Songkran 2016: Or Another Year Where I Did Not Take Any Pictures

Okay, so my title is a bit of an exaggeration. No, not the Songkran part, the picture. Just this past week, on April 13th, the Thai New Years Songkran Festival went on in all its awesome glory. What I exaggerated about was the no pictures. The past two years (read about them here and here) I strived to get some… Read more →

I’m on a Podcast!

I have recently become enthralled, okay, addicted to podcasts. I love so many of them in fact that I find myself wanting to do more housework and laundry just so I can put in my ear buds and listen for hours on end. So when Kemkem from Next Bite of Life asked me to be her first interview on her podcast… Read more →

My Favorite Photos This Month

I have been missing sharing my photos with you like I used to with my Monday Montage. So I have decided that every once in a while I am going to use my weekly post to show you some things I have seen during the week again. Today is my photo day! If you also miss seeing my photos every… Read more →

Photo Issues….Help!

I have had computer issues today… In fact, I had almost completed my post about our trip to Koh Lanta, Thailand today and then had to spend an hour and a half trying to figure out how to get the damn photos into my computer so that I could place them in my post. But my computer is out of… Read more →

Traveling Family Time

My in-laws are visiting. For 3 weeks. I know those words could possibly strike fear in the heart of any married person I know. Lucky for me, both sides of the family are pretty awesome and easy to get along with. Whew. This trip is my parent-in-laws first time out of the USA (besides Montreal, Canada, but does that really… Read more →

Holiday Catch-Up

Well, the holiday season is officially over unless you follow Z’s theory that Christmas is a part of  New Years and that it is still New Years because it lasts for 20 days. Where she gets this stuff I have no idea, but it is pretty cute hearing her explain it to you. Regardless of my  4-year-olds theories of holiday timelines,… Read more →

Christmas is Coming: An Essay

It’s getting closer and closer…. Christmas!  To some of you, this may be really exciting, others may feel even more stressed out, and some may feel ambivalent. I am always a little bit of each. Now that we live in Thailand, it takes even more of an effort to make Christmas special. Being a primarily Buddhist country, Christmas seems to… Read more →

Monday Montage: Celebrate

This week was His Majesty the King of Thailands’ birthday and with that comes many celebrations. One of the ways it is celebrated is that it is Thailands Fathers’ Day and there are many street festivals and fireworks. Another way that some celebrate HM the King is by racing sailboats! You may not know this, but one of the things that… Read more →

You ask, I Answer!

I have been living in Thailand for two years now! I know, time flies when you are eating amazing Thai food. Yep, always comes back to food with me. But a food post is for another day. My lovely friend, Terri at The Homeschooling Doctor asked me some questions in a recent comment and I really wanted to answer them. I always… Read more →

MM: Mundane or Not

Life is life no matter where you are. It can be as exciting or as mundane as you choose. The place you live may provide some initial differences, but as one lives in a place, normalcy sets in. This is why I often forget to write about things that may seem interesting and different to those that don’t live here.… Read more →
