Long Summer days. Squirrels scampering across the garden. Vineyards basking in the sunlight. The Hottentots Holland mountains standing nearby. The sea lining the horizon. An owl swooping from tree to tree. An early morning beachfront. Crisp fresh air.
I feel like we have found our home.
Yes, yes – this is coupled with that “holiday feeling.”
Work starts next week. I’m excited it for it. (Naturally, a bit nervous too.)
I’m basically in Christian education and empowerment now.
Thankful and happy for this new chapter of our lives.
It’s difficult to put all I am feeling into words and to even contain the emotion I have inside.
This part of the world is stunning! So much to take in.
There is so much to do.
Markets. Wine tasting. Hikes. Mountains. Beach. Coffee shops. Craft beer. Geocaching. New Friends. New experiences.
And yet there is no rush to do it all.
Even the ordinary things here are just so beautiful.
My heart and soul feel giddy.
Here’s to 2017!
