As most of you know Drew and I will be headed to Central Asia this summer to begin our work in a humanitarian aid/disaster relief office. We are very excited about this and plan to leave in June. We will be there all summer and then come back in September so we can complete the activities we must go through with our company. Until then, we are in the process of getting things ready to leave since we'll be closing everything down here and moving on in June. As a result, the next few months will be full of many "lasts" for us. Being the sentimental woman that I am I want to try to remember these moments and really enjoy them.
The first of these lasts would be decorating with all my Christmas stuff. We won't have a place to decorate next year and we aren't sure how much of our stuff we'll be able to take over so I've really enjoyed my decorations this year. Most of you know I'm a Christmas freak so this is very special and important to me. Hopefully we can get some of my decorations over so I can decorate in Central Asia. I am downsizing and keeping only the more meaningful things that I really enjoy. I took some pictures of our apartment so I could remember everything I had and remember what it was like to go all out. Maybe I'll do it again someday but it will be awhile.
Here's to the first of many lasts for us!!!!
