Wow, what a year! And I’m not just talking about 2020! In less than a year we have moved again! We are now getting settled here in New England and ready to start sharing spots to explore again 🙂
When we moved from Guam to England in Aug of 2019 we had planned to be there for 3 years. We also knew there was a small possibility that we could have to move earlier if a job opportunity became available. Well just months after getting settled we found out that we would be moving after having only been in England for 10 months! Whew, what a whirlwind!
Yes, we were a bit sad to be leaving England so early. However we are super excited for the adventure ahead and there are some big positives of the timing of this move, so that helps with the knowing we are exactly where we are meant to be.
Here’s a quick recap of our year:
