Thanksgiving weekend visitors

We were so lucky this Thanksgiving because we had three visitors come to Frankfurt! We didn't cook a traditional American Thanksgiving, but we had a darn good time and threw in a few American things. Our visitors included Jason Tatum, our college buddy who is doing campus ministry in Birmingham, England. He works near the University of Birmingham at a place called Canvas, you should check it out. Another guest was my Georgia Tech volleyball teammate none other than, Katie freakin Mohs. Katie works for Siemens and took a job in Nuremberg, Germany this past August. This was our first of hopefully many get togethers. Nuremberg is about 2 hours from Frankfurt by fast train. Last but not least was my other Georgia Tech teammate Ulli Stegemann. Ulli is German and lives in Munich.

The whole gang (minus me)

The weekend included many laughs and lots of good times. We enjoyed schnitzel, schnapps, farmer markets, Christmas markets with Gluhwein, touring around Frankfurt, beer, naps and some American football. It is always great to see familiar faces. You know how it is when you are around people that know you. When I get controlling and pushy, yes it happens, good friends just laugh and call you out.  Or when I get over-excited they just smile and say that's Marisa. Thanks guys, you are true friends!

We had to!

GTVB Reunion!

All of us sprawled out in our tiny apartment watching the GT vs. UGA game the morning after on Justin's computer. I am not going to even comment on the game.

I had such a good time with these three and I hope they did too. That being said visitors are always welcomed at the Jackson's.
