RinR: Living the Dream


Highlights of the week: Today I asked cute munchkin Julia to count from 1-10 for me. She paused and then said "MondayTuesdayWednesdayThursday." Also, I was helping a student who, God bless his heart, has been exposed to four languages and has a host of... Continue Reading →

RinR: Living the Dream and Waiting for my Meet-Cute


As a birthday treat for Leana, we spent this past weekend (thanks to her parents, a friend, and the manager!) at the JW Marriot on Copacabana beach. As she’s leaving me AGAIN this year (she left our old teaching job... Continue Reading →

RinR: Lent and Life and Thoughts and Things


Two weeks into Lent and so far, mostly good on the no wine/fries/chocolate thing. I believe in the Lent where you get one day off a week (if you want) because there are technically 46 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter,... Continue Reading →

RinR: It can only be up from here, right?


When we last left off, I was enjoying AC and wine and Ranch dressing at a hotel bar in Phoenix after my flight to Rio had been canceled. I then jumped into my stars and stripes bikini and commanded the... Continue Reading →

A New Kind of Application for “The Bachelorette”

One of Ryann’s dreams that happily provided the impetus of further travel in Argentina was to drink copious amounts of Malbec wine (her fav) in Mendoza (where it's from). We looked on a map, looked up flight prices and bus... 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.

Gringa Diaries: Balling in BA


After turning Ry's brain to mush through a carefully calculated package plan of sun, drinks, sand, and a diet consisting solely of meat/cheese/starch, and no hurries, no worries here in Rio, we boarded a plane to Buenos Aires. Fun fact... Continue Reading →

R2R: thankful


maybe the best part about any job are the unspoken parts. the bits that aren't explicitly written into your contract. the subtext you create. for me - I am thankful for the many times each day I am reminded what... Continue Reading →

Winesicles.


Giiiiiiirl I have created wine popsicles. And the world will never be the same. You know how you find a recipe on Pinterest, and you're like, "that sounds amazing, but Martha Stewart I am not." (something funny I did this... Continue Reading →

Traveling with Rachel


So I went on a walk, and this squirrel was screaming at me in squirrel talk from this tree (I am terrified of squirrels), and that's when I decided I was going on a road trip. I'm going to Georgia,... Continue Reading →
