Last Saturday??

could this be my last Saturday here in Atyrau, Kazakhstan??  If all goes well with our visas, this may well be my last Saturday here.

As I sit out here on my patio I’m choosing to slow down just for a while (because there’s a million and one things to get done!!)

I’m not going to deny it – I am an expat.  I get that adrenaline rush when my hubby tells me that it’s time to move again.  I love it.   It’s exciting.  A new country, a new city, new opportunities, new relationships and of course the challenges.  I would be in denial if I did not admit that there are challenges.

there are so many emotions all at the same time but I don’t think I would want it any other way. 

Stay too long in one place and I start to get this itch, like I can’t sit still and little things that only happen in the location that I’m currently calling home,  start to bug me.  Yes that’s what happened in Bangkok.  4 years felt a little too long.

This time around – we are leaving just before we would hit our 3rd year. But  I feel ready.  3 Kazakhstan winters is good enough.  I am at peace to leave and for my family we feel like we are leaving at a good time. 

Of course I’m going to miss the place, the people and the community. And I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t.

Don’t cry because it’s over. SMILE because it happened.

this week I’ll share photo’s of our past 2 years, 11 months here. 

It’s been a joy.

Glad you are ready to go. I would never survive the moving so far, so frequently. I am a homebody and have never moved more than 30 minutes from my childhood home!
