12 Tips for Your (Overseas) Kitchen

9 Comments
We got to eat… so, we got to cook.  Gone are the days of a can of this and a jar of that. I feel at times I am cooking over an open flame just like my forefathers (or really, foremothers) did once off the Mayflower. Some days dinner preparation can be daunting.  But over […]

Culture Shock…Again!?!

My husband and I found ourselves fighting a lot more. About nothing really. About everything actually. So we call a time out and phone (or Skype) a friend. Thankfully we have people who we trust who we can call when we need help. And so after I blabber on for about 15 minutes about not […]

I Love You, I Love You Not

Common Mistakes Made When Flying With Infants

Believe it or not I am actually starting this post on a plane. I am not an expert on much of anything except for maybe flying with infants (or just kids in general but this post is focusing in infants). Do you know that my youngest bundle of joy logged 9 plane rides before he […]
