In just one more day, I will be leaving for Spain! I can’t believe how fast the summer flew by. It is just now that the reality of my departure has set in. Here are a couple of my mixed feelings.
I am nervous about how much I will miss home. I got married this past January, and this summer has been the longest amount of time I have lived with my husband Mikey since our wedding. So, obviously leaving him and my two puppies, Teddy and Cali, is going to be emotionally difficult. Not only is it tough because I will be leaving Mikey, but also, this is the longest time I have left my parents to go and live in an unfamiliar country. Here are some pictures of my family:
Not only am I excited to be a tourist, but I am excited about the opportunity to immerse myself in the language and the culture. My first language is Spanish, and as the years have passed, I have begun to loose a lot of it. Hence, I am very excited to have the opportunity to improve and ultimately perfect my Spanish.
Spain…here I come!
