Happy New year (again)! Welcome to the January #TrailingSpouseStories blog crawl
This January we talk about beginnings. We all were there at some point in time. We all started out in strange lands. How was it like starting over in a new country – if you have done it multiple times, does it get easier or harder? And what are you building in this new year? This is my #TrailingSpouseStory…
My life has never changed in a major way then.
I studied in the same all-girls Catholic school for 13 years. My schools – kindergarten/gradeschool/highschool and college – were in the same city, just a kilometer away from each other. I played the same sport for 12 years. I lived in the same house for 18 years. I even had the same boyfriend for 9 years.
I loved that there were aspects of my life that were steady as a rock, but ,at the back of my head, I always longed for some change.
Be careful what you wish for they said. Then boom, change happened and it happened in the most radical way possible. Three days after our wedding, I found myself in a new country – without family, without friends – with a new husband.
