We are two sisters, separated by many miles of both land and water.
We both love to read. And we love to write. And we love sharing little details of our lives with each other.
Back when we were little girls, cars were not equipped with DVD players, and iPods were nonexistent (as were CD players, for that matter.) That being the case, our parents had to find other ways to entertain us on car trips.
One of our favorite ways to pass the time was to listen to our dad tell stories. He told all sorts of stories, but our favorites were the ones starring Blue Eyes, Bright Eyes, Mommy Eyes, and Daddy Eyes--a character to represent each family member at the time.
Almost three decades later, Bright Eyes and Blue Eyes are still having lots of adventures. Our new sister blog will be nice to have as we attempt to record little bits of our days for each other, for other family members, and for friends both near and far.
Ellie and her husband have previously lived in Germany, Tanzania, and England. They now live in the beautiful country of Switzerland. They have sweet little baby who will be bilingual from the start, which is really cool. (Abbie is the one writing this--can you tell? :-) I think bilingual toddlers are really fascinating. So many amazing things happening in their brains as language skills are developing.)
