‘Carlos’

When I grew up in the Netherlands we were not judged on what to wear to a pool or at the beach when we were kids. My parents let me walk around in only a swim bottom for years and I didn’t even know better. It wasn’t strange and most of my friends (girls) did…

‘How to stay happily married’

“Be supportive, be an encourager, dream together, live life together and most important… be the friend that they never had.” Laura Denissen Today is a special day; we look back at 5 different countries, 21 homes, a psycho cat and a beautiful daughter of 4. We were standing 7 years ago next to each other…

Mad City

When it comes to cold weather, Wisconsin doesn’t mess around. It’s just cruel and unforgiving… But I still give my friends the benefit of the doubt and I will still believe the “summer” is coming. So right now, we are living in the largest city of de State of Wisconsin… Milwaukee. I thought it was…

Trip to the Beach

The best part of living in the United States is that you can travel endless and discover the coolest places. A few months ago my daughter and I were invited by our dear friends from Texas to come to Florida! My husband had an away game that weekend, so it was the perfect timing to…

The best is yet to come

Many adventures, many stories and it’s time to catch up. In the last couple of months I have been to Florida, New York, Wisconsin and many other places I still need to write about. So stay tuned

Chicago ‘My Kind of Town’

The weather is calmed down a bit and… Oh well…who am I kidding… Not really!! It’s still freezing over here! But the curiosity to discover more “North of the wall” (click here) is still there. My good friend offered me to show me the third largest city in the United States…Chicago, Illinois! The City where…

Milwaukee Public Museum

It’s time to discover what kind of culture our new place brings. So to start at the beginning… we recently visited the Milwaukee Public Museum. It’s a lovely museum. It is very large and even one of the largest natural history museums in the USA. It got a lot of interesting things to see and…

Game of Thrones

The Atlanta Silverbacks season is over and it’s time for us to explore a new adventure and a new State. We drove with kid and cat through Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois to eventually reach our destination… Wisconsin! The State of diary! Yeah… the first time I heard about this “adventure” I wasn’t that thrilled…

Motherhood, WTF!

You would think I have the luck that my daughter mingles 2 languages in her sentences, but for an unexplainable reason she always speaks perfectly clear English when we are in a public place. She can all of the sudden loudly pointing out some observation or repeats something I or someone else once told her….

‘Georgia Aquarium’

We got so many questions of others if we already went to the Georgia Aquarium…(one of the world’s largest) Every time it got more awkward because it’s like THE place to go when you are in Atlanta, Georgia and we didn’t go yet. So we decided to finally go. It was in one word just…

‘Stone Mountain’

We live 15 minutes from a wonderful place called Stone Mountain. The first time we have been there was in May, but we have returned for many times more! There isn’t anything quite like it and because of that I am really impressed by it. The feeling reminds me of 20 years ago when I…

‘Angel Wings’ Believerz

  ‘I don’t want her to follow my footsteps, I want her to take the path next to me and go further than I could have ever dreamt possible’ Since my daughter is born I love to dress her like a ” million Dollars”. But of course, it doesn’s cost that much. It became a…

‘A not so happy camper’

It’s only been a few months now since we moved to Atlanta and it brings us all good things. The sun is out and this is the season for us to get outdoors and enjoy all of the amazing things the city has to offer. We have nice weather, made new friends and the club…

‘So what do you do’

Even though I am super proud of who I am and what I do, I always try secretly to avoid the answer. The reason is… I am not just “a stay at home mom”. I get many people who respond with— “Oh… so you are just a stay home mom”… They make it sound as…

World of Coca-Cola

“Best commercial I have ever sat and walked through”! World of Coca-Cola is one of Atlanta’s top tourist attractions. It is downtown Atlanta and is located near by the Atlanta Centennial Olympic Park. I was really surprised what this amazing place offered. It is full with fascinating history and loads of great memorabilia. Coca-Cola is…

Daddy D’z BBQ JOYNT

After living two years in Texas and eating real BBQ food, it’s very hard to get satisfied by other “BBQ places”. But… I found Daddy D’z BBQ JOYNT, located in the heart of Atlanta. Honestly, it is maybe a bit questionable if you want to stop there… but we did anyway. “Never judge a book…

Legoland Discovery Center Atlanta (+ video)

Legoland; I would recommend it to anyone with kids who enjoy legos! It’s located in the Phipps Plaza mall Midtown Atlanta. Honestly it is a bit small and chaotic, but our daughter loves Legos and had a great time and that’s what matters the most. They have a flying ride, a car racing and building…

The Sun Dial Restaurant, Bar & View (+ video)

This restaurant is a great concept. I love the fact that you get 360 degree of spectacular panoramic views of Atlanta while eating. The views are absolutely amazing. The glass elevator that is getting you to the top of the hotel is a sensation by itself. The restaurant moves really slow and you only notice…
