About Us


Hi! I’m Jen, a copywriter, voracious reader and slow-but-steady runner. A midwestern girl through and through, I grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and lived in Minnesota with my husband Will and two daughters (currently ages 15 and 18). Will and I have long dreamed of living abroad so when an opportunity arose for him to work in Dublin, Ireland, we became an expat American family.

Follow along as we get our bearings in Ireland, explore other parts of Europe and navigate expat life with teenagers in tow. Fun will be had. Mistakes will be made. Horizons will be broadened. We’re just getting started.
