We arrived in Phnom Penh in late July. It began as one of the softest landings we've had. The trans-Pacific flight was predictably brutal but our excitement overshadowed all of that. We went to temporary housing for ten days, happy to have an immediate internet connection and access to two refreshing swimming pools. The Bushbaby had recently hit her stride … Continue reading finding peace
Where were we now? Ah, yes. Reeling in one massive anchor and splashing southbound along the Chilean coast for a two week vacation through the fjords, around Cape Horn and ending in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Halloween faded quickly into a pre-birthday, weekend-long yoga intensive at my … Continue reading tradition ambition
Despite our best efforts to encourage a more interesting and unique costume, our 3 year old Bushbaby was bitten by the pink princess sparkle fairy bug and she has got the fever. Turns out that she has a mind of her own with a strong will to match. I was really hoping to trump last year's Debbie Harry … Continue reading pink enough
