Meander Down Memory Lane

I've been reading Colleen from Martin Family Moments story of how she met her husband and it took me on my own trip down memory lane. Colleen and her husband met while studying abroad in Austria with Franciscan University of Steubenville. Both my husband and I studied there as well. I had a few pictures in a file on my desktop that I thought I'd put up for fun just to give you all a small taste of some of my favorite memories.

My first glimpse of where I'd be living for the next several months. I thought I had stepped through the wardrobe and into Narnia.

In the spring, once the snow melted, we took pictures in the field overlooking school. Little did I know at the time that the friend who hoisted e on his shoulder for this picture would become my brother-in-law in just a few years!

Wahoo!!! I love joyful, happy memories!!!

I decided I'm kind of a blog-stalker on accident (meaning, I did not start out to be). Because I read yours, and I read colleen's. And, it makes me happy that my you read each other's. One day, I shall own a blog. So I have decided!!!- Mary

Love that picture at the end. Do I hear "How do you solve a problem like Maria" blaring in the background? :)

Mary, that semester I went to Salzburg and walked on the (then frozen) lake that the von Trapp children paddled up to their gate and then flipped into the water when they saw Cpt. von Trapp in the movie.

I also was able to go to the church where the real Maria and Cpt. Trapp were married.

Most amazing experience ever!!!! Someday I'll have to blog about that semester so i won't forget the stories in my old age. LOL!
