It's So Hard to Say Goodbye...

Yep- the time has come. After living here for just under a year, I will be saying good-bye to Africa very soon and heading home to get ready for our baby girl. (I won't give specifics but let's just say I'll be able to shop this week's Target ad- IN PERSON!) :)

Although I am so excited to head back to the greatest country in the world, I am also a little sad. There are a few things that I'm leaving behind that I will definitely miss.

This guy....
I am truly dreading the separation from Jesse. The good news is I'll see him in a few weeks. He's traveling to Europe for work and I'm meeting him there! :) The bad news is that I won't see him again after that until it's time for Emerson's arrival.

Our amazing friends:

Our awesome household staff:
They've become like family to us.

Our gorgeous yard and garden:

The lake and the magnificent mountains:

 And I will definitely miss the fresh fruit and vegetables- mainly the pineapple, mangos, and avocados. They are to-die-for and I know I'll never taste anything like them again!

I have to admit that I've been on the countdown to my last day for a while now and I have been SO excited about seeing my family, my sweet dogs, and going to real American stores and restaurants. I honestly didn't think I would be sad to go AT ALL. I guess I was so focused on the awesome things that I had to look forward to, that I forgot about the precious things that I would miss. It is pretty hard to say goodbye...Then again, there are definitely some things that I'm NOT going to miss. That's a whole other blog post though, so I'll save it for tomorrow.... :)

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you are enjoying it with the ones you love!
