I am at a stage in my life when my two beautiful daughters are grown and on their own and my husband and I are enjoying the empty-nest syndrome….an empty nest that has over the past 9 years been intermittently disrupted by this little cutie.Yes, while most couples our age are obsessing over their grandchildren and babysitting those same grandchildren, David and I have had the pleasure over the years of watching this little fluffy-butt while our youngest daughter was traveling for work or on vacation or living overseas. A few months ago, she went back to Korea to live with her “Mom” and we have an empty nest again. But every blog needs a little cuteness now and then, so let me officially introduce to you, Lane Continue reading
When you don’t want to do all the work of touring around by yourself in a new city armed with a good map and a list of “sights to see”, then it’s time to let someone else do the work for you. It’s time to take a tour. While I was in Seoul, a city with a US Army base in the middle of the city…I took advantage of taking several tours hosted by the USO (United Service Organization).The first tour I took was what they called the Historic Sights Tour. So at my appointed day and time, I showed up at the USO and hopped on the little tour bus with 7 other people and our guide and we were off. Continue reading
Did you miss me? Where have I been the last two months? What have I been doing? Most anyone who reads this blog knows where I was….and most likely saw me and my husband too! I’ve got lots to catch up on, so let’s get started…
So in September, David and I took a trip back “home” to Virginia. (Why did I put that in quotation marks?….well, because right now Bydgoszcz, Poland is home…at least for the next few months…more on that in a bit). The main purpose (at least in my husband’s eyes) was to get home for the Virginia Tech-Ohio State football game..but we had a few other things to cram into the first two days back before the game.

Yes, that is the first question that people asked – You’re going where?….along with “You mean people actually move to Poland?” Well, yes they do! And we did. We don’t know how long we will be here, it might just be a few months, maybe longer, but this could be our “once in a lifetime” experience of living overseas.
I decided to start a blog because I have way too many thoughts rattling around in my brain to post on facebook. And if you know me at all, you know that when I travel I take a ton of pictures (in two weeks, I’ve already taken over 500 pictures). My instagram would be clobbered. This seemed like to perfect way to share life here in Poland with all our friends and family.
My first real post will be coming soon….Now to just figure out how to start uploading some of those pictures and we’ll be off on the adventure….
I hope you’ll come along for the ride too…..It might be bumpy, but it’s sure to be fun!
