It’s been a long, long road.
Today feels like the culmination of the last 5 years of our lives.
Today, we received our Residency Cards in Valencia, Spain!
It has been 5 years of soul-searching, difficult decisions, persistence, hard work, planning, executing, several amazing exploratory trips to Greece, Croatia and Spain, time, money and resources invested, and, yes, even some doubts, tears, and more than one argument.

But, we are here now, the city is breathtaking, the people are warm to match the weather and we’ve made some great new friends.
It feels like home.
I often pinch myself.
But, it’s also just the beginning.
The beginning of this new journey to live in Europe and thrive here under the Valencian sun.
I don’t know what the future holds for us here, but no one else in this world has more influence on the way this journey continues than we do. We plan to make the most of this literal once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
Thank you to everyone who has supported us and inspired us and cheered us on! Thanks to our families and our friends back in the U.S. Thanks to you, my readers and followers and thanks to new friends near and far who have help guide and shape our journey.
You guys are amazing!… and I am grateful.
