It’s taken me a minute to gather my thoughts on this one. I feel like I did a great job (yes, I’m patting myself on the back) blogging about our travels and experiences, but not such a hot job detailing the ups and downs of life in Singapore. We’ve been back in the States one … More Singapore, Signing Off
Our short trip to Germany was utterly successful, yet in the end…life happened! Josh and I had the most amazing whirlwind, four days in Germany! We flew out of Singapore at 1:30am on Sunday night/Monday morning and landed in Frankfurt on Monday at 10:30am. Personally, I think these are the best flights! You are going … More German Impressions and House Hunting
Wednesday, November 29th it ALL started happening! I will admit…I’ve been terrible about blogging updates for our life plans. I’ve been in denial. Major denial. Josh’s two-year contract was set to end in October. Even though I had mixed emotions about leaving Singapore, I was ready. However, due to unforeseen corporate circumstances, our time in … More IT’S ALL HAPPENING!!
I couldn’t let this season of life pass by without paying homage to our current condition– rainy season. Living on the equator is a love/hate relationship. It’s amazing because the weather is literally the same every single day of the year- super, sticky hot and crazy humid…i.e. the most humid place I’ve ever experienced on … More Rainy Season, Rainy Season- Go Away
Since we moved to Singapore, I’ve made it a point to scribble down memories and capture photos to post on my blog of our travels around southeast Asia and Australia. So far, I’ve done a pretty darn good job! (Yes, I am patting myself on the back) Unfortunately, I did leave out a pretty significant … More Pulau Pangkil
Over the past two years, I’ve kept a running list of quirky words or Singaporean phrases. Prior to moving over here, I was thrilled to hear Singaporeans spoke English. This would make the transition to living in Asia much easier. Moving to a foreign country is challenging enough. Throwing a new language on top of … More Say What?!
October 19th marked the beginning of the “Festival of Lights.” It is a Hindu celebration highlighted every autumn and spiritually signifies the history of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over importance, and hope over despair. Its celebration includes millions of lights shining on housetops, outside doors and windows, around temples and other buildings in … More Deepavali/Diwali
These guys were quite the stunners for the Halloween party at our condo. When I asked Jack what he wanted to be for Halloween, his first response was Catboy (PJ Mask) and he wanted Evan to be Gecko. Hah! I thought it was a precious idea and was all for it…that is until I went … More Prince William and Harry
Growing up in a rural mountain town, I obviously had no clue what a true, city lifestyle meant. I especially had zero idea what was in store for me when it came to having a baby and toddler in said major metropolitan city. Josh and I spent six years in Atlanta- the largest city in … More City Life with Kiddos in Tow
You know…first steps, first words, car, house, etc? Remember the feelings that came crashing around you just before you succeeded into those “first” unknowns? Nervousness, excitement, wonder, anxiety? Yes and yes, to all of them. All week, those recurring feelings began creeping upon me again. Thursday marked another first. My first tattoo. As spontaneous as … More First Time for Everything
