    What an adventure!!! It’ll be interesting when it’s time to come back to see what the things that you miss the most are. (It’ll probably be the hardwood-styled carpet!) 😉

    I’m glad you’ll be posting from abroad and I can’t wait to hear about it!

    I cannot even imagine what you’re going through. Just moving 1.5 miles away is stressful…and you’re doing a cross continent move and have given up and changed almost every.single.thing in your life….deep breaths! You’re my hero! BEST of LUCK!!!!

    You and Bjork are incredibly brave for taking this leap of faith and letting go of everything you’ve built here in the U.S. (at least temporarily). Best of luck in all of your endeavors. I’m sure this will be a life changing experience that you’ll never forget!

    Lindsay and Bjork——-We know you will not only embrace what awaits you but bloom beautifully in your new surroundings. These are emotionally charged moments of transition for you —(and for us too!). We pray for your strength during this time, for safety in travel, and for rich blessings in your new home and work. God be with you, precious ones! Love, Grandpa and Grandma
