Our Goodbye Party

In case you haven’t picked up on it before, a very important part of German culture is throwing parties! One of the most important of those parties is a goodbye party. As with typical German culture, you throw this party yourself and it is a way to honor all of the people in your life and have one last “hurrah” together! Since our two years has sadly come to an end, this was a very important event for us. Over the last two years, there have been so many people here that have supported us, and we wanted to make this part something to show them how much they meant to us! To me, of course, what makes something really special is photographs. To Germans, something really special is an afternoon grilling together. So, we combined the two. We invited everyone to the church for an afternoon of grilling. Then, we sifted through all of our photos for the last 2 years and printed off only about 5% of them. But, it was a small way to remind people of all the good times that we had together and think about all of the wonderful experiences we were able to have during these two years. We also wrote a note to our guests thanking them for their love, support, and friendship. We had a great time and some great food and it was a great way to celebrate the last two years with some very special people! Take a look:
