2017 in Photos on Speaking of China

As we’re days from bidding farewell to 2017, I thought it might be fun this year to share a sampling of some of my favorite photos on the blog from this past year.

No matter where you are in the world, I’ll be wishing you a very happy new year. Cheers to 2018!

We moved to Beijing, and our car was just packed to the brim! Here I am savoring some homemade baozi that my mother-in-law packed for us.

In Beijing, our new life began at China Daily, where I now work.

In Beijing, I’ve had the opportunity to meet some fabulous other Western women with Chinese husbands, including Laura of Our Chinese Wedding (who is also my collaborator at the group blog WWAM BAM!)

One of the highlights of moving to Beijing was this welcome dinner with lots of fellow Western women with Chinese husbands. Unforgettable!
