I am originally a California native, turned Third Culture Kid, when I moved to Hong Kong at the age of 11. I first met my husband, Andy, in high school at Hong Kong International School, though we certainly never anticipated romantic involvement at the time! Ten years went by before we reunited at a mutual friend’s wedding and found ourselves saying our own vows just 10 1/2 months later.
He is my best friend in the whole world. My rock, partner in crime, comic relief, and some time dance partner. (Think..ridiculous white man dancing around the kitchen!) We have many adventures together. Mostly in the great and bewildering world of parenting these days…but we do still get out for our own adventures from time to time. Here we are on some explorations we managed on a business trip Andy was sent to in Switzerland:
I am a ‘retired’ elementary school teacher who now stays home with our two goobers:
These girls bring me immeasurable joy (as well as the occasional need for a bubble bath and a glass of wine!).
What else brings me joy? Food (cooking, eating, I like it all), photography (I didn’t say I was any good, but I enjoy it!), travelling, family adventures, friends, and most of all God who has shown me true Joy comes from Him no matter what circumstances life brings.
We currently reside in Utah and are having fun exploring all the hiking, camping, and natural beauty this state has to offer before Andy’s job moves us elsewhere. And, for this warm weather girl, I’m quite proud of how I’ve adapted to life in a climate where it snows!
This blog is an outlet for me to catalog adventures in all of the above. Thank you so much for checking out the site! If you share any similar interests, feel free to pop by and see what we’ve been up to, leave a comment with your thoughts, or sign up to follow!
