My Favorite Things…

A big move can often leave us feeling out of sorts, and discombobulated (I love that word!). We miss things and people from our last home. We miss knowing how to get around, knowing where all the best stores are… well, we miss just knowing.

Every move requires adjusting to new people, new locations, new jobs, and so much more. One of the habits I've developed, is to find new things that our old place didn't have and which I love. Here is the first of many new favorite things!

Happy Hippos are the most magnificent Kinder chocolate EVER. Technically, we can get these in the States, but the only place I've ever seen them is World Market, and it's not like those are on every corner. And, they are wickedly expensive back home.

Here in Germany, Hippos are everywhere! And they are cheap. The local grocery stores (they sell in 5 packs!), the convenience stores, even the commissary carry them in stock. All over.

It's awesome.

So, if you haven't tried a Hippo, then get one today. I proudly introduced them to my new neighbor and pal just today. She can totally verify the amazingness that is Happy Hippo. I'm sure these things have a zillion calories, and are probably awful for your health, but it's soooooooo worth it.

Trust me, peeps.

If you've just moved, or even if you've been at your current duty station a while, try to find some of the good things that perk you up. By the time you move, you'll have a whole new list of things to miss, but I'd rather miss some stuff than never have enjoyed my space!

Until later!

Thanks for reading, everyone!
