This is Goodbye!

Hello all!

We had all moved on, literally! One to Georgia, another (Me!!) to Switzerland!

WE have all being super busy being moms and juggling work and motherhood the best way that we can, and unfortunately we have found no time to share more on our experiences throughout the city. Because our support system is so small as expats, I'm guessing "no time" becomes a norm once we take more roles in life.

WE are very grateful for opportunity of sharing an important phase of our lives, that new beginning filled with a mix of frustration and joy. Thank you for being on the other side reading/ listening!

Until the next time we meet, this is Goodbye!

Life happens... And so does babies!!

Yes, my friends! That's what maternity means sometimes when living abroad: no help, busy days and nights, and lacking time to answer text messages, now imagine writing blog posts! 2 of us had babies and all of us had a hard time to put into words how busy life got!

As life happens and things changed, a whole new world opened up, and Philly got a new nuance... Which I plan to share with you here in the following posts. Although I promise not to convert this blog into a "mommies only space" ;)

It was my first pregnancy, so already a new world to me, but being in America had made this journey even more "new". Throughout pros and coms, overall I enjoyed it a lot. As if it was my first and only pregnancy - who knows, right? And it fulfilled me with pride to have a baby born in the first hospital of America... Super special to me and my husband, since our story starts in Philadelphia. This city has given me a lot, too much maybe!

Some of my friendships got closer while others, some distance - which I assume is very much normal in anybody's life, but crystal clear over expat's lives. Adding to that, new friends came to my life almost in a rescue mission, giving me new sights and the assurance so much needed when figuring out this new role of mine (mommy related).

Summing, there it is: I'm here, I'm back for you, and full of things to tell and shout out loud - and with a beautiful daughter by my side!

See ya soon!!

Embrace American culture through PUMPKINS!

Squash: Butternut, Spaghetti, Pumpkin, Kabocha, yellow, orange, white, green, with stripes...How long does it take you to realize that using a word "pumpkin" can be rather simplistic? The more you know about pumpkins and know how to use them, the higher is your level of americanization. (just kidding but I like to think about it this way).

3 years achievements

All people are different and behave differently in a critical situations. I changed my entire life for the man I love. I left everything I had in my life to move to a completely different environment. So what have happened in these 3 years? Have I got acclimated? Am I happy? Do I still miss something in my life? Or is it still like a waiting zone in the airport?
