Welcome! Tally ho!

Our B.V.I. Adventure is designed to give our family, friends and any other interested followers a look into the life of two expatriates making their way on the island of Tortola. Tortola is the largest island in the British Virgin Islands.

So, why did we move 2,000 miles away from our home in Knoxville, Tennessee? Michael accepted a position as the director of retail and international sales for a Caribbean clothing brand.

BVI Baby Boom

Michael and I are really fortunate to have returned to the island of Tortola in the middle of a baby boom!  Babies are everywhere!  There are so many other expats with new babies around the same age as Anna Drake, who just turned three months old!

A friend of mine told me about a play group organized by some expat women.  Anna Drake and I have been twice so far.  Here she is trying out one of their bumbo seats:

There were dozens of babies and toddlers there! 

It was really great to be able to talk with other moms, some new like me and others more experienced.  I have a feeling we will soon become "regulars" at play group, especially as Anna Drake becomes more playful herself!

Shands has the same outfit! Anna Drake is absolutely a doll! Shae and I are coming down this summer so I look forward to meeting her (and seeing y'all). Unfortunately, Shands won't be making the trip this time. She just turned 9 months old and every new "first" is so exciting. Enjoy Anna Drake as a baby because they certainly grow up way too fast!

That's great that you will be coming to the BVI this summer! We look forward to seeing you both! Maybe Shands will make it the next time around!
