Always take the stairs

Three days into my 39th year and I am already learning little lessons that will impact my life in the biggest of ways. 1. Not knowing the destination is part of the fun.  Coco scheduled a quick birthday trip for the two of us to take a few days away from home before Mama & Papa… Continue reading Always take the stairs


Art on the Straße

If you've known me for more than 30 minutes, you'd know I am a total yarnoholic. I walk into a yarn or craft store and the euphoria sets in. I'm a giddy 5 year old gazing at a chocolate fountain. When I open the door, all I see are stacks of worsted weight and shelves of alpaca.


Welcome to Vienna

Our adventure opens as I sit in a hotel room, thousands of miles away from home.... Our old home. This morning, as I've done every day for the last three weeks, I woke up in Vienna. Austria.


Homeless and still happy

We've been living in Vienna for 21 days now. Three whole weeks living in a hotel room, managing the dogs, school, work and getting to know a foreign yet beautiful city. So we're not exactly homeless.


“It’s a maximum of 8 weeks, ma’am.”

Our five year plan always included a move to Europe. After three years in Boston, our plans moved up with an incredible opportunity for my wife and I. Her bucket list city has forever been Vienna.
