Living in Mexico

Living in Mexico comes with many challenges and many rewards. We have been recipients on both ends of the spectrum since we arrived here on December 1st, 2017.

Wedding Photos

Wedding Photos. They’re here! Oh my goodness, what a beautiful moment in time. I’m sure I sound just like every other person who has been married. But to us and to many others who’ve only been legally allowed to wed for a few years now, it means the world to us! Australian marriage equality was…

Our Wedding

Being Away

Being away from what you’re used to is so incredibly healthy. I’d forgotten. You wouldn’t think it as we’re constantly traveling. We’re nearly always away from what is considered home. It doesn’t make sense that this feels different. But there’s something about being in Europe this time around that is making me whole again. I…

Vocal Rest

Vocal Rest. Have you ever been on vocal rest? It’s not just for singers. You can be put on vocal rest for overuse and fatigue. You’re especially vulnerable if you’re someone who has to raise your voice often at your job: a crossing guard, sports coach, warehouse or factory manager, restaurant floor manager, retail, etc.…
