28 Days To Go

Hey there!

Welcome to THIS SIDE, NOW, we're glad you're here.

After years of dreaming that "someday...." we might have the opportunity to live overseas, it's hard to believe that it's really happening. In twenty eight days we leave Washington, D.C. - the place we have called home - and begin the transition to our new home in Hong Kong. I pinch myself daily, just to be sure it's real.

We hope you will join us as we explore life in this big, amazing world, from a different viewpoint - a different angle. Here on this blog we'll post about daily, every-day events as we adjust to our new life. Things we notice, feel, do, see. Who knows where this will lead or where the wind will take us. We are a family of four and are thrilled to be given this chance to provide our daughters with a broader perspective of our world. For the purposes of anonymity - our children will have screen names. But that's another post, another time.

We hope you share thoughts and connections, ask questions, and use this space to share your own stories as well.

Please join us on this adventure.
