Ola, amiga (That’s friend in Portuguese)! I’m Julie and I am so excited that you found my little corner of the interwebs. I started this blog just over a year ago as a way to connect and make new friends within the military spouse community.
Now, why did I even want to connect with military spouses to begin with? Well, it just so happened that I was, yes, was, dating this guy in the Navy and well, you know how it goes. We were going to start a life together but then it doesn’t always work out. I’m telling you, international long distance relationships are hard enough, but throw in the military aspect to it… Well, that’s a doozy!! So anyway, I went from being a milso to just another expat girl out and about in this world…
I have been calling Singapore home for the past 4.5 years, but I have left chunks of my soul behind in London and NYC. And oh, did I tell you I’m Brazilian by birth? Yep, you heard me, I am Brazilian! But even then it’s a bit of a story. What can I say, I have been an expat brat pretty much my whole life. I love the nomadic lifestyle; I have a hard time staying still and I am now thinking of where to take myself next… Any suggestions?
Hope you come with me on my adventures in Singapore and who knows where I’ll end up next..?! Life can’t be planned, am I right? And I would love to connect with you on social media, so say HI!! Or, if you want to make it more personal, feel free to email me at jewelswandering at gmail dot com
