Week 1 in the Books

I can’t fully describe how awesome this past week has been. Aside from a few (thankfully small) panic attacks and the normal anxiety, my first week at Cornell was pretty stellar. I’ve really enjoyed meeting the faculty and my classmates. The beauty of the campus and knowing the sheer volume of world-class research/development that goesContinue reading “Week 1 in the Books”

Sunrise on Upstate NY

The beauty of the Finger Lakes area rivals any other place we’ve been in the United States—sans maybe Telluride, Colorado. I still miss Okinawa on a regular basis. I have dreams about visiting at least once a week. One thing I liked in Oki is that I didn’t much mind driving for a while toContinue reading “Sunrise on Upstate NY”

Happy Hump Day #2

It’s spring break for Emma so I’m teleworking all week trying to give Chris a chance to work in-between my appointments. I really wanted to get the kids out of the house yesterday evening to look at the cherry blossoms around the neighborhood, so I posted a wear-a-Halloween-costume-and-walk-the-neighborhood-while-doing-a-scavenger-hunt meet-up because that’s what made sense 🤷‍♀️Continue reading “Happy Hump Day #2”

Travel Log: Iejima, Okinawa, Japan

One thing I didn’t do as much of as I would have liked while living in Okinawa was visit the smaller Okinawa Prefecture islands. 2020 was the year!! But then…COVID restricted us to big Oki until our move back to the USA and we missed our chance. For Chris’ 40th birthday in May 2019 weContinue reading “Travel Log: Iejima, Okinawa, Japan”

The Traveling Boobs #3: Flying

Graycie will be four in just a few days! She has quite the travel experience so far…and since we haven’t flown since she stopped nursing a few weeks ago, all of her flying was as a nursing child. Nursing made life MUCH easier for me while traveling because if she’s was going nuts I couldContinue reading “The Traveling Boobs #3: Flying”

Snapshot Sunday #4

Our only family trip back to the states while living in Okinawa was in November 2018 and included time at Disney with my family. I love black and white pictures of fireworks! Love others. Love self. Love coffee. #coffewithasideofcowbell #coffeeandcowbell #coffee #momblog #travel #disney #fireworks #photography

The Traveling Boobs #2: Beaches

I wasn’t a huge fan of the beach until living in Okinawa for a few years. I spent more time on the beach my last year in Okinawa than I had my entire lifetime prior. With kids there are new challenges to going to the beach. Mainly sand…in cracks…butt cracks, front cracks, shoe cracks, carContinue reading “The Traveling Boobs #2: Beaches”
