Thanks to my dear friend Kristy I will be able to attempt to blog our adventures in Amsterdam! We are two weeks into this adventure and I finally have our computer to start the blog- now if only I could translate the settings from dutch to english I could do this a lot quicker! Maybe one day I will learn the "chinese language of Europe" as one of Derek's coworkers calls it.
Well the adventure could not begin without saying our goodbyes- or as I would rather say- "see you in a while" or as luke would say- "see you on the puter"
We truly are so blessed and we felt so loved during the leaving process. We cannot even begin to thank everyone for the love that was shown, the encouraging words that were shared, and the drinks (including the Wiedel Jameson shots) that were consumed to celebrate our journey.
And to our friends- new and old- we are truly going to miss you- life is so much better with close friendships- and we have amazing ones!
From childhood friends...
to college friends....
and new and dear mommy friends...
you make life easier and more enjoyable. We look forward to visits home and hope that if you are in the market for a European vacation- you choose Amsterdam. Maybe we can relive some college memories (just kidding- we are
mature grown ups!)
There are mixed emotions in leaving-
I wanted to act like a kid kicking and screaming, begging to stay.... or begging you all to come with us
But we have all we need (each other) and a few bags- so OFF we go!
