It has been a hectic, and festive, couple of weeks. I’m just going to tell it in pictures: Tonight Jess and I went to see On Pointe’s original production of Mary Poppins at the International School of Beijing. It was so much fun. They turned Mary Poppins into a ballet but also had jazz and…… Continue reading Holiday Fun!
I just thought I’d share a brief history of Thanksgiving with all my friends and family across the world on this occasion. Disclaimer: I threw this together in 20 minutes before my kids arrived this morning, it was done entirely from memory, any resemblance to people, places, or things, living or dead, is entirely coincidental,…… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!

Jess and I just booked a weekend trip to Busan at the end of October though. Other than that we’re just saving money for…… Continue reading Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
Had an awesome Sunday, relaxing-with Jess (of course). We met for brunch at East, a really nice hotel near my school, which was amazing, and worth the painful price tag. Then we walked around the area and explored a street I hadn’t been down before. We ended up stumbling into JiangFu Park, which is beautiful.…… Continue reading This and That
I know, it’s been an absurdly long time. I was busy with end of school things and when I finally got through that I was just exhausted and didn’t feel like writing. But I’m home in Kansas City at the moment for a visit so it’s time for a long overdue update. To begin with,…… Continue reading July 25, 2017
