My HEART is in China today ❤

Some days I miss China more than others and today is one of them. So even though it is Super Bowl Sunday here in Canada and I am anticipating watching the game later (and will make some fun treats for that. It will be a two post day) it was all about Chinese New Year’s Eve.

This is the biggest holiday in China and the New Year’s Eve Family Reunion meal, CCTV New Year’s Eve Gala and Fireworks is “the thing to do” on this evening, which is actually morning and noon time here. So we did. I watched the Gala LIVE, and made some of our favourites including jiaozi, we lit sparklers before our meal ( fireworks is tradition ) and enjoyed our favourites. James even got a red envelope ( hong bao) because he is “young” and also because it is his year… The year of the Monkey. I also chatted and called a few of my Chinese friends and family. I’m so thankful for technology and excellent internet for live streaming.

Oh how I miss China…新年快乐!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
