Hello, Lausanne!

After many weeks of hard work, preparation and anticipation... we have arrived in Lausanne!

Ashley and I are both very excited to be here! We've been greeted by beautiful (but chilly!) weather and gorgeous mountain views. We have spent the first few days getting used to the new time zone, tying up some loose ends from the move, settling in and getting to know our new home!

Goodbye, DC!

The time has come to say goodbye to DC, the place I've called home for the last 8 years... I will always have great memories from this great city!

I will miss you, DC! I hope to come back soon!

Things have been pretty crazy

With the move to Lausanne now less than three weeks away, things have been hectic over here for Ashley and I. We've been running around like crazy people making sure we are taking care of everything we can for the move, and we've also been trying to enjoy spending time with our friends and family.

At home Ashley and I are in full-on packing mode. We've been bubble-wrapping, sorting and boxing everything up, so the house is a huge mess. In a matter of days we'll be loading a truck with all the belongings that we want to keep, but can't bring to Lausanne. Then we have a long drive South to take everything down to my mother-in-law's basement, since she graciously agreed to hold onto our stuff for us. It's a complicated operation, since we don't want to forget something up here that we'll then have to throw away, but we don't want to bring something with us that we will later need!
