TWO YEARS. My family and I first came to Amsterdam two years ago and not much has remained the the same for long since. Now, after 24 months of nearly constant hurdles, changes & challenges, we've really begun to hit our stride. Even little things like shipping weekly newsletters contribute to the cadence & momentum that keep me more stoked than ever. So thanks for tuning in and, in your own little way, helping me to continue find my footing here in Holland. I'm eager for feedback, so let me know what you'd like to see more of!
