I am pretty disappointed that I haven’t updated my blog in such a long time. Spending almost a week on a distant Fijian island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean has (unregrettably) made connecting to the internet rather difficult.

I know I am skipping ahead of the flow that I have created. After we stayed in Mississippi, we went to Austin Texas, followed by Los Angeles, and finally Waya Island in Fiji.

I spent my first night in my own bed on Tuesday night. I almost cried when I walked through the customs gates at the airport when I spotted my mum and dad’s smiling and expectant faces.

It feels like I have been gone forever. Driving home, I felt like I was in a fog. It was like rewatching a dream you remember well. But all the edges are a little fuzzy.

This probably did have a lot to do with lack of sleep and over-exposure to the sun, but it was there nonetheless.

I can’t stop thinking about how this (being Brisbane) is not my home anymore. We are in-betweeners. And I know I won’t feel at ‘home’ again until we are settled in Adelaide. Living with my sister and my nephews.

Once we arrived back at my parent’s place, I laid in bed for the longest time last night. It was after midnight. Feeling quite bewildered at what is to come. I kept trying to make mental lists of what I needed to do, but the lists kept getting foggy in my head, and I would forget what I had already mentally written on them.

SO. Here we go. I am going to continue posting about the rest of my trip – we had an amazing time, and there is lots I am really looking forward to showing you.

After these posts have been updated, my focus for the blog will change. I want to document what is to come in my life. My husband and I are moving from one city to another – a place where we will be starting new.

We don’t know how we will get there, or when exactly, but that is the exciting part.
