rainy springtime... and FAMILY

 

i do love the change of seasons, i really do. but i do wish they would actually CHANGE. :-) well... it has changed from snow to rain here in switzerland, it's true... but after being in colorado and california recently for two weeks, i clearly remember now one of my favorite things about california -- besides my dear family and friends, and the ocean -- the WEATHER! oh my gosh, every day was warm, sunny, sparkly, shiny, salty-tasting, pleasant, blue, green, golden, palm-tree-shimmering, sunscreen-wearing, WARM and easy-breezy weather. :)

 

OK, surely i must have something more interesting to write about than weather... oh yes, i do!

 

FAMILY: old and young. what a wonderful time i had in the states last month, visiting family. what a blessed and bountiful time. i think i gained 5 pounds (2.5 kilos), eating all the delicious home cooked meals and wonderful restaurant choices (yes, the USA has GREAT food) but no matter - i LOVED seeing my family again.

 

here are two of the oldest members of the Wimmer clan, and the newest. Auntie Gerty (88) and Auntie Betty (94)... and then baby Abby (4 months). LOVE and GRATITUDE, beth

 

 

march madness! :)

 

yes, march madness, but in a good way. :) a good 'mad', as in 'mad about you'. :)

i am trying to publish a new website, (trying to) write new songs and polish them, trying to answer all emails, help friends fund their crowd funding campaigns, spend time with my chubby cats brushing and playing with them, spend time with my husband (he's cooking dinner, thank goodness) AND pack for my trip to Colorado and California!

i am an american girl, singer songwriter, living in switzerland for nearly 7 years now. i love it here, and i really live here, i must pinch myself daily when i look out my window at my view. 

i have built my career here better than i could have done in the states, and i have no regrets about leaving the USA. and thank goodness for skype and facetime so i can stay in close contact, video chat, with friends and loved ones. i love that i live in a new (old) country.

AND, i am very excited to go visit my family and friends in beautiful USA tomorrow. the march madness is two states and a road trip, all to visit 3 wonderful aunts, 30 cousins, 2 sisters and a brother, one of my moms, and a handful of dear friends! 

now THAT. is exciting. off i go!

Love and wellness,

beth
