ABOUT ME

Hi there! I’m Tani De Gregorio. The one behind this little blog. ‘Our big Dubai adventure’ started about three years ago when I quit my job in a multinational in Switzerland to follow my husband to sunny Dubai where we are living now with our two little munchkins, Luca (3) and Maëva (nearly 2).

You’re right about this-we always get to see the bright side of things. For once, it is SO refreshing to read the glum side of things too smile

I love this post and how you have added the reality behind each photo you posted! We all definitely like to focus on the positives, especially on Instagram, but I think it does keep us sane too, not dwelling on all those tantrums!! haha!

…Or maybe it would be fun to look up the perfect Instagram feeds, and cook up in your head what could have happened before and after the photo was taken!
Sending some positive vibes your way. And you do look gorgeous, by the way smile
