Trip to Sopot for the finals.

My friend Eta and I had drinks in this cute little cafe overlooking the sea.  Good times!

Having lunch in Sopot with our boys!

Sopot was a very trendy, beach town.  If the weather would have been nicer it would have been the ideal spot in Poland to relax!  Unfortunately, we experienced less than ideal weather conditions, but it was a nice escape from Zgorzelec at least!

John in front of the strange building.  It reminded me of something out of Alice in Wonderland!

Having dinner in Gydnia, where the guys stayed.  At least we were able to sneak in a few meals with them here and there!

My 25th Birthday!

My wonderful hubby, taking a morning walk with me on my birthday. We in the north of Poland for a semi-finals game. Which they lost, but that's okay because they won later when it mattered. :)
The birthday girl... getting so old! ;)

It seems like just yesterday that we were celebrating my 16th birthday, who would have thought we'd still be together nine years later? And in Poland nonetheless!

Notice the mohawk? John's whole team did them for the play-offs. It will be cut before we get on the plane to head to the States!

A swan swimming away in the sea! I have been so incredibly blessed to have experienced so much in my 25 years of life. I have an amazing husband, a wonderful family, and incredible friends. Thanks to all for your support and your prayers!


It is a rainy morning (rather afternoon) here in Zgorzelec.  And, thanks to a gentle reminder from a friend I am finally updating our blog.  :)  

Much has happened since the last time I wrote.  John's team has advanced to the finals, after defeating Energa Czarni 4-2 in the semi-finals.  Prokom, the number seed, also advanced and we are currently down 2-1 in the seven game series with the next game being at home tomorrow.  Unfortunately, we lost a game last night that we shouldn't have by three points after being up most of the game and having the momentum through most of the game. Hopefully some changes will be made going into the game tomorrow and our guys fight harder than ever before.  I know John is ready for revenge!  He was so bummed last night that I figured I had to do something to get his mind off of things, so we had a dance party.... just the two of us.  The theme songs? "Just dance" and "Live your Life."  Haha... yes, we are that cool. ;)  
I went to my workout gym for the last time yesterday, and it was rather bittersweet.  I get so tired of saying good-byes in this crazy life of mine, but sadly enough it comes with the territory.  I felt like my last day at the gym was just a small foreshadowing of the upcoming weeks and I found myself torn between not wanting to say "good-bye" to friends here but also  wanting to say "hello" to friends and family in the States all the same.  

Since they say a picture is worth a thousand words, I will do a couple of posts detailing the last few weeks.
