Ryan has accepted the offer of a seat in the upcoming orientation class for Foreign Service Specialists. Because we are beginning a new adventure which is sure to last the next few decades, Ryan and I have decided to chronicle our journeys and excursions here in this shiny new blog. We have been reading several other FS family blogs (both new and seasoned), and we are gearing up for all of the changes that are about to bombard us. We welcome all of our friends and anyone interested in embarking on the FS life to check in on us from time to time, and to hear about all of the joys, anxieties, and philosophical diversions of our little foreign service family. Also, please chime in with any comments that you may have about our posts.


  1. Thank you! I'll be following along. I wish you both the very best, hard as it is to watch you go. Keep us posted!

  2. I am subscribed to your feed.
