One YEAR Anniversary!
Today marks ONE WHOLE YEAR that we've been living in Thailand. What a year it has been! When we first got here, Jane wasn't even walking! A lot has changed in this one, wonderful year. In some ways, it seems impossible that we've already been here this long. It feels like just yesterday that we could drive to our parent's houses for Sunday dinner, get to a Target in 10 minutes, or walk across the street for some company. In another way, Bangkok feels so much like home, it's hard to think that it's ONLY been a year. It's amazing how we could leave everything and everyone we know, move thousands of miles away to a new and strange country, yet it really does feel like home. We've grown up a lot this year. I feel like I have been exposed to so many situations and people that has given me a much more open mind. I have become very aware of how blessed I am to have been born into the family I was, married into the family I did, and have the family I have. One year to go and an extraordinary amount to learn.
