A Glimmer in Her Eye

Hi, hello, welcome back. It’s me…again…the worst blogger ever. I know I hardly ever keep things up to date on here, but that’s because nothing super exciting ever happens. I mean, do you just want to read post after post on 10 hour work days and kitty cuddles? I don’t think so 😉 I’ve decided that this is a great place to document my travels, as well as any exciting changes, but… Read More

Things have been super busy around here (what with moving, traveling, and business things), so I thought I would take you along for the week and show you a small glimpse into my life. In this (fairly lengthy) vlog, you will see a business trip to Warsaw, daily life around Krakow, and everything in-between. So, if you want to experience Poland through an expat’s eyes, go ahead and check it out!

Welcome back! It’s been a crazy month over on my end. For those who don’t know, Austria denied our residence visa (for no other reason than because they could) so we were forced to retreat and go for plan B…which happened to be Krakow, Poland. However, while we were waiting on the Austrian government to make their decision, Andy and I spent three weeks on a “workcation” between Budapest and Bratislava. If… Read More

A few years ago, we went to Prague as part of our 5 year wedding anniversary trip, and ever since that vacation, I’ve been lusting after Budapest. Everyone I talked to said that if you loved Prague, then you would fall hard for Budapest (and vice versa), and seeing as how Prague was one of my favorite cities to date…I was super anxious to book my trip to Hungary and experience the… Read More

Hello, hi, it’s me, the worst blogger of life. So….I know I’ve been super absent for the past few months, but things have literally been the craziest. And I get that everyone says that, but it’s really true! I don’t think I’ve ever been this stressed out, exhausted, and fed up as I have felt this year.

A few years ago while on vacation in Tuscany, Andy and I decided to go on a nature hike surrounded by incredible waterfalls. However, as nature would have it, we got caught in a massive rainstorm and ended up completely soaked after 2 minutes. After a valiant effort (and a few broken umbrellas) we were forced to turn back, which left me disappointed. I knew that I saw some sort of waterfall… Read More

May is always a super hectic month for us. OK, I know I say that all the time, but it’s really true! For as long as I can remember, May has been packed full of activities (think college graduations, weddings, birthdays, and moving) and this year proves to be no exception. Not only do Andy and I celebrate our 7 year wedding anniversary in a few weeks, but May is also the… Read More

If you had one day to live out a fairy tale, where would it be? Think long and hard before answering, because I just might have the answer for you.

Weekends are just my favorite…especially when filled with good food, fabulous company, and a bit of adventure. So, when Andy and I decided to book a little getaway, we naturally decided on a place where we could have all three of the aforementioned things. After looking at the map, our eyes went straight to Ljubljana, Slovenia; a measly 2 1/2 hour drive through the Austrian countryside didn’t sound too bad, and we… Read More

Hello, hi, guten tag. I’m back! Is anyone else having a super crazy spring? It’s so hard to believe that it’s already April 1. Life has been a total roller coaster ride over here, and I feel like I’m just coming up for air, so I thought I would share what I’ve been up to the past few months.
