December 1st, 2016- Christmas Decorating 🎄🎅🏼 (part two)

Since @transl8 moved in the summer, when we decorated this year we had a whole new canvas. A bigger house called for even more decorations! (Like $150 worth 😅) the family room has this little ledge going all along one side of the wall so we put snow on it and made it into a little village. All of our windows are decked out with lights. One of my favorite decorated spots in the house is the living room where the stairs are. It’s so simple but the garland, bows and stockings just look so cute. I made sure to put the beauty and the beast ornaments on the tree that I got for my birthday. Everything came together so perfect. I feel so christmasy I love it 🎅🏼🎄❤️ here’s to the next 25 amazing days 😊 @transl8 😘

Happy International Translation Day! For all those translators out there, keep up the hard work.

For those of you without work or without as much work as you’d like, keep on trucking. You can do it, you’ll get there. I’m almost *there* myself, and since it’s my passion, I continue to push myself to reach my goal.

It’s a hard job. It’s challenging to be able to find the words and phrases that convey the meanings of the original work. But this is something that we need in our ever-changing, ever-smaller, global world.

We need to be able to communicate with each other, and we need to have access to ways to see things from other points of views- ex. literary translation.

I love getting to work with French and English,  to read and write, and to create things on a daily basis.
