This is it: we moved out of our house yesterday, packed our bags and are ready (while also being totally exhausted) for our summer vacation.

I can tell you, moving week is not fun, especially not with two kids who may or may not know what’s going on. But my more experienced expat friend told me that moving week is the worst week of the entire repatriation process. So she better be right!!!

I’m going to take a couple of weeks off from blogging – to enjoy the summer and vacation time with my family, to think things through (or not), to create a new kind of normal, to prepare myself for coming back to Germany. I’m still going to share pictures of our trip to San Francisco, the California coast, Maui and a very brief return to Chattanooga on Instagram and Facebook, if you are interested to follow along. And I’ll see you back here in a couple of weeks.

I’m wishing you a great summer with your loved ones!
