The last thing I ever thought I’d be doing is starting a blog about being a housewife, much less one set in Hong Kong, but as it turns out that’s just what’s going to keep me busy for at least the next couple of months. The Mr’s company offered him an opportunity he couldn’t resist and so here we are. To be honest, starting a blog kind of makes me want to throw up, not because I don’t like reading blogs but because I feel like it’s so two years ago, but even if no one reads this I’m sure the discipline of writing daily will improve my writing. Plus, it’s easier than keeping a journal. And, after all the reason we’re here is that Asia, whether we like it or not is a big part of all of our futures. So all those caveats aside, until I find my next big thing, you can check in here to find out about our Asian adventures and domestic travails.
Before we get started, a little (don’t worry–just a little) about me. I spent the better half of my childhood in Silicon Valley, headed to Indiana for undergrad at Notre Dame, and then came right back to the Bay Area to work at San Francisco magazine writing and editing (check out some of my pieces here). After five years there, I followed my card obsession to Minted, an online stationery start-up. I’m still working for them part-time from Hong Kong (check out some recent blog posts here), albeit remotely and from home, hence the housewife status. I also love to cook and entertain (my friends back home call me ‘Martha on Crack’) and so I’m excited to see what influence being in Asia will have on my cooking, entertaining, and decorating activities.
