Congratulations, you’re alive.
If that’s not something to smile about,
then I don’t know what is.”

Q: What Makes You Smile?

The reason I love this quote so much is because it really speaks to me as a Third Culture Kid (TCK) and now as an ATCK. I have people constantly coming in and out of my life with moving so frequently. It has made me feel like I have lived a ‘normal’ person’s lifetime in my mere thirty years. I am always being called to some place new and get itchy feet when I have not traveled to somewhere recently. To me the purpose of life is the experiences and I want to experience all the world has to offer. Those lines spoken by the narrator really tap into that nomadic existence and has been a favourite amongst my other TCK friends.
The second quote is from one of my favourite authors, Tolkien. I have been a huge fan of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings series from a young age. I read from the same books to my kids that my dad used to read from to me. If I ever wanted to get a quote tattooed on my body it would probably be the following.
|Something you do everyday': Pray. I’ve also started reading my Bible daily.
I got the cover hand painted when I was living in Thailand.

Photo included is my dad’s last trip to Disneyland with my family. Ronan was two and I was pregnant with Maddox at the time. Pictured here with my sister and our friend Austin.
|Shoe shopping with my partner. What do you think of these?
My current pair has holes in the soles, no good in puddles.
‘Something that makes me sad’ is not having my dad around anymore.
Not just for me but for my boys as they grow up.
