How To Dress Your Children For Snow!

I grew up in the south, right outside Nashville, Tennessee, in Gallatin. I remember we would get one to two good snows a year. I say that lightly because heavy snow in Gallatin (2 inches) would be considered a dusting in most towns where it snows a lot. It wasn't until we moved to Slovenia (In the Julian Alps) that we started to realize that we were dressing our children all wrong. We would walk around downtown Ljubljana, and all the children would be so happy, running around smiling, having the times of the[...]

Zurich Christmas Market

Zurich, Switzerland Christmas Markets

Let me say that Zurich, Switzerland, Christmas Markets are like stepping into a scene from a Lifetime movie! For the first time in my traveling experiences, I felt like I was in a movie. The lights were hung just perfectly above the entire Christmas market. The Christmas music was playing, heaters and fire pits, and the mood were just right. Everyone was smiling and in great spirits; I heard so much English and met a few Americans! Now for all the details on our 24 hours in Zurich! If I'm being honest, we on[...]

Most Common Questions, I Get Asked About Living In Lithuania

When we moved overseas the first time in 2017 I had never left the United States… I didn’t even have a passport. I honestly had no idea what to expect and a lot of the things that I thought were going to be an issue weren’t an issue at all! Now that we live in Lithuania I have found our family and friends asking us the same questions over and over. So I thought why not make a blog post and answer all the questions we have been getting daily about living in Lithuania. What side of the road do you driv[...]

Parenting in Lithuania

When we lived in Slovenia, I wrote a blog post about parenting in Slovenia. Now that we live in Lithuania, I thought it would be fun to write about my experiences in Lithuania. Much like Slovenia, it's not uncommon to see children Nolan's age 9 walking to school by themselves or taking the bus alone. Kids have more freedom in Lithuania than they do in the United States. Children in Lithuania also don't start grade school until they are age seven which is much different than the US at age 5. The older boys[...]

Our Life in Bags…Again

If you've followed my blog for a while you'll know that when we started this life, one of my first blog posts was called Our Life in Bags.

As a disclaimer, some of the links in this blog may be affiliate links... but I promise I love all the items I'm recommending and personally own them myself! The first set of movers came and they took 1,000[...]

The Beginning… Life in Lithuania.

It's been a week since we arrived in Vilnius, Lithuania. I can't believe I'm typing that... it's crazy how quickly time flies when you're having fun and trying to figure out life in a different country. Our first week looked like Moving into our new house!

We had great sponsors they packed our frig full of great food and brought some things ove[...]
