Are you getting ready for a big move and your to do list is longer than ever? The packing, the planning, the goodbyes, the learning, the paperwork…
Are you tempted to check out from where you are now and just throw yourself into your next adventure?
Are you adapting to new routines, a new place, a new culture? Do you hope to work abroad someday?
Are you in a season of transition and feeling a little (or a lot) overwhelmed? Could you use some tips on travel with kids, or on preparation for an overseas move?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, there is definitely something here for you!
Hi, I’m Colleen, a Canadian expat wife and mom, currently living in Argentina.
My four children have learned to walk on a three different continents. So, I have lived through a few periods of transition.
Some days with grace, and other days, not so much.
My husband and I joke that our hobby is relocation.
Our challenge is to live here. Where we are now.
To be present in this community, even while planning for the next move.
That challenge is not unique to us expat types. We all have times when we’d rather check out and escape our lives for a bit. So, this is a space for sharing:
- truths that help me resurface when I’m drowning in overwhelm
- insights that remind me of what matters
- travel tips that help me stay sane and enjoy the journey (even with toddlers!)
- reflections, usually about God, that still my heart when my mind is spinning
I hope you’ll join me.
Let’s pack a little lighter, prepare a little better, enjoy the journey a little more, and be present wherever we find ourselves today.
Living well wherever we are. To your inbox.
