Do you spend your days wiping butts, cleaning up spills, breaking up fights, and taking deep breaths during tantrums? Do you find yourself panicking out of anxiety throughout the night, because you fear your baby may suffocate, toddler may climb out of his crib, or preschooler will wake you at 3am because he has to … More My First Solo Trip
While life has been churning on, my littlest love turned 18 months old. If I’m being honest…he turned 19 months on September 3rd. Yikes! They always say, “babies don’t keep, ” and it couldn’t be more true! Seriously, where does time go?? This one tipped the scales at 29lbs and measured 34.5 inches tall. All … More 18 Months – What?!
If you watched our House Hunters International episode and/or read my post about it, then I’m sure you realized there wasn’t much difference between homes in Singapore vs homes in the US. Well, except for the kitchen being outside in most landed (single-family) homes. Because I was NOT cooking outside in this year-round swamp like … More Quirks of a Home in Singapore
So…I lied. I was going to make this post a part deux of my House Hunters International post and elaborate on what our actual home in Singapore is really like.

Saturday night marked the first live sporting event I’ve attended in almost two years!! You could say I was feigning a bit… This is crazy to let sink in, because we are AVID sports fans and regularly attended a variety of games back in the States. So much so that when living in Austin, Texas, … More GOAL!!!!
For the past year and a half, I’ve kept a pretty swell secret from the public. My family and close friends have known all along, and our visitors have had the pleasure of being introduced. Pour a cup of coffee or glass of wine (depending on your time zone) and sit back for the most … More Meet Mirasol
I had to wait a little bit to compile this post because because because, June was utterly overwhelming. Lemme rewind a bit. Back in March, one of my very dearest friends moved. It wasn’t just her that moved either. Jack was super close to her two boys, and Josh had developed a strong friendship with … More And the beat goes on…
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, we got a little trigger happy with booking travel back in December. In the span of six months, we’ve touched six countries (Thailand & Malaysia 2x), and the Maldives happened to be last on our list to visit. It’s a wondrous place, and most would say it’s similar to … More What?! You Took Your Children to the Maldives?!
When you live 10,000 miles away from home and four of your favorite people come visit, you literally can’t sleep the night before. Josh has been friends with Pat and Adam since they were little guys. I also grew up with the boys back in good ‘ol Weaverville, NC, but I didn’t know them that … More Weaverville Does Asia!
