Hi GW Readers,
We hope you’ve had a fantastic summer. We think it’s safe to say that it’s been transitory for us, but we are now officially settled and ready to start this new season of our lives!
Over the past 4 months, we’ve heard from many of you who wished to help continue this blog. We were overwhelmed with the responses, and grateful to know how much this virtual community has impacted your own graduate journey. It affirmed for us that even though we are now former graduate wives, it’s important that it keep going.
We have a team who’ll be assisting us in running the blog (seriously, go check them out here), doing a myriad of things from writing, editing, idea mapping, etc. We’ve all worked very hard this summer to make this a reality, which is no small feat considering we are scattered all over the world!
We are still looking for people to write for us, so if that’s you, please do get in touch with us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a new school year kicks in, we hope your journey is filled with love and life.
In admiration to all of you with the daily support you lend to your other halves!
-Mandy and M.C.
I don’t know if you’ve stumbled across this yet, but it had me laughing out loud. Hard. Haha. Happy Friday!
Today I had originally planned to post a different set of tips, but after a friend shared this fabulous link earlier, I couldn’t help but pass along.
Amazing right?! Toilet paper rolls to help store wrapping paper, an old lotion bottle for a handy cord holder, old CD holder for a bagel tupperware…random and genius! I’m so inspired by this comprehensive collection of easy tips all in one place. I’m a HUGE fan of recycling and re-using odds and ends and this list has so many great ideas for just that! Enjoy being thrifty and handy today.
Dear Graduate Wife readers,
We hope you are having a fantastic summer, and are gearing up for another exciting school year!
We’ve had an incredible summer. Between the Olympics, visiting family back in the USA, parties with friends, and enjoying the amazing weather in Oxford (seriously, it is something to note), it’s been a season full of remarkable memories.
Due to family committments, upcoming school events, and just an overall need for a time of rest, we will be taking a break from the blog for the next three weeks. We will plan to be back the week commencing the 10th September!
We are looking forward to some of the topics we will be tackling in the Autumn, and hope they will encourage and support you. Meanwhile, if there is a topic that you’d like to see us cover, please write to us to let us know. Some of our most popular posts have come from ideas given to us by our readers. This is truly YOUR blog, as much as it is ours!
Thanks again for reading, and for sharing your own journey with us.
With love and blessings,
~Mandy and MC
