Hi there, remember me? It has been so long since I posted here, but I wanted to share some pictures of this year’s feria. Last year, I think I disappointed everyone (especially Amelia) by not dressing up, so I really went for it this year! And although I never got out my “real” camera, I […]

Six Months of Life in Spain

Well, we had a big milestone this week– we passed the six month mark of living in Spain! It felt a bit strange, since six months IS a long time, and it also feels a little like we’ve been here six years– the first months of moving to a new place are so packed with […]

Expat Life: Moving Day

It’s moving day.  So, I am sitting on the floor in my empty bedroom in England right now as I type this.  The movers are here, and I think I had expected to have more to do while they were here, but now I realize that I am just in their way anywhere else. So […]

Expat Life: Saying Goodbye Well

Sigh…  Saying goodbye is one of the hardest parts of expat life.  That’s what it’s been all about for us for the last few days. After almost three decades of goodbyes and hellos (I was an expat kid), it’s still really hard.  Harder than ever, actually, because now it’s not just me saying goodbye.  Watching […]
