About Us!

Amanda and Seth met online in 2008 and met in real life in December that year. In May of 2009 after Amanda’s master’s graduation, she moved to Orlando to start a new life with Seth. But that was when the economy was taking a severe nose-dive and full-time teaching jobs proved impossible to get. Seth had just graduated as a pharmacy technician and also was unable to find full-time work. With the debt mounting and the possibility of moving becoming bigger, they made the decision of “if we have to move, let’s move big!” Amanda had a minor in Chinese language and had always dreamed of teaching in China but never thought it would actually happen. But with Seth’s support and easy-going attitude, her dream and their new life began in China in August of 2010.

In December of 2016, their family finally got a little bigger with the addition of their first child through adoption.

The family is currently living in Yangshuo, Guangxi Province. Amanda is a freelance writer and editor and Seth is a stay-at-home dad.

This blog chronicles their life here in the Middle Kingdom.
