La Vie Overseas is back — newly redesigned and living on a new website hosting platform.
Today my blog is five years old. My writing has stagnated a bit a lot since moving to Jordan (as evidenced by the fact that my last post was published a month and a half ago). But I’ve been writing.
I promise I’m still writing. It’s just been a month or so. I’ve been kind of busy. So busy that I almost forgot my annual blog anniversary (or “blogiversary”) post. Today my blog is four years old.As was the case when I marked my first, second and third blogiversaries, a lot has happened in the lastContinue reading “Four-Year Blogiversary”
One positive thing that has come from my blog (other than meeting friends on the internet) has been the occasional opportunity to help future Eligible Family Members (EFMs) and Members of Household (MOHs) — in other words, future Foreign Service spouses/significant others who are contemplating or have made the decision to pack up and move around theContinue reading “Advice for Future Foreign Service Spouses”

I’ve been reading Ania’s blog since before we embarked on our FS journey and had been meaning to ask about a Salvadoran edition of Notes from the Field once we wereContinue reading “Notes from the Field: El Salvador”
My blog is two years old! As was the case when I marked my first blogiversary last year, a lot has happened in the last year: I started a new job. I turned 30. We bid on — and received — our onward assignment. I got a job at our next post. We spent our secondContinue reading “Two-Year Blogiversary”
Today is Spanish Friday: Blog post in Spanish; English translation below.Una de los primeros pensamientos que yo tenía cuando me di cuenta de que vamos a Afganistán para nuestro próximo puesto fue sobre mi blog: ¿Seguiré escribirlo?
Despite all the repeated warnings, I foolishly let my Google Reader disappear into oblivion without backing up any of my subscriptions onto another service (like Feedly, which I use now). This necessitated some searching of the interwebs to remember all the blogs and sites I had followed so I could resubscribe. Life is hard.
One year later, still writing.I’ve been through A LOT of changes since starting this blog one year ago: I got married. I quit my job in DC. I learned a new language. I moved to El Salvador. I got a new job.
