Our #royalwedding watch party yesterday #sulakids

Can you imagine being so beautiful you donโ€™t have to work a day in your life? Millieโ€™s life is that. #sulakids

From the deserts of Morocco, the sun in Dallas, to snow in Heidelberg! Headed to a snowy winter wonderland with the #sulakids next week. Any guesses where? Hint: itโ€™s my fave country in Europe ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป #heleneloveseurope

Get you somebody who looks at you the way my dogs look at me eating pizza. ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿถ Happy
#NationalPizzaDay from the #sulakids and me. Whatโ€™s your fave kind of pizza?

Itโ€™s a marshmallow world in the winter โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ” Went on the BEST HIKE OF MY LIFE. Michael and I kind of struck out yesterday when we tried to find a somewhat quiet place so we could run around with the dogs. We both slipped on ice on an overcrowded trail. But today was a different story. We stumbled upon a treacherous, snow covered road that we got stuck on but it led us to a picturesque mountain with our own private hiking trail, crazy wind (check my insta story), and insane views. We crunched through the heavy snow with the pups taking the lead. Definitely one of the most memorable days of my life. #heleneinswitzerland #helenesbandana #helenetravels #sulakids

Made it to Switzerland! Been a very interesting (and beautiful) day of driving through the mountains, Millie and Hugoโ€™s first ski lift ride, getting lost on a snow shoe path (AT NIGHT), and buying 6 euro pizzas to put in the oven at our hotel Bellevue in Interlaken ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™ˆ Vacationing with the pups is the best #sulakids #heleneinswitzerland #heleneloveseurope

What can I say? Bitches love Fall ๐Ÿ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜‚ Millie wrote the caption ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ #helyeahheidelberg #sulakids

Family portrait day in Germany ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿป๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿถ Traveling is so much fun but I was so ready to be back with the fam. Thatโ€™s the longest Iโ€™ve been away from the dogs and Michael (except in college). You know you gotta good one when youโ€™re excited to be back.
Tonightโ€™s agenda: chili and Narcos! Also counting down the days for Stranger Things. Got any good Netflix shows you recommend? #helenelovesgermany #sulakids #helyeahheidelberg #heleneandmichael

Back home in Heidelberg and thought I'd give you he 5 Helene essentials. Whether you new here or not, here's what you should know:
1. I'm a full time blogger and have been for years now but JUST attended my first ever blog conference. I am one of those old school bloggers. I prefer to write over everything else. ๐Ÿ“
2. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we've been together for 13 years. He's my biggest support, best person I know. Don't tell him that. ๐Ÿ˜›
3. I have lived my ENTIRE life in Dallas, Texas until we did a test drive last year before moving to Europe. We lived in Nashville, Tennessee. After realizing I could, in fact, live far away from my mom, we made the move to Europe. ๐ŸŽธ
3. We picked Heidelberg, Germany to live in because Germany has a great economy, speak English, have a great freelance visa process, and Heidelberg is a little fairytale town and right smack dab in the middle of Europe, so easy to travel! โœˆ๏ธ
4. My goals in life are to create an app or technology that Ganges the game for bloggers (currently working on that!!) and write a fiction novel. ๐Ÿ“ฑ
5. I'm not sure that I'm going to have kids but I'm going to have lots and lots of dogs. The #sulakids are my life! ๐Ÿถ
Okay, tell me an essential I need to know about you!!โฌ‡๏ธ #helyeahheidelberg #helenelovesgermany #helenesredbandana
BONUS: See my stories for number 6!

One year ago TODAY Michael and I packed up our two suitcases, dogs, and tearfully waved goodbyes to our family and friends in Dallas to MOVE to a country we'd never set foot in. I don't think I'd ever felt so nervous and excited. I remember sitting on the airport floor holding Millie in my lap and stoking Hugo's head thinking: "Is this really going to work out?"
Here we are one year later with visas (even though it was a hard journey), a place to live, friends, and a love for Germany and all the places we've explored.
Time has flown by and I can't wait to see what this next year holds. Thank you ALL for being part of our journey. I can't tell you how much it means to me.

Strolled around a town in the Black Forest, Two hikes, two castles, and countless sunflower fields. Michael, the #sulakids, and I had an epic adventure day around Germany ending with a sunset over Hohenzollern Castle. It was worth the climb for the view as my red, sweaty face approves. #sweatyhairdontcare #exceptidobecausethisisgross #butdogslookgood #helenelovesgermany #nationaldogday

Pups + mountains ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป doesn't get much better than this. ๐Ÿถโ›ฐ Millie had the best time chasing cows and scaling sheer cliffs. Hugo has a hurt foot but will be back in action in a couple weeks. #thattonguetho #sulakids #heleneloveseurope #travelinbetween #heleneinaustria

Looking for summer in Germany like ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€There's a new post on the blog about things have I've learned about Germans since moving to Germany 8 months ago. Like why they love gassy water, don't understand my over enthusiasm, and insist on a rule for... everything. Except when it comes to grocery stores...
