Officially Introduced And Welcomed

November 8th.

Happy Sunday ๐Ÿ˜Š

Bro. Ron spoke again, it was about giving back to those or that which gives to you, in the spiritual but also in the natural aspect.
He used married couples as one example.
It feels odd to be included in that group now ๐Ÿ˜‹

On the way back to the cabin Mike decided we needed to try the race car simulator in the restaurant lobby ๐Ÿ˜œ


I changed into something a bit comfier, still not sure how anyone in the world can stay in dress clothes all day if they arenโ€™t being forced to.
But Mike… and most Europeans I’ve come ย across, dress awfully nice on simple, everyday occasions for being SO concerned about being ‘cozy’.
Cozy, It’s a dutch thing.
I ASK him to change so he at leastย loooooks like heโ€™s comfy ๐Ÿ˜†

That’s probably the most obvious outward difference about me and them, ( them being the foreignย ones of course) my clothing.
Comfort canโ€™t be beat ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

We went back to the restaurant area of the campground for lunch.
I wanted BBQ chicken pizza.. it sounded so โ€˜normalโ€™ and like food I would normally have.

It was disgusting.. leave the pizza to Italians not Dutch I suppose ๐Ÿ˜

Back to the cabin.
Nap time, again.
3:00 p.m. came and with it a wake up call from Inge.
She had arranged a reception type, come and go coffee and cake afternoon for us so the family and friends there had a chance to see the newlyweds.
Almost everyone who would have attended a reception had it been another day, were all together in one spot already, it worked well.

Little Canadian flags adorned the cakes and a few other Canadian touches here and there, very appreciated ๐Ÿ˜‰


Again many well wishes and new faces, but also some familiar.
Mark Hall had come for the conference and he came to our little get together.
He speaks english, he likes Canada, I know him already, therefore he was more than warmly welcomed ๐Ÿ˜‹

Many gave gifts that were all greatly appreciated ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•
Then a boy from Mikes church came in and asked if we wanted a wedding gift.
In his arms were two kittens ๐Ÿ˜
He found them in the woods and said they needed a home.
Mike and I had considered maybe getting me a kitten at some point but we werenโ€™t in a rush and figured we would just wait and see.
Also I feel pretty guilty leaving Rolo behind and then replacing her with a new kitten.
But the boy offering them to us out of everyone, them being cute and cuddly and the timing of it, all seemed to be a sign we should take them ๐Ÿ˜‰


The effort of Inge and those helping, as well as all who came to congratulate us and welcome me to Europe, truly meant a lot to us both and we say a big thank you!๐Ÿ’—

Hello humans ๐Ÿ˜Š This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life ๐Ÿ˜Š
