Life’s been a little exciting over here lately. I started a new job, we visited our family back in California for Thanksgiving, and oh, we moved 2 weeks ago! Moving is hard work, and I’ve been so busy packing and unpacking that I haven’t had time to fully share my excitement! So let me quickly … More We moved!
I am the kind of person that jumps without thinking. Saying “Yes, let’s do it!” is the easy part, and then later, when it is too late, it dawns on me that maybe this is scary. Maybe I’m not ready for this. Maybe I should have thought it through first. That’s where I’m at right now. … More The Times They Are A-Changin’
This is part 2 of our summer road trip (read part 1 here). Last summer, we went to the 51st state with Andrew’s parents for a 5 day road trip. By 51st state, I mean Ireland. As we discovered, Ireland in July is crawling with American tourists – because Americans in general LOVE St Patrick’s … More 5 Day Ireland Road Trip
We put on our tour guide hats last summer, and planned a jam-packed two weeks in the British Isles for Andrew’s parents. They had never been to UK before, so we started things off in London – because a trip to England would not be complete without seeing the city. Andrew’s parents are both teachers, … More 4 Day Scotland Road Trip
Three years, wow. It’s hard for me to believe that we’ve lived in England for that long! I’ve made a tradition of writing anniversary posts ever since we moved to the UK (read the first one here, and the second one here), so I felt obliged to mark the passing of another year with a … More Three Years In England
“God created the world but the Dutch created the Netherlands.” – Rene Descartes We went to the Netherlands for a week back in April, and I crossed another country off my list. Thirteen countries down, 17 more to go to reach 30! Andrew says travelling with me is starting to get easier, lol. I wouldn’t say … More The Netherlands
This post is dedicated to my fellow renters out there. I see you, living with poor design choices that you didn’t make, and can’t change without risking your security deposit. You stare at perfect homes on pinterest, and dream of customising your own house one day. Well maybe you don’t, but I certainly do. I … More A Renter-Friendly Kitchen Makeover
Out of all the rooms in our house, the bedroom has been the biggest pain to decorate. I’ve faffed around in here for 2.5 years, and it just might be finished now! In my post last week, I shared how I chose that lovely canvas print from Photowall, and this week is all about the … More New & Improved Bedroom Tour
The bedroom got a few upgrades recently that I’m pretty excited about. We finally got around to buying a new mattress in December, and although it hasn’t changed the appearance of the room much, it’s made a huge difference as far as our sleep is concerned! The space above the bed was another area that … More New Artwork For the Bedroom
We needed a change of scene before Christmas -something completely different from home. I think both of us were missing California when we decided on Lanzarote, and it showed!
We stayed in Puerto del Carmen near Los Jameos Playa, and beached. it. up. We filled up on tapas and enjoyed the sunshine. … More Chill-out In Lanzarote
