My Best Friend Comes To Holland!

Tomorrow my best friend comes to Holland! I am so so excited for her to be here. I haven’t had any of my friends from home visit me here yet (many weddings in the past 3 years) so I feel like a reunion is long overdue. Due to distance and timezones and paychecks...

The Easiest Way To Learn A Hard Language

For the 3+ years I've lived in the Netherlands I have told myself that I want to learn Dutch. Not only because my boyfriend is Dutch, but also because I've always had a fascination with languages. I work in an international environment and truly admire...

Back to Back.

Lately I have been working crazy hours. I love my job, (like, love) but lately it has left very little room for personal life. Time with friends, time with (Skyping with) my family, time with myself even.Someone asked me the other day why I stopped blo...

Take a virtual vacation! Glocal Girl is back from her blog hiatus

The last time that I blogged was early summer. Seriously? It has been an accumulation of many things: work, commuting (how I miss a car!) and just the general avoidance of hopping onto my computer once more after a long day at my desk. But in the past ...

Proud Sister: Graduation Day!

Today is a special day for my family. My younger brother Carlo is officially graduating from college! There are lots of things that I love about my brother, but the thing that I admire the most about him is how he's really grown into a man of his own. ...

I’ll Make You Banana Pancakes

Two things that make my day: when my boyfriend calls me "Darling" (chivalry is not dead) and pancakes. It's the little things, right? Sunday morning the sun was shining gorgeously so I decided to whip up an easy but decadent breakfast of gluten-free pa...

An Expat Mother’s Day

An Expat Mother’s Day

I celebrate as many holidays, birthdays or special events when I'm in the States regardless if it's a little early or even a little late. Just being home in itself is special, but this past trip I was fortunate to be able to give my mom her Mother's Da...

I’m Back! [Beating Airplane Sickness]

Yes! I'm back from the longest (unintentional) blogging break I've had to take so far due to the craziest travel schedule. Since March I feel like I've been living out of a jumbo suitcase and carrying on a long-distance relationship full of Skype dates...

Catching the Train For Easter in France!

I've barely unpacked my suitcase from London and am off again! This weekend we are headed to France, where we will spend Easter with Steven's family. Last year, it was sunny and gorgeous - fingers crossed that it's at least better than the snow we've b...
