Hamburg, October 2014
I’ve been pretty quiet around here lately on account of having moved across the world again. Turns out such things keep you pretty busy. Oh how I’ve missed “busy”.
The end of 2013 and the first half of 2014 were rough, to say the least. Remember my coming home from Munich and how it ripped me in half
? I’m still on the mend, but recovery is everything.
It was in August when I was offered a job in Hamburg. I was over-the-moon. Still am. It’s exactly what my heart was urging me to do; return to Germany.
And Hamburg is a hop, skip, and a jump from my old stomping grounds
of my old au pair days
. My host mom from that time, turned surrogate big sister, turned great confidant keeps reminding me that it was Schicksal (fate). I trust this. I truly do.
My heart and soul and hope needed this happenstance more than anyone could possibly understand.
But since I signed on my new apartment and have gotten a little more settled, I’ll keep you all better updated. Promise.
After all, there’s so much more I’ve been meaning to write.
