see what it looked like and this is what I found... Now what is the scoop on this church? I had to go my handy dandy tour book of the Read more [...]

They had 30 different photographers go in groups through the hotel and take pictures of different rooms in the hotel that normally are only open to hotel guests or customers. We have had friends who have Read more [...]
Five of the Best Family Days Out in Poland Since we've been adventuring here in Poland for way over a year now, I thought it was about time I gave a run-down of some of the best places to take the kids. Polish cities like Warsaw and Gdansk have a great reputation for their architecture and heritage but what might surprise is that there are also loads of ways to keep children occupied on a day trip. Palace Read more [...]

Need a Cozy Apartment in Poznan, Poland? So a few weeks ago the hubby ran the Poznan Half-Marathon along with several other of his friends that he talked into running. Like I have mentioned before one of the main ways we see Europe is from the different marathons my husband runs. Poznan was the next city for us to explore. It is less than a 2 hour drive from us but we decided why not make a Read more [...]
Bratislava the City of Sculptures! So when the hubby was running the Bratislava marathon a few weeks ago, we did a lot of walking around the town. Once thing that stuck out for us was all the different sculptures they had around town! Not just one or two here and there but almost on every block there was at least one. We Read more [...]

We are working on our rental agreement with our new potential landlord and hopefully by this weekend we will have Read more [...]
Visit to....Warsaw Uprising Museum April 19th is a special day in Warsaw, Poland. Why? Because today is the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was the 1943 act of Jewish resistance that arose within the Warsaw Ghetto in German-occupied Poland during World War II, and which opposed Nazi Germany's final effort to transport the remaining Ghetto Read more [...]
The End of a Vacation / The Beginning of a Nightmare Well one of the perks of living in Europe is all the travel opportunities that available to us. But the same goes when you are in the USA but even easier because you do not have worry about what travel documents or what laws they may have because they are pretty much the same between states. The sad part is that we just do not travel as much Read more [...]

For the past 2 weeks in town we have had a fair/carnival here in town. Unfortunately the weather has not cooperated for us to make it the city center to enjoy it but yesterday FINALLY the weather was GREAT so right after the girls swimming lessons I decided to stop the car and head down there for an hour since the hubby had to work all day. There is not much difference between the US and Polish Read more [...]
Our Final Home Volleyball Game! It is hard to believe but Wednesday night was probably the last home game for the KS Palac volleyball team for the 2012-2013 season. AND there is a good chance it was our last game to watch them too as the final 2 games are away and I do not think we will be able to go to them. The night was bittersweet to watch our newest family member Rachael play in the last volleyball Read more [...]
A Visit to...Vienna, Austria 2 weeks ago I did a post about my hubby running the Bratislava, Slovakia marathon. Well we stayed for a few extra days to do some sight-seeing around that area as have never been to that part of the world yet. When talking to a few of my Slovakian friends here they mentioned that Vienna was only a 40 minute drive away, who knew? So instantly that went on my bucket Read more [...]
Time to Visit...Pozan Half Marathon Last weekend we were out and about again this time to Poznan, Poland for the hubby to run his first marathon(OK half) in Poland.

This one was a bit more fun as Read more [...]
