Go With the Flow

Moving to a new area is exciting, a little scary, and…yes, frustrating. Even in a paradise like Guam, I have had moments where I just wanted some familiarity.  The Hubby and I are in our new home, but it isn’t “home” yet. Our furniture, pictures, favorite games, convenient kitchen gadgets, etc. are still en route to us, and it could possibly take another month for these things to arrive. Trying to find where to get resume’ paper, a hose for the tub (these things are not in the same place!) and spending an afternoon driving around to find these is a bit challenging. Thank God for the beach!

Beautiful and lonely.

A couple of days ago, I was really struggling with loneliness. The time difference between here and Michigan is 14 hours, so pretty much the two times of day I can call home is early in the morning, or late at night. Not exactly the most convenient times.

Wish my family could enjoy this with me.

There is the saying, “this too shall pass.” Belongings will arrive, new friends will be made, and I’ll be a whiz at finding bargains.

Until then, I’ll just soak up the sun and go with the flow.

I love fringe, but hate it when a snag happens!

Thank You, Europe

Hello all,

I apologize I haven’t been posting lately, but the Hubby and I have been mad busy getting ready for our move to Guam (yes, you read that right)! Talk about a big transition!

Since we are visiting family in the Midwest en route, my luggage is quite eccentric. I’ve got boots and flip flops; maxi sundresses and fluffy pullovers. With the temps barely hovering over the zero mark back home, I will be the Layering Queen!

Living in Germany has been an amazing, a wonderful adventure. Never did I think I’d get to experience Paris THREE times, show the wonders of Greek life to my hubby, walk inside the Roman Coliseum, and ride a gondola in Venice.  Along the way I got to rock some fierce fashions, and so I thought I’d share my favorite looks in favorite places.:)

Though I’ll be trading in my moto jackets and leggings for more sundresses and shorts, I pledge to keep taking fashion risks and working my curves, no matter where I go.

Here’s to a new adventure!
