This blog has evolved from being about lots of things to being about the time our family lived in Portugal. The story began with a trip to visit a friend who worked in Portugal. The trip ended with us being engaged, and planning to get married the following year. We did, and we lived in Portugal for 11 years during which we had three children. Fourteen years ago, we returned to the states and went about the business of reverse process of culture shock. Feel free to contact me with questions, suggestions or other feedback.
