Upon Leaving, She Reminded Me To Breathe

In an instant we found ourselves on a very fast moving river with only our wits to guide us. The metaphorical river appeared in the blink of an eye when a decision was made with such conviction the Universe had no other choice but to accept it as already done.

So begins the final stage for our move to Thailand. Our brains were fixed on 16 weeks to go and now it is 3 weeks and only 10 days of work left! Excited as champagne bubbles ready to explode is how we feel and the lists we made are both being ticked off and added to at the same time.

ALL THE FEELS are bouncing around and more coffee is probably not a good idea. So as I sit here at our favorite coffee shop just down the street from the apartment we have been in the last two years I need to remember to breathe! The people here are wonderful and it feels like a safe port in a storm. Our coffee is made as they watch us walk up the street and as we enter the shop the greetings are so heartfelt it is like we have been gone for years! We really love these people!

Our decision to move up the date happened Friday afternoon before going home from work.
Today is Saturday and yes, we woke up several times last night with dozens of thoughts running through our heads. Get passport photos taken for our visas, change our flights and hotel reservations, more items to give away, cancel electric, notify banks.............on and on and on.

The reason this post was not published a month ago was our hope to surprise some friends currently living in Thailand when we arrive. More on how that goes later.
