four more days

Wow. I can’t believe that I’m moving in four days. It’s really been a great, and totally crazy at times, experience living over here. I’ve made some life long friends, have grown up a little, and learned a lot about how different the world is. I really feel lucky to have had this experience, and […]


Yep, it’s that time of year again. Already. Seems like it just thawed, but here we go again with the white stuff.

oh may….

Where have you gone? Can’t believe it’s already late May - time is flying. The past week was my birthday, and I went and met some friends in what I decided this past trip is my favorite place in the whole world - Istanbul.

Where we ate too much, drank too much, laughed and cried and […]


I’m still not sure what his name is…Baxter and Chauncey have been the top contenders so far, but at some point today I called him “Flapjack” so who knows.
Things I know about him so far:  He finds his leash humiliating.

He doesn’t really mind baths too much:

And isn’t really sure what to think of showers…

And only […]
