Isn't it just now our bidding season, you may ask? Yes, but we bid on some NOW positions and alas, Chris was awarded Valletta, Malta. We were in a good position stateside, where we could move quickly... really quickly, in less than a month, so off we go abroad again. We joined the Foreign Service to live abroad, so we are thrilled with the chance to go out again!
Chris is already with the girls visiting family in St. Louis, as when things derailed with the move “plans” in Texas, it was less painful to go separately and let them unwind with family in Illinois while I wrapped up things in Texas. We’ll enjoy some time there before heading to Washington DC and then to our new island home for the next two years.
An island... in the middle of the Mediterranean... with turquoise waters and stone walls, history and fresh produce.
After 2 years in a crazy, but beloved, developing country and a quick stint back in America, we have butterflies for what this new chapter holds.
Stay tuned, I hope to get back to Beyond the Cornfields more often with enthusiasm!
