Happy birthday to me! Yesterday, I turned 37. I had a great birthday, with cake, presents, my favorite olive bread, and cards made for me by my boys. It’s been a wonderful year. We’re finally feeling settled here, everyone is happy and healthy, and I’ve gotten to travel to some of my favorite destinations ever. I miss home, I miss my family and friends, but I love Austria, and we’ve really found our place here, and it, too, feels like another home to us.
And, the year to come is going to be a great one, too! We have more travel planned (mostly back to some of those places we’ve already been but liked so much that we want to go back) and, by this time next year, we will most likely be back home, living in the States.
I’m so grateful for this past year. I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunities I’ve had, and to be living the adventure I’m living, with a wonderful family, great friends and amazing kids. 36 was wonderful. 37 will be too. It’s going to be a great year. Life is good!
