Last night Jib and I watched the EuroCup semi-final between Italy and Germany at our favorite restaurant in the Beligian Quarter of Cologne, Ouzeria. For the 15 people on the planet who don’t know yet, Germany lost. We were heart broken, along with the 99.9% of the rest of Germany. I’m pretty sure that I haven’t watched a Super Bowl in five or more years, but something about this European football thing grabs my heart and soul. What can I say? I’m now a football fan. The funny make-up, the jerseys, the chanting, the kolsch! It is just fun. And we got to reminiscing about some other fun moments. Check it out . . .
And I could go on and on. There have been so many wonderful moments and new connections here. A sample will have to do for now! What I really love about this little walk down memory lane is that so much of the good stuff has been simple. Sandboxes, playgrounds, walks, time with friends, and laughter! Memories need not be dramatic. Indeed the intensely fun and personal moments make for such a beautiful little history.
