I’m a native (southern) Californian who moved to the DC area five years ago. Once I got comfortable on the east coast, my husband uprooted me and we landed in Amman, Jordan. While I was in living in Amman, I had to readjust to life minus working, a struggle I now find amusing (as I’m working full-time and fantasizing about free time). As a result of all of my free time while in Amman, I created this blog to keep my sanity and to document the crafts, baked goods, and things that occupied my time. I enjoyed the traveling part, but the day-to-day idiosyncrasies were trying at times. In spite of my annoyances and in hindsight, I experienced and saw some amazing things that I might never have had the opportunity to see had we not lived abroad. This blog chronicles many of these trips and treks that we took and it continues to follow my life back home in the DC area.
