California, here we come.

12/2/11


It's official: we're moving back to California.

After living in Singapore for about a year and a half, the time has come for us to pack our bags and leave the Little Red Dot. We moved here because of Jeff's work and we're heading back to California for the same reason. 

Life in Singapore has been a great experience for us and moving abroad is one of the best decisions we've ever made. We've traveled a lot (ten countries!), made some great friendships, and learned a lot about ourselves. But things happen for a reason, and the next chapter of our lives will take place in California. 

We gave our two months' notice a few days ago and will be leaving at the end of January. For the next two months we'll be busy getting the dogs ready for the move, tying up loose ends, and clearing everything out of our apartment. (If anyone needs something for their apartment, we're getting rid of it all so let me know if you're interested in anything.) 

And here's our theme song for the next two months. California, here we come.

    I'm not sure if we'll have the opportunity to catch up before you go because I'm going to Hong Kong for a couple of months 22 December, but I hope so!

  6. Wow! So exciting! You guys will be about 19 hours of flight time closer to me than before! How are you feeling about it all? Are you ready to leave? Sad? Bittersweet?

  7. @kirsten I hope so too! Let me know what your schedule is like this week and next.

    @Kiersten mixed feelings. Living abroad has been amazing, but Jeff has a really good job opportunity back in the Bay Area. I really love the feeling of leaving everything behind and starting over (again) though.

  15. Oh wow! I first found your blog when I was looking for information about moving my pets to Singapore and it doesn't seem that long ago when I followed your anxious move (wondering if I would feel the same too!). I've been popping in every now and then to read your blog and am sad that it will come to an end... But all the best! And thanks for all the great info about Singapore!

  16. I hope to continue blogging from California. would love to see your home from your eyes. Never been there so it still feels like a surreal place to me, a place I've only seen in videos or on TV/movies.

  19. Life is fluid - sometimes it's best to just go with the flow! I'm sure your friends and families are looking forward to your return home. And I bet Little Joe and Lord Stanley will be equally as excited to set their paws on Californian soil again.
