Hi. My name is Theresa.
I am an expat, logistician, traveler, writer, paper crafter, lover of books and coffee, and occasionally doting mother. I am occasionally foul-mouthed, not nearly as diplomatic as my professional would imply, and fiercely feminist.

While I frequently link to services and products I like, I receive no renumeration, financial or otherwise, for doing so.
