Life in Laos through the lens of a diplomatic wife raising twin toddlers.
As a follow up to my previous post about having a tropical garden already in place and beautiful when we arrived in Vientiane, I’ve been adding a few more plants and flowers here and there to put my own stamp on our home. Now that I’ve moved on from last month’s plant buying frenzy and on to finding work, I thought I’d take the time now to show you some beauties. Some are working out and some aren’t, but they all add to this space we are calling home.
And for me personally, it was part of the settling in process which I could have never predicted since at each new home that process can be anything from painting walls, to slip-covering, to new curtains, to hanging pictures, to collecting souvenirs, or gardening. Whatever it is, all of us settling into new homes overseas indulge, settle in, and move on. As trivial as it all may sound, it’s part of the process and we all need to do it.
