Here’s how things have come along in my life. I quit my great paying job of 13-years to move for about 9 months (not pregnant) to Germany with the love of my life. My last day of work was last Friday, and it was a bittersweet moment. I don’t know if I made the right decision, but I won’t know unless I make it. In my heart, I believe I’d regret not going then going. It’s an opportunity of a lifetime, and I’m one open to opportunity. I made the decision back in June, so it wasn’t made in haste or unplanned.
While I’m taking care of things in the States, my love is getting our flat all cozy and ready for our return. I’m excited about our adventures together through Europe although I do plan on bringing a few American items. A few traveling coffee mugs so we can use while walking around town. My favorite mascara made by Maybelline Full & Soft. Zumba to keep my hips, abs and body moving to drop the extra poundage I’ve put on over the year(s). We’ll see how that goes after all the eating and drinking I’ll be doing. And last but not least—my German-English books and Writer’s Markets. I hope to achieve a career in creative and/or freelance writing. Even though I’ll be in Germany, I will have the technology to keep in touch with the States. This trip is a writing experience and opportunity to make a writing career, so wish me luck.
My love and I have talked about things we plan on doing. He describes the foods he wants to cook for me and I’m looking forward to mulled wine at the Christkindl markets in Germany.
In between his work and my writing, revisions, and edits, we plan to travel and take in the sites. I’ll be there for a week before we swoop off to Spain to visit his parents and Barcelona for a day. We also have a planned trip to Edinburgh Scotland. I’m very excited about both trips, and especially for the Literature Pub Tour we will take in Edinburgh. There are some other trips we’d like to do by car—Monschau and Luxembourg.
So from this decision, I hope to eat great European food, drink lots of mulled wine, beer and Sangrias, find a home for my writings, love my Sweets and keep him happy, and travel to cities to experience the European life. I will still blog, send emails…well…basically do all the things I do now.
P.S. Haven't left yet.
