Two Years in the Bahamas

Two Years in the Bahamas

Last year, I wrote this post about our first year here.  It’s time to revisit that post as we reached our two year Bahamaversary last week!  (T arrived on July 31, 2013, and KLC and I arrived on August 4, 2013.) My friend J in California grew up as a Navy brat and moved about … Continue reading

One Year in the Bahamas

Wow, we’ve been here a year.   T arrived on July 31, 2013, and KLC and I arrived on August 4, 2013. Highlights of the year Visitors: we’ve averaged about one visitor per month over the past year.  Actually, I just counted, and we’ve had exactly 12 overnight groups or single visitors, and we’ve had … Continue reading

20140627: Thankful Friday

Hi, friends.  When T and I woke up this morning, we thought of so many reasons to be happy! Here’s why, in no particular order: It’s cleaning day!  Clean house! Swimming lessons are almost finished!  (today and three days next week) It’s Friday!  It’s ALSO the last Friday of the month, which means that T’s … Continue reading

Visiting the Lady Doctor: Bahamian Edition

I went to the doctor yesterday, and I thought you might be curious what differences I’ve observed in Bahamian medical care and the care we’ve received in the U.S.  Yesterday’s visit was unexpected, though I was due for a check-up, so it was good for me to get established at an OB/Gyn here.  We’ve been … Continue reading

Enjoying the Slow Life

Enjoying the Slow Life

One of the reasons we decided to come to the Bahamas is that we realized that our life was drastically different with a child.  Why not take that new rhythm of life that was admittedly much slower and transport it to a place that embraces a slower reality? T’s job is in finance.  He also … Continue reading

A Tale of Two New Years

A Tale of Two New Years

This is our second opportunity to ring in the new year as parents. Last year…we woke up amid K’s extended family in Florida on New Year’s Eve and caught a 5:30 AM flight back to Houston with our three week old. This year…we spent New Year’s Eve with T’s parents in the Bahamas. Last year…we … Continue reading

Holidays in the Tropics

Holidays in the Tropics

Our Christmas cards went out on Christmas Eve (many thanks to my sister, Baby K, for printing the address labels and making the post office run to get them out!!), and I included our blog address on them.  I’ve done this for the last two years as well, and I think only two or three … Continue reading
