A blog that started out being about our deputation but has expanded to include our life in Taiwan.

Fall is in the air!
So, what do you think of my new look? I am feeling fallish so much that I just want to go out and buy pumpkins and mums and school supplies! And then use the three and make a wacky table arrangement. Here in Taiwan, it doesn't cool down as quickly as it does in the states during fall, but the days get a little shorter and the sun slants in that beguiling fall way and I love it! Why am I so addicted to this time of year? The crunch of leaves (only memories from the States, certain not an experience in the ever so lovely, but ever so green Taiwan), Apple pies, new clothes for school and the hint of a chill in the air just excites me. When I was in college and would head home for a visit, there was this one road that I always took. The little, winding Natchez Trace with its two lanes, 50mph speed limit (who was the drunk that decided on 50?) and gorgeous fall foliage. I can still see in my mind the trees meeting overhead and the afternoon sun peaking through the oranges and yellows and reds of dying leaves. If you live near the Natchez Trace in Northern Mississippi or Alabama, go take a drive. Take one for me and look at the leaves and relax. But when you get to that terminally long bridge near the Florence exit, turn around. I never liked that bridge.
Is old enough to vote, now old enough to be president. I have 1 wonderful husband and 2 marvelous kids. I live and work in Taiwan with the afore mentioned husband and kids. We have been missionaries here together since 2001, but Chris landed on the island back in 1981. He has been leaving his mark ever since. I came as a new bride with her head in the clouds and it helped tremendously with culture shock! If you want to know anything else about us, you will just have to read the posts.
