where we are meant to be

11 September 2014

—– Iceland 2013

I enjoy the excitement and anticipation before an event but when the time nears I ease into a quieter calmness. This marker that is just around the corner is where I shall be and I will relish it in all its lessons, surprises, overwhelm and simple joys.

We have turned that corner. My husband and I are just days into living out a monumental dream. Our feet are connecting with the soil of the Northern Hemisphere and will traverse unknown lands across Europe, the UK and elsewhere for 7 months. We are seeking the intimacy of daily life in villages and cities we’ve only read about. We will walk, photograph, eat, converse, create, relax and breathe easily in this magnificent journey down the mysterious road of wonder and growth.

We are where we are meant to be today, and loved ones are wholeheartedly cheering us on. I’m deeply content and privileged to be beside my beloved husband embarking on life’s ordinary and extraordinary moments together.

I look forward to sharing the stories here, my friends.
