Things I Learned In 2018

Hey friends! Happy New Year.

I'm a little late on my annual round-up. We've been traveling pretty nonstop for the last three weeks. The holidays were great, but it's so nice to be back in the regular work/school rhythm. Opened up my trusty laptop this morning and it was like, Ahhhhh, hello, old friend.

Things I Learned in 2018

1. Just when you think you’re settled...things change. When I first wrote this list two years ago, we were living in Portland. Last year, Boston. Now, Basel. Hoping we can stay in place for a year or two (or ten) before moving again. It's been a whirlwind few years.
2. Raise your kids with a spiritual upbringing they don’t have to unlearn. THIS IS EVERYTHING.

3. Living among expats is like being a freshman in the dorms again. You’re all clueless, brand-new, thousands of miles from anyone you know and love, and eager to make new friends. The openness is refreshing. Might we always be so candid and receptive.
