Is it Weird?

Today I ventured out of the apartment for a few hours to meet up with some fellow ex-pats. Is it weird that I’ve never met these people in person (until today), never have even talked to them at all (until today) and yet I still know so much about them? No talking on the phone, no emailing, no texting… yet I […]...continue reading →

One is Silver and the Other’s Gold

Tonight as I was sitting down to blog, I was reminded of that old song I learned in Girl Scouts… “Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other’s gold. A circle is round, it has no end. That’s how long I will be your friend.” Ok, so does this mean new friends will never be as […]...continue reading →

Love / Don’t Love – Down Under

I’m going to an Australian hairdresser. Well, technically he’s English- but he has a salon in Australia (Stevie English) and that’s what matters. You see, for the […]...continue reading →

American Food Makes me Happy

Almost exactly one year ago, I was looking forward to going home to visit family and friends and I was also looking forward to trying this place out –The Counter. I even wrote about my excitement in this post. So we did go once while I was there… and it was good. I wouldn’t say it was the best place I […]...continue reading →

Saying Goodbye

I had to say goodbye to my parents today 🙁 I am lucky that they did stay an extra few days (they were originally supposed to leave Friday) but it’s still hard to say goodbye. The place feels so empty without their bags and clothes and stuff. We had such an amazing time with them here! In addition to the stuff […]...continue reading →
