The song Leaving on a Jet Plane seems very fitting right now...with some minor wording changes. All our bags are packed but we are not ready to go!
Tomorrow morning we'll get getting up bright and early to drive to Amsterdam. We'll be leaving behind an amazing town and country...and husband! This truly has been a summer to remember. We've met so many kindhearted individuals and loved living the expat life. Who would have thought that this sheltered PA girl would actually be jealous of her husband staying in a foreign country for a while longer?!?! Today marks 8 weeks since we first stepped off the plane into The Netherlands. It sounds like a long time but the summer flew by. There is actually so much more that I want to see and do in this beautiful country...so for now I will live vicariously through Bill. I'm even leaving my new camera with him so I am expecting some great pictures!
I am so thankful for Bill! He followed his dreams and goals and that brought us on this amazing journey of a lifetime. His drive, dedication, and commitment is exactly the type of modeling that our children need. Without him and his goals, we would have never had this summer that will provide memories for many, MANY years to come! I remember when we first started dating that he commented that his career goal was to work internationally. Here we are, just a few days shy of our 11 year dating anniversary, and he's crossed it off of his bucket list!!!
Not too many kids can say that they spent the summer gallivanting around Europe. We desperately don't want to leave Bill but we are anxious to see our friends and family back in the states. I'll continue to update the blog as we transition back into our PA lives. I'm sure that the next few weeks will go by in a whirlwind - once we recuperate from our jet lag.
