It's lovely to see you here!

A Momma Abroad is where I share my perspective of life abroad and my love for the Philippines, there is so much to love!


An Ode To Pandesal

After four years of an openly committed relationship to pandesal it is time to determine the relationship publicly, PANDESAL I LOVE YOU! I have learned that food is a viable love language in Filipino culture which makes perfect sense as to why I love living here, it is also my love language. What does one do when they love something undeniably? You shout it from the (blog) roof tops! So today, I confess my undying love for a little bread that made me even sweeter on the Philippines.

I love the crinkle of the brown paper bag letting me know you are near. 


I love the memories you ignite of every road trip we have ever taken in the Philippines.
