A Quick Intro

A Quick Intro
My wife and I have been living in Berkeley, CA for just over 4 years. She works for a major biotech company, and I work from home. About 13 months ago life changed drastically… We had our first child. A healthy little girl named Freya came into the world and my wife and I were thrown into parenthood. We were given all the books, but didn’t read them. We were given all the essentials, but didn’t know how to use them. Our line of thinking was, “we’ll figure it out as we go.”


That’s exactly what this blog is all about… figuring it out as we go. I now have 13 months of parenthood under my belt, and Freya is still alive and kickin’. That said, I don’t have it all figured out. Every day is a test of will, wits and patience. I’m learning as I go, and I’m writing it all down.


  1. Congrats on the blog, Pete. Looking forward to reading about all your family’s adventures. We just moved to Tahoe…in the middle of winder…with a three month old. So, we’re kind of on the same path…a good adventure is good for the heart and soul.

    • Thank you Kacey! Adventure is always good… it’s about the journey more than the destination! Are you in Tahoe for good?

  2. Good luck on your move to Sweden. I think we live down the street from you and we just moved back to Berkeley after living in Stockholm for 3 years.

    Hi Peter,

    In a forum at linked in, I saw your question about your daughter not sleeping through the night now that you are traveling. If you want I can still give you some advice. Please send me an email, so I know your question is still up to date.

    Kind regards, Sheelagh Brinkhof, the Netherlands
