So-- sad story, short: the box we mailed from Germany to United States which contained our computer never made it here. Lost, stolen-- I don't know. All I know is that 5 years worth of pictures is gone just like that. All our European travels. Two of my babies. Video of kids playing, learning to talk, etc., gone. I am fairly heartbroken.
WHY didn't we take out the hard drive with my pictures on it and carry it WITH us the entire way? I do not know (which hard drive, incidentally, I made Brett buy so that we would HAVE an extra copy of everything, but we never got to the point where we put it in a separate, safe place).
Yes, luckily there is my blog, however the pictures are much MUCH smaller and worse quality. But better than nothing.
Holy cow do I ever wish though that I had finished blogging about our trip to Croatia and Venice before getting overwhelmed with moving stuff and putting it on hold. So much sadness.
Anyway, happily, I did make a video of some of the picture s from Croatia, and I did put up seven pictures of Venice on Facebook. So I will post them here. And keep praying that someway, somehow, someday, I will maybe get my pictures back.
Venice. Seven measly pictures of it.
