Who’s that writing about me (Allie), you ask? That’d be my sister, Kate (Korosi) Crocker. By now you know a little bit about where we grew up but what you may not know is that Kate was born in Germany and in a twist of fate, now lives there with her husband Kenne and my oh-so-adorable (and enormous) neph-pup, Remington the Great Dane. You can call him Remi for short.
Kate may have thought I was the annoying little sister, but as we got into high school and she was second in her class, head cheerleader and had all the boys telling me “your sister’s cute” I think I was the one more irritated than anything! Our time on dance team was the probably the most time we spent together before she went to Indiana State University in Terre Haute. She started at ISU pursuing an aviation degree and had years of pilot’s training (weird, right?) before she switched to accounting.
Kate started working for the Department of Defense (or DFAS) out of college. I’m not going to lie – I’m still not 100% sure what it is she does there exactly but I know she makes sure our troops are paid and taken care of. In the fall of 2014, Kate and Kenne told us they had an offer from the government to take two positions at a small Army installation near Ramstein Air Base in Germany. In January of 2015 – off they went to their new town of Kaiserslautern. Just a hop, skip and a jump from some of the most amazing travel destinations in the world, Kate and Kenne have already visited Paris, Amsterdam, and Berlin and aren’t slowing down anytime soon!
