‘Not Guilty’

The year 2018 started off pretty rough for us, because my husband was stuck in Mexico due to a missing stamp in his Passport and he couldn’t come back into the United States… He missed his daughters birthday and made a lot of people nervous back in the US, but that story is for later….

‘American Girl’

When my husband is off from soccer training and games we like to drive to Chicago and just walk around and explore the city. These last months were hard because of the intense cold and snow! Wisconsin and Illinois are not known for their warm winter months. But when we are there when it is…

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas friends and family!! It is a time for remembering, a time to share the goodness of your heart with others, and for expressing with words and gifts what someone means to you. It is a chance to make wishes come true and to give something from your heart. It is a chance to…

‘Forgotten’

Now that I am here in the USA for almost 6 years, I created almost the same safe place for my family like my parents did for me and my sisters. I married an amazing man, have 2 kids and a wonderful 10 year old psycho cat… Everybody is loved, we travel around the world…

Algemeen Dagblad ‘Orkaan Harvey’

ORKAAN HARVEY Windsnelheden tot wel honderddertig kilometer per uur, lege schappen in de supermarkten en orkaan Harvey die jouw kant op komt. Voor de Nederlandse Laura Denissen en haar kinderen is het zaterdagochtend lokale tijd, in een buitenwijk van de Texaanse stad San Antonio, afwachten en hopen dat het meevalt.

‘Harley Davidson Museum’

Everybody in the world knows the brand Harley Davidson and we really started to be curious about it, when we figured out that it all began in Milwaukee!! How lucky are we that it is in our town and we can visit their museum, because this is the only real Harley Davidson museum in the…

‘No fairy godmother’

After a few months of a break with writing… a lot of things happened and one of them is welcoming a healthy baby boy in December. While I am totally dominating this whole parenting thing with two kids, I still have some issues I need to process that I came across while pregnant and giving…

‘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

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…

‘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…

‘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…

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…

‘Two Big Headlights’

We left New York with a bang and we will never forget our adventure in any way possible. We were in the middle of a process where we had to figure out if we wanted or had to go back to the Netherlands. This country brought us so much joy, so much love, and so…

Shake Shack

Deze Amerikaanse hamburgers moet je hoe dan ook proeven en tevens de sfeer ervaren… Ofwel echt een aanrader om naar toe te gaan! Het is altijd druk, maar een unieke ervaring. Je staat soms in een lange rij inclusief met politieagenten en brandweerlieden. Maar geloof me dat het echt de moeite waard is en het…
