More InformationHello! Lindsay here with my wife, Borana. We are the blessed parents of a spectacularly funny and happy little boy named Hugo (3 years old) and a spunky joyful little girl named Lule (1 year old)! We are an international couple, Borana was born in Albania and raised in the USA and I was born in France to a British mother and American serviceman father and moved around the world only to land in the USA as well.
We travel frequently for pleasure, Covid has put a lid on that but as we will be in Edinburgh, Scotland until Jan 3rd and now are looking to take a sabbatical of sorts to finish writing our respective books and show our kids our ancestral lands. We are both lawyers by trade, don't hold that against us though (haha), and have chosen rather untraditional routes in life as we are both mediators and peacekeepers rather than adversarial people. Borana is an herbalist/gardener/writer/ and loving mother and Lindsay is an avid writer/photographer/philosopher and a critical part of rehabilitation and diversion programs for offenders in the USA and abroad.
Needless to say, we love people and love helping people. Part and parcel with helping others is understanding them, we speak a few languages; for Borana they are Italian, Spanish, bit of French,bit of Mandarin, and Albanian. I, Lindsay, also have taken French and speak fluent Legalese (hehe) as my wife likes to call it when I get SUPER intellectual/philosophical on some topics. We love to cook, eat healthy, walk/hike, bike, garden, and do quite a bit of DIY around our beautiful "cottage." We recently put up a bevy of raised garden beds to test out the square foot gardening method, it was a huge success!
We are Longterm homeowners and recently sold our home to travel for a few years before the kids get to be of school age. We take great pride in keeping a sanctuary to go to at the end of busy days. Often we cook together sipping wine, trying different cuisines as my wife is prone to being creative in the kitchen, and regularly drinking Turkish coffee with our (chocolate) digestives over a beautiful conversation of love, life, laughter, literature, and much much more.
Why we want to house sit:
We are as respectful of others and their homes as we are of ourselves and our home. As home owners we pride ourselves on the care and energy of the space we live in. We go by the mantra "leave people, places, and things better than you found them." We are currently in the process of finishing our books and looking for a calm environment to be inspired and free in.
Hey Home and Pet Owner, We have been loving pet sitters and caretakers of homes for the past 7 years. We enjoy animals and they enjoy us! It's nice to have furry creatures that are as excited about life as we are!
