Life in Laos through the lens of a diplomatic wife raising twin toddlers.

    Congrats my friend! So now that you’ve been freshly pressed…what’s the secret?

      Thanks friend! The secret still eludes me but to answer your email question, I do what I feel strongly compelled to do and I do it as and when I have time. Sometimes that’s five minutes in between cooking, cleaning, running errands, sorting, packing, while on hold with airlines, etc. Sometimes an hour bc I can’t do anything else *unless* I write or edit photos, and I leave the dishes in the sink, the laundry unfolded, emails unanswered, homework undone. In many ways it’s a distraction from many things in my life, yet in equal number of ways a necessary part of my life. Even more so now that this recognition is so inspiring!

      Wow! You just made my day for a second time ;). I noticed a few “likes” for this post in a row popping up in my email (yes, I’m that nerdy that I receive ALL likes, comments, etc. in my email), and I thought, “What’s going on?” First I thought they were ping backs because someone else had linked to it, but when I checked it wasn’t so. And then I thought, “Noooo, couldn’t be.” and checked Freshly Pressed and voila!

  12. wow! congratulations!!!!

      I really appreciate everyone’s inspiration and support to blog. This has been such a great community to be a part of. Uh oh…the Oscar speech is starting to seep out of me (yikes!)…and now the sorting and packing I planned for this afternoon definitely won’t get done!

      • travelladywithbaby

        You won’t be getting any packing done for a couple of days! I love Oscar speeches, wasn’t it Sally Field “you love me, you really love me! – I have a packing list for you. Will pass it on!

        Unfortunately, I’m more the Halle Berry type when it comes to these kinds of things. Would LOVE to get a hold of your list! Thank you!

      I am so grateful. It made my day, especially after returning from crazy Costco shopping for our shipment to Laos and running a zillion other errands this morning.
