First of all: I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a great start into 2013. I know I was MIA for two weeks and as most of you might have guessed already it was, because we were in Germany. We spent two beautiful, but also stressful weeks at home and with our families and friends. I really needed that time after a few rough months that we had in 2012! Even if we still have some things to figure out and some problems to solve, that time back in Germany made me realize (once again) how much we have already achieved here in the US in the last two years and mostly how home we feel over here.
I still can’t believe it’s been nearly two years! Two years since we boarded a plane with only 6 suitcases and a lot of hopes and a few worries. And now we already have whole new lifes over here and feel home! Before our trip I was a little worried to go home. I was worried that seeing all my friends and our families would make me feel homesick and would maybe make me doubt our decision to move away from Germany. But the opposite happened. I did again have to realize how tough it still is to face everything I left behind. But I also realized that Germany is just not where I want to be and that I do have to chase my dreams over here – in the US! Our first week back in Los Angeles was filled with a lot of work and sleep (due to the jetlag), but yesterday we took some time to go to the beach and enjoyed what we love most about California!
On New Year’s Eve everyone always asks you about your resolutions for the upcoming year! Mine are to keep my head up high, never stop chasing and fulfilling my dreams and to make one big wish come true: Move closer to the beach!
I wish all my readers a successful and beautiful 2013 and hope that I will have many positive storys to share with you all!
