We’re Moving (Again)! Here’s Where We’re Headed to Next

December 7, 2017

Big changes headed our way with a big move…

Moving Abroad

I’m excited to share some exciting life news–MM and I are moving to Spain next month! It feels like we just moved to San Francisco (though it’s actually been a year and a half since our epic road trip). We’ve loved getting to experience west coast life–I gotta say, it’s pretty amazing out here. But now it’s time to move on to our next adventure–in Barcelona!

In January we’ll be leaving San Francisco and making our way to Barcelona where we’ll live for 8 months. MM’s job is what’s bringing us abroad. He’s in a rotational program, which is also what brought us from NYC to SF, and this will be his final rotation.

We’re very excited/nervous/anxious about the move (and the many details like visas, flights and an apartment that are still being processed, eek). I feel like we’re being given an amazing opportunity and I want to make the most of every moment. I’m excited to spend a final 3 weeks in SF and make the most of these moments, then throw myself into the expat life.

I think it’s meant to be that we’re headed to Barcelona. We visited on a family vacation a couple of years ago, and MM and I both said that we loved it and that we could see ourselves living there. I feel like that’s a pretty big deal since we’ve never said that about other cities (SF included), and especially not about other countries.

This isn’t my first time living abroad. I studied in Australia for a semester in college; I loved the experience and wouldn’t change a thing. But I was a little jealous of all my friends studying abroad in Europe as they visited so many countries. Now’s my turn! I’ve been joking that I’m going back on study abroad (just slightly older and wiser now).

While MM will be working, everyone has been asking what I’ll be doing. Well, that’s a work in progress! I’ll discuss more on that topic soon, along with many other questions I’ve been getting.

There will be a lot more coming your way as we prep for this adventure and I’m excited to share the journey with you!
