Did you know?

Alexander the Great set up multiple Alexandrias as he conquered nation after nation across Europe and Asia. Alexandria, Egypt is the most famous of them, obviously, and I'm living in a knock-off Alexandria (no, he didn't make it to America, no matter how great he was). I recently learned, however, that the farthest away Alexandria that Alexander the Great founded was in Afghanistan. That Alexandria is now the sight of an American Air Force base...where my husband is currently stationed.

So how cool is it that I'm in Alexandria and the Man is in Alexandria and we just had a son named Alexander (stalkers ignore this reference to Little's name)?


  1. Obviously we will need to get y'all a fancy copy of Arrian's book about Alexander.
