Farewell BBQ

The countdown to our departure started a long time ago (by me, at least), but we are now down to a mere 6 days before we get on the plane for Scotland. Last night, we had a great BBQ with friends and family - thank you so much to all who joined us. It was so fun to hang out and catch up.

Beka and Laura bought me this adorable bag filled with some goodies for the airplane. Thanks ladies! The bag is so cute!

We have a few more things to do before we go. Jeremy got up bright and early this morning to cancel our cell phones, deposit some generous gifts from friends & family, and pay off our credit card bill before we close our bank account. Preparing to move to another country has proved to be a lot more work than I anticipated. This year was full of paperwork, applying for one thing or another, waiting, and paying fee after fee. There's a flippin' fee for everything: visas, passports, passport photos, canceling cell phones, etc. etc. ...

We're really looking forward to our new adventure and we'll definitely try to keep up with the blog!
