Finishing Chapter One

A day anticipated and yet met with some disbelief, happiness, sadness and emotions one can’t expect to know before the day itself happens.

The day my husband and I swap places…
I’ve lived in Holland since November 2015 and now, he will be moving to Saskatchewan.
Two, dramatically different places for two (at times), dramatically different people.

(Opposites attract right πŸ˜πŸ˜‰)

As most events of this size, it doesn’t really ‘feel’ real.
We have packed up and unpacked and said goodbyes and traveled so often, that it’s hard for the important moments of same genre to stick out as monumental.

I can now say I understand the feeling of being the reason behind someone else’s goodbye pain and it’s pretty much as uncomfortable as being the one ‘taken’ away.

So much for having fewer emotions to deal withπŸ™„πŸ™ˆ

As we begin this new part of our adventurous (possibly, slightly less adventurous😬😜) life, we say thank you to those who played a huge part in the first while of our married life.

Family is easily taken for granted at times but having the novelty of never even considering hesitation before asking for advice/time/help while in Holland is something we both appreciated and say thank you forπŸ’•

As we journey farther away from this side of the family, we know we still have that novelty, even if time difference will hinder it slightly.

(I’ll teach him about prime messaging times πŸ˜‰)

I’m sure my upcoming posts will be scattered with our cravings and missed things from Holland and yes… we do have the ability to get mail in Canada πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‹

This was a large chapter in our book… a post on our blog so to speak 😜 (pathetically lame, I knowπŸ™ˆ) but as I do with most books, I reread them… the time in Holland won’t be forgotten.

It was a time of learning, growth, struggles and good times, truly a once in a lifetime kind of experience (maybe I’ll get into that someday when I don’t have enough to write about after being in the country for a few months πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹) and it’s hard to believe this part is ending and now we don’t really know what our future holds once again… but thankfully we know there is a God who holds our future in His hands and we pray and trust that this is the right step
and that He will comfort all involved.

(This is placed under Jem Moments, not because it’s all good and lovely but because it’s a moment unlike our everyday lives. Yes I am happy and do count it as a partial Jem Moment but I can’t deem it a full one, knowing how it affects the others involved ❀️)

The Future Awaits/Waiting For Our Future

Monday Jan 16th –


As I sat upon the couch with my morning coffee, about to set up the laptop and work on the blog, the front door began rattling and I curiously awaited who would appear from behind it since Mike was supposed to be at work at the office, but he is also the only one with a key?

Mike came in and greeted me with a smile and I confusedly asked him why he was back, thinking there must have been heavy traffic and he just decided to work from the house, but this was not the case.

Turns out, he and his bosses had a talk and after much thought and prayer on our part, he will no longer be working with the same company he was.
It was something we were planning on, just perhaps not expecting it to all take place this soon, but we know God is in control and we are believing that this is His way of opening up some paths and helping us plan our future/job/Canada move etc. etc.

‘Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.’ Proverbs 16:3.

(But, this now means I’ll be stuck with him 24/7 until any other plans are made and for this reason I may start sounding even crazier then I usually do, just a warning 😜)

Since he was back at the house anyways, I gave him a task to complete which I knew he would be much better at then I. Continue reading “The Future Awaits/Waiting For Our Future”
