Life is a series of wanderings and wonderings.

This collection of musings and confessional anecdotes dates back to our move in 2008 to Cairo and covers the wide-eyed observations of a newly married Ohio girl. Dive into my life of traveling, adventure-seeking, and child-rearing. Explore with me as I figure out the taxis in Cairo, find the courage to order a falafel in broken Arabic, and explore motherhood as an expat in Kuwait, Jordan and Bahrain.
