The Championships

There is nothing like celebrating Independence Day at the most British event ever. Scott and I went to Wimbledon on the 4th of July! It is the sporting event of dreams.

When in Milan

It’s been 10 years since I have been to Italy! I know poor, sad me. But 10 years is a long time to go without homemade pasta, pizza and Italian men. 10 years ago looked something like this… Young, single with my girlfriends pretending to be in a tampon commercial.

Culture Shock

Once returning from England I started to settle into my new routine of  job hunting, the occasional evening golf session and my horrible driving lessons that usually end in a few choice words and minor tantrums. Scott says we will laugh about it some day, but all I want to do is drive into whatever… Read More Culture Shock
