The biggest reason blogging had to take a back seat is... drum roll please... we finally sold our apartment & bought a house!!! It was a 4 year process, but definitely worth waiting for.
Not only did we buy a house, we moved cities. We left the center of a busy city and moved to a little village with roughly 1,100 residents. It's a big change, but a good one. Now if I can just learn to sleep through the quiet nights! Where are the sirens, motorcycles, and barhopping crowd when you need a good night sleep, ha-ha?
A lot of the roads leading from the main cities to our village are barely big enough for two cars. But they are lined with trees & farms, which is a much better view than the concrete & endless buildings we had grown accustom to in the city.
Sure the house is going to require a lot more upkeep but so far we're happy to do it. We were out doing yard work this morning with pleasure. We often stop, look around, and smile at the improvement from where we used to live. Patience does pay off.
There will be plenty more posts to come about this new phase of our lives, so be sure to check back periodically.
Bye! Dag! Adios! Namaste! Salut!
