OK, ACTUALLY this secret is quite a biggie. And it's been eating me up because I've just been dying to let you in on it.
So here goes.... we're moving. to. Dubai.
Whew! There I said it and I feel so much lighter already! There have been rumblings for awhile and now it's looking pretty official. Well, especially since we're moving out of our apartment in Ireland next week!
I know, you're probably as shocked as I still am - I haven't quite wrapped my brain around it. The culture, the middle east location, the sun and heat (oh yes, the heat!) From a lush green, wet island to a desert frying pan, you couldn't imagine a more opposite change.
But I suppose I have more than one secret... we are leaving our Muskoka place behind. Yup, it's going on the market and that part is definitely bittersweet. I adore Muskoka. I adore our place. And coming back on Friday and stepping through the door was heartbreaking for me, knowing that this place I love so much would soon be gone. The tears were flowing. And so, moving out of Ireland and moving out of Muskoka is a little more than this little brain can manage. I'm trying to hold it together as I deal with all the minute details.
So I hope you'll bear with me if I'm a little sporatic with my posts and visits to your lovely blogs. And hopefully you're not too disappointed in me for not sharing my news sooner. But on the bright side, you'll get to share in my adventure of moving to a foreign land and getting my bearings (and finding an apartment & decorating it!) There's always a silver lining.
