Well it’s about time…

So I’ve been thinking about starting this blog for 2 years, 4 months and 3 days so I’m glad I finally got my act together and the internet stars aligned to get it started.  It’ll take me a while to tweak it but I now have one post under my belt. I really want one place to chronicle the craziness and hilarious times of living in China. It’s better than a concert on Hongmei Lu some days. In all seriousness, I love our neighbourhood and want to share some of what I see with those interested in seeing.

I also reserve the right to post on any range of subjects, pictures of beautiful things, a new recipe I’m trying out, antics and videos of my girls. Be patient with me!

This is a pic of me and my youngest daughter. She’s a hard case but I wouldn’t change her for the world.

Thanks for stopping by. I’ll post again soon!

Only joy, only love,

I am a Canadian from Newfoundland and Labrador who has done a lot of moving around and has some pretty amazing experiences. I currently live in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada with the love of my life and partner in crime and our two beautiful and incredibly special daughters. (Totally biased but I'm cool with that). I started this blog because I wanted a space to share the people, places and things that bring me joy and give me a good laugh. Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy! Only joy, only love. Michelle xo

  1. Happy New Years! I’ve been told so many times that I should start a blog of our China expat adventures. Good for you for doing so! What a great way to stay connected to friends and family back home!


  2. It is a NewYear and what a great time to start your new endeavour. I loved your world in China, your friends and your family. Thankyou for doing this. I can hardly wait.


  3. Hi Michelle, I look forward to hearing stories about the family and your Shanghai/China adventures. It will be particularly interesting given our recent visit with you and our brief exposure to the amazing Chinese history, culture, architecture, etc. (And shopping ๐Ÿ˜€)


  4. This is the perfect endeavor for you, Michelle! You were a born blogger! Looking forward to reading! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hapy New Year and lots of love from Texas!


    1. Thanks Pauline. I’ve had “so much” to blog about over the past couple of years and today, I’ve got nothing. Inspiration will hit or it better after I opened up my big mouth and said I was going to do this. haha I hope you and your sweet baby are doing well. Love to you all! xo
