365 Photo Project – May 2014

Another month has flown by and life continues to march along. May has brought more work for Brian, new classes for me, a nineteenth birthday for my Boy, and a new opportunity for my Girl. Bring it on, I say! (Except the work for Brian, I think he already has too much.) Here’s what we’ve […]

365 Photo Project – April 2014

Travel. It doesn’t feel like travel anymore. We live here. It still doesn’t feel like home sometimes, but it’s more familiar now. Life is pretty normal, full of things like work, laundry, riding my bike and figuring out what’s for dinner, with the occasional weekend in the mountains with friends. Those weekends in the mountains […]

365 Photo Project – March 2014

March. March should be spring time. Warmer weather, longer days and flowers starting to bloom. We did get a few blooming flowers on the Jacaranda trees, but other than those purple beauties our March was upside down. Will we ever get used to the seasons in the southern hemisphere? I really don’t think so, those […]

365 Photo Project – February 2014

February came and went like a flash, but a really, really eventful flash. Because, dude! We went on vacation to the States! We went to the States because of the Polar Bears. You see, Brian needed to learn how to cross country ski so he can get away from the Polar Bears because he’s going […]

365 Photo Project – January 2014

Another January has come and gone. Zoooooom! There it went. It’s been a quiet month filled with small things keeping me close to home, but I’ve still found happiness in getting those small things done. This life of international living can sometimes feel very normal. I have chores just like I always have. I still […]

365 Times Two – Because I Can

I just finished my second 365 photo project. How did I do? Pretty well. I skipped a few days this past year, but I managed to finish strong. So when it came time to decide if I would do it again this year, I don’t think I really even considered not doing it again. My […]

365 Photo Project – Week 50

Well hello there, week fifty! Where did you come from? Contrary to the evidence, I have not let my 365 photo project fall by the wayside. I have been (sort of) diligently taking my “Through” photos (mostly) every day. Editing and posting them? That’s another story entirely. I have learned a few things with this […]

365 Photo Project – Week 26

Here we are half way through the year, which seems fitting given our circumstances. We’re in the middle again. Living in two different countries, in the middle of a move. We’re also half way through our big vacation, and not fully settled anywhere. But it’s been a great week! I’ll say it again, I think […]

365 Photo Project – Week 24

We cleaned, we packed, we left. This was a week of transition between worlds. Again. Our stay in Brazil has temporarily come to an end. We spent the first half of the week taking care of business in Jundiai, running errands, exploring nearby streets, and enjoying our last tastes of local cuisine.   We’ve put […]

365 Photo Project – Week 23

We’re twenty three weeks into the year. How did that happen? It’s June already and my brain is telling me it should be getting warmer. It should be summer but it’s not. It’s winter here in the southern hemisphere. It’s one of those things that I could never wrap my mind around, this switch of […]

365 Photo Project – Week 22

It’s June. How did that happen? When we left England in March, it was winter. When we go back there in two weeks it will be summer. How did the time pass so quickly? Week twenty two, nearly half way through the year, and we’re still going strong. We’ve been in our new apartment for […]

365 Photo Project – Week 21

We’re really starting to feel at home here in our new city. We know where things are, we have made some new friends, we’re relaxing into the routine of Brian’s work schedule and the rhythm of life in the hotel. Why not shake it up a bit?   After all, when you’re living in a […]

365 Photo Project – Week 20

Between the chaos surrounding our last minute trip to the US and maddening internet issues back here in Jundiai, I ended up completely skipping the linkup for weeks 18 and 19. Blogger fail. BUT! We’re back on track! Our ridiculously slow internet in the hotel is working today (sort of), and we’ve had a quiet […]

365 Photo Project – Week 17

I spend a lot of my time walking while I explore Jundiai. It’s a very walkable city, with (mostly) decent sidewalks, a lot of tall buildings for reference, and a downtown area that was laid out in a grid system. So far I’ve only gotten lost once, and even then I still had a good […]

365 Photo Project – Week 15

The evenings here in Jundiai are beautiful. We have a great view of downtown from our balcony, with this church directly in front of us. We think it’s a convent. There seem to be a lot of stooped and ancient nuns coming and going from the house attached to the yard behind the church and […]

365 Photo Project – Week 14

How are we doing after a week in our new town? We are loving it! The warm weather is on the top of our lists of things that give us the happy. I don’t think either of us realized just how much the cold weather of northern England was affecting us, but now that we’re […]

365 Photo Project – Week 12

It’s been a week of waiting. A week of nothing planned. A week of staying home and avoiding the cold except for two much needed days out to have lunch with friends. Next week is a big one though. A day trip to London to pick up my passport, and a flight to Sao Paulo […]

365 Photo Project – Week 11

I worked again this week with Brian and remembered why I do, and don’t, like having a regular full time job. I can tell you with full conviction that I have a deep hatred of crawling out of a warm bed and facing a cold day while it’s still fully dark outside. If it’s dark […]

365 Photo Project – Week 10

It’s been a week of working long hours, thinking in two languages, getting up way too early and remembering what it’s like to have a regular job. What an adjustment! Where are my lazy mornings? My slow cup of coffee at 9am? Where is my time to tidy up, do the dishes, take care of […]
