It’s a beautiful Thursday afternoon in West Germany and I sit here typing and sipping on a Café au lait, made with my favorite Starbucks coffee, Caffé Verona, while my beautiful 3-month-old son watches me type and my toddler naps. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and there is a beautiful breeze in the air. This is what I am looking out on right now from my home here in Germany. Ahhh Peace! Moments like this are treasured.
