Either way, I cannot believe that one year ago I boarded a plane and left my family and country behind. When I look back at who I was when … More It’s been one year since moving abroad!

She’s … More I’ve Moved! (again)
I got back from Italy Sunday evening (the week before last) and started straight back to work on Monday with a 40 hour work week.
