Welcome! My name is Nadya. I am a full-time working mom and wife. My husband Evan and I recently relocated from a Maryland suburb of Washington D.C., to Philadelphia with our two little girls.

We settled down in Maryland in 2010, bought our first house and welcomed our two daughters. And before that move we lived in Olde City, Philadelphia and enjoyed urban living while cramming as much travel as we could possibly fit. In the twelve years we have known each other, we have traveled extensively to Europe, dabbling in Asia and North America. Through our travels, we have discovered what is important to us and how we would like to live life and what values we can instill in our kids. Curiosity about the world, different cultures, traditions and celebration of important values such as family, closeness and friendships are key to happiness. We believe that these are best conveyed through food and travel.

…and so this blog is born. Here, I would like to share our adventures as a young family starting with introducing the art of living to our daughters Sophia and Eliza.

I hope you enjoy reading this blog and your comments, suggestions and advice are always welcome.
