My name is Blythe. I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, Jeff, and my son, Theo. I started this blog when we moved to Germany. We spent three years there, trying to seem cosmopolitan and worldly but actually dying for Taco Bell to open a franchise across the street from our apartment. Then we returned to our home country, where everything was exactly the same as when we left and also completely different. I'm still waiting for Taco Bell to open across the street.

You can contact me at blythe(at)theblythespirit(dot)com.

Here are some favorite posts.

Here are some books I've read.

Oh Wow! I am so very glad to have found your blog, Blythe.. especially about the baby adventures! I am an American who is about to become German by marriage.. and live permanently in Deutchlands.. We are planning to get started on a family soon, also because of my "age".. the clock it seems, is ticking! So here I am, learning German, still in the USA, while my future husband is working and waiting for me over there.. just until I can tie up all loose ends here. I will be fortunate to have a fluent speaker of English and German in the form of my husband, but you're blog is going to save me a tremendous amount of worry and trouble.. Hope you keep up the wonderful work because I will definitely keep reading! And I wish you and Jeff the absolute best with your new son.. Hope all is still going well.. Thanks again! Isabelle

Gruss! I stumbled on your blog somehow and wanted to say hi. My husband and I are getting ready to move to Frankfurt in 30 short days and I'm trying to soak up as much as I can! Any words of wisdom are appreciated.

Courtenay McHugh passed your blog along to me. We are neighbors in Amsterdam. My husband and I recently moved from Portland (and the other shoe company in town) to Amsterdam. We are expecting our first child in about 7 days. Your blog has been great to read - I started with your last few weeks of pregnancy.

I really enjoy reading your blog, and book reviews! Keep up the good work!
