An adventure is an exciting or unusual experience. It may also be a bold, usually risky undertaking, with an uncertain outcome. (Thanks Wikipedia).
And an adventure is exactly what we’re doing! I couldn’t have said it any better – we’re embarking on an experience of a lifetime and completely jumping into the unknown. Dan has visited London a long time ago, and I have never been. We’re excited, scared, happy and sad…but we’re doing this together. And together we go…
So let me back up a bit – tell you how we got here and then get to where we are now.
A little while ago Dan was accepted into an overseas program with his company (yay!). We really had no idea when it would be, except for “late summer/early fall”. It was a complete waiting game to find out any information…then in late June we found out it’s a go and he starts Sept. 1 in London – and we were off to the races. We put our house on the market, sold all of our belongings and I began searching for employment in London.
We’re currently just a few weeks away from departure and are in the closing process in our home. Thankfully the first family to see the home loved it and wanted to make it their own! It’s been a relatively easy sale, and are close to the finish line. Everything is starting to fall into place here in Metro Detroit, and now we’re starting to focus on what will be our new home in London.
For now, we’re making the most of our time here. Spending it with all of our family and friends. This blog is meant to keep you in the loop of our adventures. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers for the next few years as we embark on this new chapter. You can subscribe to our blog so you’ll receive a notification of every update (so you don’t forget about us!).
So darling, let’s be adventurers!
