Bienvenido a Miami

This morning I was busy making plans with one of my nephews to see him in Miami next week. I haven’t seen him in over a year and that is simply too long. You have to understand something. I have the world’s greatest nephews. You may think you do, but I am sorry to say, mine rule.

I haven’t been home for a year. It’s so strange to think what it’s going to be like because I have no experience to compare it to. I think it will be overwhelming in the way that China was overwhelming to me at first. I know I have adapted to the way of life here, so it will be interesting!

People ask me how I like living abroad and for the most part; I really enjoy it. I have been out of my comfort zone a lot this past year and I have learned a lot about myself and the world around me, sometimes welcome lessons and others; not so much. But the more I learn about the world around me, the more I realize how much I don’t know. Being abroad has really made me look at who I am, what I am made of, who I want to be, and how I want to fit into this world. It’s inspiring in that sense.

However, I sure do miss my nephews and I can’t wait to give them all huge hugs. They really are amazing.
