It's Not Goodbye... It's See You Soon

Goodbyes never get easier. Well maybe they get a littttttle easier when you know you are going somewhere with warm weather and an ocean nearby... but you get the point.

We have officially started our newest SE Asia adventure. Our contract this time is for 2-3 years in Singapore but we'll see how it goes. I have told myself that I am going to explore and enjoy as much as possible since this is my opportunity to show Livi the world. What lucky girls!!

I guess I am beginning to get a hang of this whole "expat" thing. Or more used to it. When we left this time, I didn't even cry. I guess it's because I know in my heart that we will be back and I see this as a wonderful opportunity for my little family. It is sad that we won't get to see our friends and family back home regularly but I know that one day we will be back for good and I'm sure I'll be missing the expat life then. Right now I am just going to enjoy the ride.

We move into our place in Singapore at the beginning of December. Before then, we are nomads living in Australia and possibly Thailand or Singapore before our move in date. We don't have any firm dates when we leave Australia yet but I am okay with that because I just love it here. I'm trying to convince Jason that we should just stay here while he has to work in China rather than in a hotel in Singapore. I'll let you know how that goes.

Our trip here went wonderfully. I am so blessed to have such a good little traveler. And Olivia did amazingly herself. ;) The flights were booked, so we held Olivia the majority of the time (we did have the bassinet on the flight but it was turbulent so I had to take her out a lot) but it wasn't really a problem. And when we got here, she wasn't even jet lagged. Wish I could have said that myself. I'm pretty sure she is going to be Wonder Woman when she grows up.

Here are some pictures of our journey.

As you can see, we not longer pack lightly. ;)

I'm sad that I didn't get to say goodbye to some of you before we left. We will be back to visit so to all of my dear friends and family, please stay in touch. And, get Skype. :) We'll be back before you know it.

See you soon!! xx
