AboutMe

Welcome to my blog!

I might be 30 years old, but I’m still trying to figure this life stuff out. It can be crazy and confusing at times, but also pretty amazing. I’m always striving to be and do better, but also coming to grips with the fact that I’m not perfect, and that is perfectly okay.

Some things you will read about here: My family (ie my dog Mango and my husband Ross), yoga, running, arts & crafts, friends, adventures, traveling, fashion (or lack-there-of), all sorts of food, warranted and unwarranted advice, friends, and more.

Thanks for keeping up with me…

  1. You know, I don’t think living abroad for one year to teach children makes you an ex-pat, does it? That is unless you are not planning on coming back … which poses a huge problem for me …

    • According to a very reliable source (Wikipedia) An expatriate (in abbreviated form, expat) is a person temporarily or permanently residing in a country and culture other than that of the person’s upbringing or legal residence. The word comes from the Latin term expatriātus from ex (“out of”) and patriā the ablative case of patria (“country, fatherland”).

  2. Interesting! I did not know this. It sounds so easy to be an ex-pat then. To me, “ex” usually denotes a falling out, or dislike of the previous party, so I assumed it meant you had to at least loathe your old country a little. For instance I am not planning to go back to any “ex” boyfriends.
