Hello, It's me, again

Monday, November 20, 2017

My last entry for this blog was posted a couple of years ago—2 years and 9 months to be exact. That means I have been putting aside the "need" to write more. I have always kept a journal for as long as I can remember but because I own an iPhone, and I do have a relatively short attention span, I can be easily distracted away from my notebooks.

For the almost three years that I have been MIA, I have done a few things in between. The major one was that I did go back to work—meaning yes, I have certainly travelled more than I stayed home. I am not exactly sure if that's a good thing (it's not) but let's just say, it wasn't bad either.

In 2016, I went back to work in Saudi Arabia for a little over 6 months. The same thing happened this year, in 2017. And in those months, I was fortunate enough to see different countries with the family I worked for. (I'm a PDN for a Royal Family, if you care to know, LOL.) At the risk of sounding burgis, yes, those travels were free—we flew on privately chartered airplanes, driven around in big cars, stayed in 5-star hotels with stacked mini bars, and went to eat at really fancy restaurants where they serve you little portions of food at a time—the whole shebang. It has all become a blur though, because it was work, and the whole time  I was there (yes, even when we were in New York), I was dreading to go home. It wasn't all rainbows, but that's another story.

At some point, I will properly put entries for each travel and tag them like any responsible person who runs a blog does, but for now, here's a lazy summary (A.K.A. Photos Grabbed From my Instagram) of where I've been for the almost 3 years I wasn't posting anything on here.

There are far more pictures, and even more stories to be told from this on. 

And since we're already here, to be completely honest with you, for the almost three years that I have been MIA, there is one thing I haven't done: to get pregnant. There is also more to that soon.


  1. I'm one of your biggest fans, Des! Your photos are quieting and calming; your perspective unique, as if nudging me, "Look at this place differently." I look forward to seeing more photos, hopefully with your new baby! See you soon.
