My name is Wendy. I am married to a senior Diplomat with whom I share 5 children. I have an adopted Tijuana street dog named Lexi who inspires me in a way no human could (AKA – Diplo-dog). I travel much, much more than a person with a fear of flying should be allowed as I work in a different city that my husband. I dance naked during the full moon (OK not really, but perhaps I have your attention).
So why do I blog? I have been asked that a lot lately. It began as an easy way for me to communicate the experience of leaving our last Diplomatic post in Tijuana, and documenting our cross-country trip home. What I discovered along the way was it is a great way to connect. Not just with family & friends who were my original followers, but also ex-pats, diplomatic & military spouses who move often and may be experiencing some of the same logistical hurdles, emotional meltdowns, but also the rewards that I have.
To be fair, I have no writing credentials, but I do have a sense of humor (or so I have been told) and I do write from the heart. Quite frankly, I think we all need to be able to laugh at the things that challenge us, and I hope I inspire you to do the same. As the wife of a Diplomat, I prefer turning lemons into lemonade — so much better than crying over spilled milk 🙂
