Living in the Land of Endless Vodka and Bedazzled Eggs


Today’s blog is a guest Post from our sweet friend Jen.  Jen is the mother to a little girl named Madelyn and a wife to Jared. Jen was a school teacher and counselor before she became a stay at home mom.  Jen is from Michigan and landed in Houston after her husband was transferred to Texas.   We told Jen we would love for her to guest blog about her family’s passion (sailing) and her adventures living overseas.  Today’s blog was written by Jen while she lived in Russia.  Here is a link to Jen’s blog!
