This week marks four months living back in the USA for us. I really have no idea where this time went.
Relocating back to the US is hard. Really hard. I am having more trouble adjusting here then I did when I moved to Brussels or Singapore. Both worlds so different to what I knew, what was familiar to me, yet I never had an adjustment period.
I miss the hot hot days of Singapore, the exotic travel, the food, my friends, my blog posts. I was expecting this to happen and was glad the timing of our relocation brought us back during the holidays. It is the perfect distraction - fun, festive, and busy.
I have always wanted an advent calendar filled with little surprises to help count down the days to Christmas, but no one ever bought me one. So I decided to create one for myself : ) I picked up this advent house when I lived in Brussels, Belgium. I started wrapping little presents back in 2014. We were traveling a lot and I was buying so many things that is was easy for me to forget about them, especially when I wrapped each one immediately.
Fast forward.... I have an advent calendar filled with little presents from around the world. Each little present packed with a memory of a trip I took.
Just the little pick me up I need during my rocky transition......
What are you doing for yourself this holiday season?
