My Girls


Gracie and Lucy outside having fun.

Gracie loves to chase her red ball, but Lucy does not really care much for running after a ball.
We have to throw a stick for her, but she gets easily bored with it.
Whereas Gracie does not know when to quit. I always say she could play for the Chicago Cubs and I am tempted to get her a shirt.
Go Gracie, go!

I am going to see my friend Claudia from Michigan soon. We used to work together and I have not seen her since I moved from Michigan to Indiana six years ago. The distance between us is rather large - 500 miles (800 km). For us Europeans that is hard to believe. You can drive from the north of Germany to the south in one day and here I can do the same and I am just in another state. It took me 8 hours of non-stop driving from Northeast Michigan (still the lower Peninsula) to West-Central Indiana.
 We are going to meet in Shipshewana, Indiana and I am looking forward to it.
Shipshewana has the largest Flea Market in the Midwest.
And it is Amish Country and a shopper's paradise.
 I have never been there and I am sure we will have lots of fun.

Have a great weekend!
Take care!


  1. Your friends made my heart so happy to see them!

  5. Liebe Heidi,

    das wird aber auch Zeit, dass Ihr Euch wiederseht. Aber ich kenne das auch, wenn man einfach nicht oft die Möglichkeit hat sehr gute Freunde zu sehen.

    Genießt Eure gemeinsame Zeit und habt viel Freude miteinander, damit Ihr schöne Erinnerungen mit nach Hause nehmen könnt, bis zum nächsten Treffen♥

    Liebste Grüße und ein sonniges Wochenende

  6. Dear Heidi,
    thats a real good reason to go to Shipshewana;-)) I think you will have a lot of fun at the fleamarket... it seems really biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig!!! They have a visitorguide for it, i cant believe this... i never have been on a such big fleamarket. Enjoy your weekend! Have fun! Take care!
    Hugs, Ursula

  10. Herzig deine beiden Mädels :-) und dir viel Spass mit deiner Freundin Claudia.


  11. sweet little girls, cheeky looking too.

    Have a lovely trip. I would say that driving in the US is probably easier than in Germany - and the UK -. Our roads in Europe are busier, crowded, faster. I have only driven in the US - in New England - once, but it was a pleasure. Would you agree?

  12. Have a great time with your friend. gracie and Lucy are cute, thanks for sharing them with us.

  13. Your little girls are so adorable!
    Hope you have a wonderful time with your friend!

  14. Gracie deve essere un biricchino!! belli i tuoi cuccioli!! felice giornata a te....ciao

  15. Oh your girls sure are sweet looking. Have a good time with your friend. I envy you going to the flea markets and being in Amish country. Enjoy all the wonderful sites you will see. Have a safe trip.

  16. Liebe Heidi,

    ich schick Dir liebste Freitagsgrüße über den großen Teich und hoffe, dass es Dir gut geht und Du eine schöne Zeit hast!!!

    Bis bald

  17. you gorgeous little creatures! come meet Pickles and play!
