Altered Latitude started out as a resource for expatriates moving home from living abroad. I wanted to encourage people through this often difficult transition to always live a life of adventure, despite their coordinates on the globe.
I have since evolved from the 20-something girl who lived in Sydney, Australia, to a wife and mom. My heart is full of more love than ever before, and as always, a healthy amount of wanderlust. I am constantly seeking the balance between living a life of adventure, and putting down roots with my growing family.
San Diego, California is where we call home right now. It’s a city that makes my heart happy. It’s the best place in the world to fly into; you get off the plane and can just breathe easy here. My daughter’s names are Maisley and Coura. Their stories first began on August 16, 2016 and June 1, 2018 and I feel so fortunate to be entrusted with helping them unfold. My husband Ryan and I still can’t believe we created these spunky, kind, curious and beautiful souls.
For me, writing is much like the feeling of getting on a plane to a foreign destination; thrilling yet terrifyingly vulnerable at times. It’s the best way for me to make sense of my ever-changing world. It’s also a necessity. Otherwise, the narratives just float endlessly around in my chatty brain with no where to go.
So, keep reading if you’re into mom stuff, travel stories, and everything in between. I hope you are finding little adventures everyday, wherever you are in life and wherever you call home right now.
