Apparently, I give good photo. I was interviewed for the Mormon Women Project, and to accompany my profile a volunteer professional photographer took my photos. He was a "real" photographer, with lots of equipment, with another friend who assisted him with all sorts of accessories. We met in the garden on the north side of the Marriott in Woodley Park, which is surprisingly large and full of flowers. I was asked to sit, stand, look natural, smile, look thoughtful, smile again, turn my head, and don't forget to smile! Everyone said I was "a natural." It was fun, and I'll post the photos when I receive them.
Afterwards I met a dear friend and her four year old daughter at Open City which was super, super crowded. We fortified ourselves with S'mores Pop-Tarts while waiting. We worried about turning into expat freaks who can't re-adjust to life in the U.S. Quite honestly, I'd hesitate to live overseas again right now (passing the Foreign Service written exam notwithstanding) but I am tempted by the thought of having a housekeeper again.

It is understandable your not wanting to live overseas again. But I seem to face the hardship of adjusting to being home and the culture shock of not having my things with me. I would much rather be abroad again. I also miss the help. Housekeeper, guards, and nana, they were just as much a part of my family.
Thinking of heading out are you? Don't you get to travel with your consultancy?
