This is the beginning

This is the beginning of a journey that I have no idea how will play out which is not easy for me because I like to have an idea of how things may go and at this point I have NONE. My husband left today to start his new job in Monrovia Liberia which is in Africa. I will join him in January which is only four months away but to me seems like an eternity. I know this experience will be interesting, good or bad and I hope that y'all will follow it all through the up coming months. I know I am not perfect which means there WILL be some spelling and grammar errors (sorry
Cheryl) but it should be interesting.

Today hopefully should be the hardest. I dropped off Dan this morning at the Birmingham Airport and have talked to him a few times since but at the moment he is somewhere between JFK Airport and Ghana Africa which means I should be able to talk to him sometime tomorrow. The worst part about this whole process is the time we have to spend apart. I will have to go FOUR months with out Dan which is way not cool. After I dropped Dan off I did go to the Elley's and they let me and Tilley (the most spoiled dog in the world but don't blame me it is Dan's fault (; I promise.) hang out with them all day. I am going to get through the next four months but I am not going to like it. I hope I don't drive my friends and family too crazy but time will tell. Now all I can do is wait to hear from Dan and will relax when I know he has made it there safely.


  1. Good Luck Michelle with the whole move to Africa,hope eveything goes the way it is suppose to go for you guys.Just think of the four months that you are not with your husband how much you are really going to love him when you and him are back in eachothers arms,and remember that absence makes the heart grow fonder.

  2. Hey Michelle! Wow! Africa!!? I am totally taken aback. You will love it. I've never been, but I have heard great things from friends. Can't wait to read about your journey.
