We are off in the morning to celebrate the New Year in CT with some of our besties! Cannot wait to see their digs and pop the champagne to ring in the New Year! Party safe everyone!

The Big Unpack

It has taken us a couple days to get half of our things unpacked and to go through our mail. We still have quite a bit to do before we are finished and have to turn around and re-pack those bags for the upcoming holiday travels and beyond, but we did find time to sneak in some errands the past two days and walk through the ridiculous snow! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!

We are back in the country and awaiting our final flight of the day to DC! We are so happy to be home for the holidays!

Heading Back

We are about to board our flight back to the US one day to the date that we left Miami one year ago. There is so much to reflect and think about during our long journey back. We are both so happy and content and look forward to some time together, time to rest, and time to celebrate with family and friends.

See you tonight, America :)

The school year is over and we are almost all packed up. Just a few days left before we cross the ocean again to spend the holidays with family and friends! Bittersweet emotions now saying goodbye to new friends who feel like old ones and the excitement at being back in the US of A to spend the best time of year :)
how we will look in just a few days- photo from Carol at the airport en route to Brazil ! 
The last minute juggle of how to make it all fit, a last minute trek to Zurich to see AP, a potential last ski in the Alps and a big celebration Monday for Nicholas and I before we head back exactly one year to the date that we left Miami. 

Wow. Not many more words can express all that I am feeling. So, although there is so much to write about: the amazing graduation ball, the parties, the time with Nicholas!!!! and having our final visitor (Betty :), I just do not have the time or energy.

Although, reflecting on the year and all that I have gained and learned and grown, I thought of a song that I have always loved and the play that it belongs to. How do you measure a year? Until soon... mwah!

PS and I thought last year was intense- wait for this year in review!
