Leaving a Home

Friday, Ben and I said goodbye to our home in Brasilia.  He and I have always become very attached to the places we live, which is probably an occupational hazard considering the overseas life we live tends to move families frequently.  
We've lived in our "BSB home" not quite four years, but a lot of life has been lived there in that short amount of time.  It's the first place we settled after joining this somewhat disjointed, Diplomatic life.  
In that house, we learned to cook new foods, and toast with drinks of exotic flair.  Where we celebrated birthdays and anniversaries - sometimes not always together.  Where we brought home one child.  And didn't bring home another.
It's where we hosted friends who shared stories of where they were from, where they had been, and where they were going.  Places all around the world.
They say Home is Where the Heart is, and our house in BSB will forever be one of our Homes.

I understand. Moving is very hard, but it can be exciting too. Hopefully, it will take you no time to settle into your new place.

I so understand. I still miss our last house, it was definitely HOME. Hope your new place becomes home immediately. Hugs, Marty

These homes have the souls of our families....and quietly watched us grow. I so understand.

To a safe and even exciting move.

I'm less than three weeks away from leaving my home of three years in Bangkok. My anxiety level and sense of nostalgia grows each day. I just know that soon the hardest part, actually leaving, will be over and the fun of getting to know a new city will be in front of me.
