Finding Beauty Amongst Grief-Crete




Today we arrived in Crete, Greece. We desperately need this trip as Dragan has been working crazy hours for the past 6 weeks and we have not had any quality time together; in fact we’ve had virtually no time together at all. Read more

Is it Raining or Snowing on the Alps?

Good morning to all of my American friends. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s just after noon here and today is one of those rainy but freezing days where you just want to rain to become snow, as that would be much more pleasant. I can’t seem to motivate myself to go do much other than take Jasper out. I had hoped to ski today, but not in this……! ( Read more

Happy Thanksgiving!

Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving. I wanted to take a few moments, while curled up with a cup of coffee, in my fur robe, to give thanks for this past year.

There have been ups and downs, joy and heartache, love and loss, but I’m so grateful to be here and to have the people in my life with who I am blessed.
I’m grateful for a new husband, who is unconditionally kind, massively handsome and completely charming. I’m grateful we are together on this day, on his first Thanksgiving.
I’m grateful for the 10 years I had with my little girl Bailey Marie , who was my saving grace and a joy in my life, and whose loss left a space in my heart, and I’m grateful for the new puppy we will be bringing home for Christmas.
I’m thankful for my wonderful family, who are giving and lovely. I love them.

And for my friends near and far, old and new…….Here are some images from my year that I cherish.

Can You Go Home Again?

I’ve been in Ohio just over one week, and after living oversees for roughly a year, it is the first time I’ve ever been “homesick”. I’m not talking about homesick for the States, as I’ve experienced that all year long, but I feel homesick for my little spot in the world, straddling the border of France and Switzerland. It’s funny how you start to change when you don’t even know you are changing. Granted, I miss my husband, Dragan, and the routines we were getting into and the fun places we get to visit, but it’s more than that. I miss the scenery (I suppose living in the Swiss Alps spoils you), I miss my home, and weirdly, I miss the struggles I was facing. How bizarre. So, I thought I would create a little list of things you experience as an expat on the Swiss French border when you go back home to your country. This could obviously apply to expats everywhere but as I’m living in one of the most stunning places on Earth, some of my experiences I’ve learned are charmed.

A Swiss Summer’s Day in Fall..Farmers Markets… and FOOD

Hello All. ๐Ÿ™‚ There is a video at the bottom of this post if you don’t like READING. ๐Ÿ™‚ Greetings from our little town.

Today has been just a spectacular day here in Switzerland. It was sunny and 75 and a perfect day for walking, getting gelato and going to the Farmer’s Market. An interesting aspect to living here is that everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, is closed on Sundays. This is quite wonderful but can also be a little frustrating as I’ve always loved shopping on Sundays. Living in NYC, Sundays were often my busiest day for showing clients homes and usually I would reward myself with pampering and shopping after…….sigh….I DO miss that. Especially since a pedicure is over 100 here and most places don’t put your feet in water and, well, you can just FORGET about that foot massage…..

I digress….( Read more
