Hello, my name is Sheila Pierce.

I am a writer, photographer, and mother of two children, aged 11 and 8. I split my time between America and Europe, and I currently live in San Francisco. When I'm in Europe, I feel American. When I'm in America, I feel European. In the Middle East, where I  spent four years living in Tel Aviv, I felt at home,  somewhere in between my original home (America) and my adopted home (Italy). This blog is about the richness and struggles of raising a family in two cultures and two languages (and sometimes three, depending on our posting), all while trying to maintain my sanity and time to write. Laughter, food, family, friendships, long walks, photography, music, wine and any city with palm trees make it happen.
