2 years in Australia

It's amazing how fast time actually goes. Sometimes when you just sit around and your bored you look at a clock and an hour can feel like 5 hours. Well I'm just shocked at how 2 years has just gone by so quickly.

Well a lot has happen this year.

First I just want to mention how much I feel at home here. I have stopped dwelling on the states and the things that I've left behind and immersed myself into the Australian culture. Heaps of people have even commented on how I am sounding more Australian every day. I'm not trying to forget or leave my America behind. I'm just facing the fact that Australia is my home now. I will be here living here forever unless the United States comes up with some better form of health care. The amount of surgeries Nathan has on a regular basis. There is no way that we can afford to live in the United States.

Our anniversary gift to each other was a Kitten.

He really has made our lives better.
I don't really know what else to say, I'm happy here. I love it here. I also think the best decision I made since moving here was going back to school. It gave me that opportunity to meet Australians and immerse myself into the culture and lifestyle.

I have not yet been back to the States yet. However we are planning a trip in December and January.

I just came across your blog. Drawn in by the name and looking forward to reading more. I will be celebrating a year in Australia next month, and back in July I hit the 5 years overseas mark (we were in Spain before). It is amazing how much easier it gets with time. In our case I know we are not here forever, and I have no idea where we will be next--I am just living and loving each day.
