oktoberfest started yesterday! PROST!
yesterday oktoberfest started in Munich Germany and everywhere else where people like to pretend they are German and drink loads of beer. I'm just kidding about that last bit. I'm of German descent so I plan on making a German meal for my family this week. they probably will complain and my daughter will be afraid to eat it because she still has this crazy fear of all things German but I hope they will enjoy it.
I've been re embracing my German roots ever since I started Blood of New Beginnings. I got back to it in a round about way but it's nice to connect back with that side of my family. I traced our family tree all the way back to 17th century Rhine, Saarland Germany, near the French border. I really love doing genealogy work. sometimes family history is better than fiction. and being a history buff, I love seeing how my family fits into it.
