A Short Goodbye ~ But Not for Long

Passports ... Check
Visas ... Check
Tickets ... Check

Yea, we're finally ready to go. Well, I'm not ready yet. I have a ton of packing, mailing, laundry, organizing, stressing out to do still. I'm getting a bit sentimental again ~ as I have been for the last 2 & a half months. I keep thinking about all the things I'm going to miss: the great nature scenes, my favorite places to get old junk, our dogs. Those dogs are my first pets & we've had them for 10 years now. I'm Really going to miss those little princess mutts!
It's great having this blog. I don't really have to say goodbye to my blog friends. Just, I'll have some really different pictures & stories to share. I think that's what I'm most excited about. I'm going to be living in another country on the other side of the world for 2 years! I get to share the experience with my husband & my 2 sponges of kids :) I hope I'm not gone too long!
I do promise to do a post on some of the digital things I've learned. I've just started to scratch the surface, but I was asked for some tips for beginners & I'd be happy to share what I've learned by playing around. Junque Couture, I'm doing that post especially for you!
Till next time :)

It is terrible - the missing part. Such bittersweet moments.

Have a safe trip Nerissa - you and your family.

Hi Nerissa,
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm sorry we won't be seeing you at the Lucketts Fair this weekend, but I'm glad you made it safely to your destination. I'm excited that you will be blogging about your new life there, I'm sure your posts will be full of fascinating photos and stories. Do you come back to VA after the two years is up? Or do you go to another destination?
I hope you enjoy your time there!
Karen
