#56: With Love from Warsaw

#56: With Love from Warsaw

Several years before I moved to Eastern Europe, a dear friend adopted a little girl, and we became good buddies. When I moved, I asked her to bring me a stuffed animal or doll of hers to take with me. She brought me a perfectly-sized-for-travel Mary Poppins doll. Over the five years I lived there, […]

#48: Real Simple

When I lived in Eastern Europe, my friends back here would ask me what I missed or would like in a care package. I enjoy magazines, so that was always on the list. One spring, three different friends of mine paid money to send the same issue of the same magazine, “Real Simple,” all the […]

The first time, I lived in Romania for six months in 1996 (so, five years post-communist…good times). The second time was for five years, beginning […]

#1: A Day in the Life, circa 2005

When I lived overseas, Amy would email me almost every day to check in with me.  She’s awesome like that.  I’ve saved all of those emails, because they include some of our best stories from that era. In August, 2005, here’s what I had to say: OK, so here are two moments that may be […]
