RinR: Thanks and Thoughts and Things


I love Thanksgiving. I love looking on facebook and instagram and seeing everyone get mushy about those they love, and taking a solid timeout from the angry-elfness that seems to be infecting the interwebs lately. I love the family photos... Continue Reading →

RinR: t g i f


Four hours with children, a few hours in staff meeting about the children, and then I don't know what you'll be on, but I'LL BE ON VACAAAATIONNNNN!!!!!! Praise Jesus for the speed with which this first quarter has flown by.... Continue Reading →

RinR: Snoop, Big Jesus, Futebol, and inappropriate songs.


Oi. I just had the best weekend ever. Like, super Brazilian adventure weekend: Almost died in a taxi, got nauseous on a bus ride, was heckled on the street, saw a monkey, sweated out my eyeballs, was in the middle... Continue Reading →

RinR: The Week in Things


Last week was my birthday, so I am older and wiser and can dispense much wisdom. Here's a tip: get in shape when you're young, kids. It's so much harder when you're older. I'm trying to do this workout/eat-right plan... Continue Reading →

time capsule: thirty-one


time for another round of "the last year of your life." For a good time, check out last year's thoughts on turning thirty and the year of 29. Seeing growth in yourself is important. And makes you laugh. I highly... Continue Reading →

RinR: Sprang Breaking


Ah, Spring Break. An absolutely necessary week off for teachers so we don't dropkick students off our buildings.  YES YOU NEED A PENCIL. It's funny how different Spring Break is now that I'm a 30 year old teacher. When I... Continue Reading →

RinR: Easter as an Ex-pat the bunny


Holidays are funny. Growing up, you can never imagine doing them any way other than what your family does. To me, Easter means waking up, baskets, finding eggs, a special breakfast with specific biscuits (Grands Flaky!), bacon, mimosas when you... Continue Reading →

about being single on valentines day.


Normally in the States, I'm so jacked up on conversation hearts that I can be pretty numb to the pain of being single on Valentines Day. And every day. All day. Because it is. It's okay to love being single to celebrate the heck out of it, and to also acknowledge that it can be really, really hard.

RinR: Playing Tour Guide, NYE, Cheese Penis, a Friend


My first visitor! I think a place truly starts to feel like "home" when you have someone visit and you get to play tour guide. I'm fulfilling a lifelong dream of mine to be one of those "Jungle Cruise" guides... Continue Reading →

the most important things i said all year


disclaimer: I often pretend to not know what words mean, like "portion control" or "inside voice" so these might not sound important but they are important. Jan 8 - Scientific question: Has anyone, ever, in the history of time, finished an... Continue Reading →

RinR: hollydaze


In some ways, it doesn’t feel anything like Christmas. It’s certainly not cold. I'm sitting on an ice pack, drinking a sweating margarita, directly in front of a fan on a setting so high my eyelids feel like they're peeling off my skull. I haven’t seen or smelled a single Christmasy smell (I’d settle for a tiny pine tree swinging from a rear view mirror).

RinR: Feliz Natal do Brasil


Nothing is quite so beautiful and terrible all at the same time as an all-school Christmas musical. Our first rehearsal was Wednesday, and I was shaking with silent belly laughs, tears streaming down my cheeks from watching the little kids perform.
