It’s astounding to think that just over 1 year ago we were arriving into the Indianapolis airport from our big move across the world in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia the Thursday before Memorial Weekend, with 2 very tired kids in tow, and us as aching parents from a long 30+ hour journey. How […]
It’s officially been a year since we have left Malaysia and I can finally say that I think my daughter may be coming out of whatever trance the repatriation roller coaster had on her….well, the repatriation roller coaster coupled with being TWO that is.
Having never been an expat prior to this experience, thus never […]
Just last weekend my dear friend Kirsten and I were lucky enough to be sent on a girls weekend by her husband to Waco, TX to visit the fabulous Magnolia Market (yes, her husband is da bomb for doing so). It was AH-MAZING!!! The whole weekend was really….it was a quick 48 hrs but we […]
A couple months ago our baby boy Mac turned ONE. Amazing….seriously, does anyone else feel like time these days is flying by at warp speed?! Does this happen when you turn 30? Or when you become a parent? Or when you have little ones in the house- all.day.long.?? Or is it just a […]
Let me start with a little bit about me. I’ve always been an emotional person, I mean, I AM female- lol! But in all seriousness, its taken me many years in my adult life to look at my God given gift of emotional awareness as a positive, and not a negative. What this does mean though […]
Well it’s officially been over 6 months since we’ve repatriated to the USA from Malaysia and honestly, I’m not sure where the time has gone; I mean heck, I’m not sure what my name is most days, let alone where I live!
But let me back up for a second and quickly talk about the […]
“They say” there are 4 stages of being an expat: 1- The Honeymoon Stage, 2- Homesickness/Complaining Stage, 3- Coping with Your new Normal, & 4- Living with Acceptance.
3 + years later, now having returned to our home country of the USA and having experienced all 4 stages while abroad, I feel like I can […]
Well as per my normal M.O. over the past 6 months, I am severely delayed in writing this post. Life just keeps zipping by and I can hardly catch my breath most days! I guess with a toddler, a newborn, & a move across the world…and all that comes along with that, it’s not surprising […]
This travel post about Bali, Indonesia- an island I’ve dubbed the gem of SE Asia, will undoubtedly be my last blog about our SE Asia travels for quite some time as this was our farewell to SE Asia trip before repatriating to the USA. We are hopeful that we will once again become expats, but […]
Such a huge delay in writing about my little man’s birth story….the past 4.5 months have been a whirlwind between newborn stage, moving across the world, and transiting into a family of 4! So really, its not like I’ve had anything on my plate or anything- LOL! But alas, here is Mac’s story….
