Hi, and welcome! I’m Teddie, a 27 year old gal living in Antwerp, Belgium with my wonderful husband and our beloved cat. I hope you stay a while to read about our adventures!
In September of 2011 we packed our bags and moved to Antwerp so my husband Garrett could take on a new job opportunity. This was just a month and a half after our wedding! Needless to say, it’s been an exciting ride. You can read more about our move here. And about how we met.
I started this blog as a way of documenting our life abroad and sharing it with our family and friends. We love to travel, so here you will find pictures and highlights from our trips around the world. We are on a temporary expat assignment that is supposed to be only three years… but you never know what could happen. In the meantime, we are soaking it all up and taking advantage of the opportunities in front of us. Belgium is a great central location for travel, so whenever we can, we go somewhere new.
While Garrett goes to work five days a week, I put most of my energy into making sure we have a full life here surrounded by friends and fun. In our house that means lots of get togethers with lots of delicious food. I have always enjoyed cooking and entertaining but moving abroad has given me the time to make it more of a focus. It’s been my saving grace here and a hobby I can’t imagine living without now. Under the tab waffles, you can find some recipes and links to recipes I’ve tried and loved.
Another passion of mine is exercise. I have been casually running for years, but finally started participating in races when we moved to Antwerp. On October 21, 2012 I will run my first half-marathon in Amsterdam!
This blog is an evolving project that will continue to change with our lives. I hope you enjoy learning about what we’re doing and where we’re going, and hopefully get some inspiration to go out on a limb and try something new!
