In the last couple of weeks we coincidently showed our vacation pictures to several of our friends that hadn’t seen them, yet. And seeing those pictures of us in Florida and California suddenly made me realize how much I already miss my future home country. When I see these pictures I remember the way Flo and I felt when being there â and I guess it is not only the country that I miss, but more the way how happy, comfortable and careless I felt when being there. And that makes me think a lot!
Will I feel the same way when I actually live in the US? Or will I look at pictures from Germany and be homesick for everything I had in my old live then? Right now I think about the US a lot. About how it will feel to pick my parents up at LAX for the first time. About what I will want to show my parents and friends when they come to visit. About how our lives will be like in California. And about how our relationship will develop with all these hard and exciting days ahead of us.
Everyone tells us how brave we are to actually do this. I don’t think that we are brave! I don’t feel like I am doing a brave thing. I think we are only doing what we have to do! We have to take this chance. We have to try out our luck, try living our dreams and try to find somewhere to call home.
Right now my parents-in-law are doing a little round trip from Los Angeles to San Diego. I am so jealous. But not only, because they are in the area that I miss so much right now. But because I would so love to be there with them and show them everything that makes my heart beat like crazy.
I hope that they will develop a even bigger love for Orange County than they already have throughout their vacation, because I want them and everyone else I love to visit us as often as possible and see and understand why we wanted to make our dreams come true!
