Hi, I’m Ashley Crisp (sister-in-law of Naama and Jon). I live near Pinehurst, NC with Josh (Jon’s brother) and our kiddos – Charley who is 4 and William who is 15 months. A few towns away live Bill and Dale (Jon’s parents). Last month we had the treat of visiting with Aunt Naama for a … More Bill & Dale – Champs for 50 Years! (Guest Blogger!)
After our whirlwind trips to Italy and Israel, I headed to the U.S. for a visit. I was really there for a special anniversary party I wanted to attend but I went ahead and took advantage of the long trip home to do some of my favorite things and see some folks. (Jon, unfortunately, had … More Anniversaries, Birthdays, America – Oh My!
We celebrated her with a beautiful party and she was so very happy! She is still radiant when she reflects about it. Let me tell you how it all started (for me)… We are a big family and family members live in almost every continent. About a year ago, if I remember correctly, I started … More My* Mother is 90 Years Old! (Guest Blogger!)
The second destination on our world tour was Israel, my birthplace and the Land of Milk and Honey, as it is said. (Also, the birthplace of Bamba**, one of the best things ever invented.) My siblings had already arrived so we had a lot of niephews (my term for nieces + nephews; shorter) cuteness to … More Davidai Sibs Take Over Israel
Hi readers, This is Naomi (Doda Naama’s niece) writing a guest post about my and my family’s trip to South Africa. When we went to South Africa, it was Chinese New Year in Shanghai, where I live. In Johannesburg, we were playing together and we went to a pool that had a slide. We went … More My* Trip to South Africa (Guest Blogger!)
Jon here. I thought it would be appropriate for me to give a full rundown of the process of moving ourselves to Malawi. As a brief recap, Naama and I knew we needed to relocate after a set-back in my immigration application to South Africa late last year. With my employer’s connections and reputation in … More We’ve Arrived in Malawi!
After my mom’s visit, we took the loooonnggg flight to Durham to start my whirlwind U.S. tour. Somehow, I got super lucky again and our connection to RDU in Atlanta’s airport was in the same terminal as Pinkberry’s so I got to start my trip off with a bang. (Ah, Terminal A. You’re the best. … More U.S. Trip – Christmas with the Crisps (& Other Shenanigans)
Man, we’ve been wanting to write this for a few days now but we were waiting for our grandma to finish her post*. (Ahem…) 🙂 We flew back to the U.S. two weeks ago and, let’s just say, it was quite an experience. Our mom was being a bit of a triscuit and had already … More Our Trip to the U.S. – Phew, What a Ride! (Guest Bloggers!)
I arrived in SA after a long, long flight from Atlanta, which became easier as I sat by a nice couple from New Orleans. We had a quick dinner and went to bed. The next day, I got settled, adjusted and we met Jon for lunch at La Terasse Rooftop Cafe, a Moroccan restaurant in … More Tata (i.e., Michaela) in South Africa (Guest Blogger!!)
Phew! I can’t believe we’ve been in Africa for a year! I feel like so much has happened since we arrived… Honestly, it just feels like yesterday that I was getting on the plane to come here and wrote about my upcoming journey. And since then, we’ve put a home together, made friends, found awesome … More One Year In – What a Year It’s Been!
