My husband is a Chinese model.

"Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?"

Hi, my name is Dan and i'm the face of Volkswagen Shanghai

This was one of our most hilarious experiences to date.
After a brief presentation, 
China introduced the VW brand to their country.
Followed by a provocative dancing group, fireworks, and 
lots of ching chang chonging (chinese), 
Dan stepped out of the car and all the women were loving him.
Dan was milking this to the max and
winking at the women who were swooning over his smile.
(Excuse his outfit: VW gets what VW wants)
The Chinese girl's dream is to marry an American man 
so Dan is more than ideal.
He claims it was for the money but anyone who knows Dan knows 
he will never let me forget that he was a model.

Suzhou, China.

They call it the "Venice of China"
because of the many river channels running throughout the city.
Suzhou is in the East of China near Shanghai.
My husband was offered an internship here for the summer,
so a little over a week after our wedding
we set out on this amazing adventure.
 Pollution problems aside, we do have pretty days.
But my hair and skin is dying for moisture!
My favorite lunch.
Pick raw ingredients and they make it into soup.
SPICY soup.
Acupressure foot massages
 Bullet train to Shanghai (20 min ride)
Early morning ride
 Wildlife Preserve

 Baird's love tigers
Many men here let their left thumb and/or pinky nail
grow out, so people know they don't have low class jobs.
like farming
 Your typical Chinese gym rat.
In skirts, dresses, whatever.
Our bathroom came with a backlight..?
 Breakfast for one.
 Gym water fountain. 
Choices: boiling water or warm water
 Not like our American farmers markets.
Food on the floor.
Rank smell.
 Church is only 2 hours long during the summer.
It'll be hard to break that habit!
 This is called the pants building.
It's our direction landmark in Suzhou.
 Across the lake.
Typical with english shirts.

We have all this life left to live and I can hardly wait.
The future looks so beautiful and bright.
I will try forever to make him the happiest man in the world.
(aka cook lots of meat and make sure the a/c temp is turned WAY down)
We’ll  love, laugh, grow, travel, cry, fight and, most importantly, make up.
But for now, we will take it one day at a time.
One, beautifully unique, day at a time.
I love this man.
