About

Hello, I’m Barbara.

By day I'm a financial analyst.  I’m also a mother and a wife. I’m always trying to find the perfect balance of the three even though I often fail miserably.

I met my husband in South Carolina in 2006 in the most romantic way ever – at work. In April 2008 my life got flipped upside down when I expatriated to France to join my, then, soon-to-be husband. At the end of 2009 we welcomed our little bundle of joy.

I’m a Southern Girl at heart even though I grew up in Arizona. I hate cold weather and snow. I find myself being homesick for the South even though I’ve lived longer in France.

I’m a lover {addict} of coffee, chocolate and all things sweet! I have the best friends and family in the world and consider myself blessed to have each one of them in my life.

I love to read, write, cook and experience new things. We love to travel as a family and spend most of our free time discovering new places. My son has seen more of the world before the age of 2 than I did by the age of 25.

I’m fluent in 3 languages, but the truth is that the better I become in one, the more the other 2 suffer. At any given time you can hear four languages being spoken in our house, while half the time I don’t have a clue what is going on.

I started blogging over 2 ½ years ago to document my journey abroad for my friends and family. In fact, I just wanted a way to keep everyone informed without having to write out massive impersonal emails.

I write about expecting the unexpected, adapting to the unfamiliar, and making a fool of myself in multiple languages and cultures.

So, feel free to follow me on my journey through this crazy thing I call life.
