We're alive and kicking...

It's been a complete whirlwind since we stepped foot on American soil. In a span of two weeks we looked at over 30 homes, and eventually found our diamond in the rough. We close on our house on June give us a few weeks before you come visit :)

In the meantime we bought two cars and are knee deep in appliance purchasing and furniture shopping! Things are crazy around here...but everything has worked out so seamlessly and we couldn't have asked for an easier transition!

I'll post a picture of the house as soon as the keys are in my hands--until then I'll do what I can to adjust to the 100 degree weather and apply my sunscreen!


  1. Yeah!!!! I am so glad to see that you haven't left the blogging world. I'm looking forward to your updates and the pics of your new place. Love and hugs to you and Stephen and Gracie and I think you might have another poochie? Blessings!

  2. Thought I'd check your blog, and yes, you're alive! That's good news. Great that you found a house. x Lisa

  3. I'm so excited I found your blog!

  4. Saw your story on an expat link -- thank you for writing and sharing your repatriation story. My husband and I have been living in Chile for 9 years and have to make a decision about moving back to the states with a job change -- I know it will be more of a shock than moving here -- leaving friends we may never see again. Thank you for your suggestions -- I know we will need them!
