Hello out there! Before I left the States, I had several friends and co-workers suggest that I start this blog.

Anyone that knows me or my daughters knows that we LOVE to watch movies. It’s not that we go to see every new movie that comes out, but we re-watch our favourites.

I grew up in Michigan, and lived in various areas in Western Michigan until I was 21. It’s an odd pocket of the country, it runs on it’s own time and has it’s own customs.

Must wear […]Read More Pomegranates for Christmas
After I graduated high school, I moved to New Jersey. I was seventeen, and this move lasted approximately 2 months. Overwhelmed by the huge cultural differences (can you use the word culture and New Jersey in the same sentence?)between Michigan and New Jersey, I got up one morning at 0400, packed my little red truck, […]Read More Monday Memories-“There’s a Man in the Closet,” A Ghost Story.
This year is coming to an end. It’s been a pretty amazing year really. I left my career in nursing. Well, just taking a break from nursing… I think. I moved to another continent, to another country and I am trying to learn a new language at the age of 47. We sold our little […]Read More A New Year-New Adventures for Sierra
