Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog!
I am a lifelong Third Culture Kid (TCK) of Lebanese origin and I’m happily married to a fellow TCK (which makes life as an adult TCK a lot more fun!). I have never lived in Lebanon, but my heritage has always been a big part of my life. I usually present myself as Lebanese-American, but that covers only a small part of my story. I grew up in France, Australia, Philippines, Mexico, USA and Cyprus, and I’ve studied/lived in the UK, France and USA as an adult.
I have always loved writing and when my husband and I moved to the U.S. a few years ago, I started this blog. It is an ever-growing collection of non-fiction prose, poetry, occasional book reviews and photography, chronicling my experiences growing up as a TCK and adapting as an adult TCK.
I hope my blog can make you think, learn, or simply smile. One of my favorite parts about blogging is being able to share and communicate with others, so please feel free to leave any thoughts, comments or suggestions – I look forward to hearing from you!
