then i'll head to colorado to spend five days with mollie and dan, and then back to ohio for a week and a half to see friends and family in that familiar state. but then. the big news. i got a job in new york city, working with success academies in teacher development work. i am beyond excited. matt is planning to back to school for nursing, and in november, we are planning to look for a place together in brooklyn. a HUGE change from his tiny hut and island of emae and from my little capital city of 30,000, but one that is about as wonderful as i could have hoped. and matt is handling it just about perfectly. i feel so lucky.
so, on to another chapter...it feels like i was just doing this...time passes so quickly. and now that we'll be out of the "land of the worst internet ever" (aka vanuatu), blogging will be much easier. so i'll do much better about updating this blog (especially so my mom and dad can see : ) so now you know. lots of love for the last time from my little island nation.
