At Home in the World: 9 MONTHS, 5 BACKPACKS, 4 CONTINENTS, 3 KIDS, 1 HUSBAND.

At Home in the World

This is the story of how our family spent an ordinary nine months in an extraordinary way: circumnavigating the earth to see, firsthand, the places we've always wanted to explore. Through paper lanterns in Thailand, three-foot-wide Venetian passageways, the community of strangers in Zimbabwe, and beyond, I unearth the dance between wanderlust and rootedness; how to be both lost and at home in the world.

  1. The sandwich sushi looks great! Will definitely have to try that one out, and no crusts to cut off or be left in the lunch box either – perfect!

  2. I love the notes. My mom packed a lunch for me all through high school, and always wrote me a note. Now my husband often packs a lunch for me and always leaves a note in my lunchbox. I have a box completely stuffed full of them that is fun to go through and read as a reminder of how much they each love me.

  3. GREAT ideas! I struggle so much with new healthy ideas to make for my boys’ lunches. I love the sandwich sushi best! Thanks and have a great day! Claire

  4. I love all these ideas, but when it comes down to it, my older son wants nothing but peanut butter and jelly every day. For a while, I was pushing him to try new things, but then I realized that we’re ALL happier when I pack something he’s certain to eat. A little comfort food in the middle of his day… now I’ll just have to add a note or drawing to surprise him!
