Take it down, Box it up

and put it away til another year…

I Do NOT like taking down my Christmas decor and putting it away. It is always very sad for me. I love Christmas and I love the coziness and warmth that Christmas decorations bring to our home. But this year I MUST put it away early because we fly back to China TOMORROW  and I don’t want the kids to have to look after this. So even though it just went up on December 15th, it goes back in the box until next year. Hmm? And as I was doing this,  I thought… Will we be finished our expat adventure this time next year? Will we still be in China? Will be in a brand new country? I wonder…what will this new year bring? These are the things I was thinking as I was packing it all up!

Lots to do today…

And poor Abby…she’s getting used to this whole scene. When the suitcases come out, she knows! Sure wish we could take her too!!

Well, this day is almost done. Just a bit of time left with our kids, donairs and chocolate milk and pizza for dinner, hugs kisses and goodbyes, a good night sleep and then it’s FLY day once again…

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
