I’m finally here. I’m all unpacked and settled into my new room, in my new house, in a new country.

Today is my first day of work and an early day at that. With an early start of 6 am, I got ready, helped the kids get ready, took them to school, came back and straightened their rooms, made salad for lunch later, and even cleaned out F’s (the youngest child) toy box. Now I am just waiting around until 2pm to pick up P’s (the oldest child) from school. 

These pictures are of the absolutely amazing view from the house.  I was stunned when Debbie (my boss/host mom) showed this room to me.  Also, of the gorgeous living room and our cute cat.  

Well, I will post more later on what I’ve been up to, but this is just a short post of my first few days. 

Peace, Love, and Wanderlust


It is finally here. I am currently sitting in the Birmingham airport waiting on my 1pm flight to Miami.  It is too surreal and I don’t think it has truly hit me yet that in about 21 hours I will be in Greece. I think it might hit me when I land in London tomorrow morning.  

I am more than excited. And I can’t wait to finally meet Debbie and the 3 children for real. Already met them on Skype, but that doesn’t really count.  

As for the title….13 is my favorite number and I’m hoping today is lucky.  Hoping all my flights are on time and that transitioning from each flight is easy.  I’ve never flown international, so I am a bit nervous.  But typically airports are easy to navigate and there is always someone around to help.  

So wish me luck on my flights! Peace, Love, and Wanderlust.
