A Tribute to My Friend

Let me tell you a story about a beautiful lady. It was a hot and humid Thursday afternoon.  The Rugby Star and I were already over- and underwhelmed with our new school in Bahrain and we were itching for a little liquid relief from the heat and the madness.  The nanny said she would gladly … Continue reading A Tribute to My Friend


48 Hours in Belgrade

When I left for the Dominican Republic, way back in 2002, everyone I knew (no word of a lie) said, 'I'm coming to visit you!' My parents, my sister, and my aunt came- all at the same time, so it was technically like having one visitor.  No one else showed up. When I moved to … Continue reading 48 Hours in Belgrade

A visit to Zlatibor, Serbia- Gostilje Waterfall and Stopica Cave

#MySundayPhoto-My Brave Girl

We went to the wine festival in Sremski Karlovci this weekend.  My brave girl walked right up to the python and asked to pet it.  And she has now decided that, in addition to the 100 cats she wants to own, she would also like a pet snake.  

#MySundayPhoto- Candy Floss in Topčider Park

My little Batgirl eyes a stick of candy floss that is as big as she is!  Don't worry- she didn't eat it all herself.  She had some friends to help her out!

Out of the Desert (The Last 25 Days in Bahrain)

So... we had a lot of drama on our last day in the desert.  I'm not going to go into it yet, as I have a lot of bad words that I still want to say about the whole situation and the time is not quite right.  I'm so angry and hurt by the issues … Continue reading Out of the Desert (The Last 25 Days in Bahrain)
