It has been two whole years since I left London with my 5 month old baby and waved goodbye to hubby at the airport, not knowing when he would be back with us.
It has been two years to the day since we landed back in SA and delved into the unknown.
It has been two years of ups and downs, happy’s and sad’s and incredible adventures. I am constantly amazed by how time flies by in an instant, and yet it feels like eons have passed.
In those two years since we’ve been back:
We moved into our little townhouse in Hilton
We found out we were pregnant
We went to some awesome weddings
We celebrated one year of life
We celebrated new life
I started Baby Bird Basics
We survived a family holiday to CT (just!)
I launched my freelance graphic design business website
We have shared the journey with amazing friends, some old (my dear Jozi girls and SF come to mind) and some new – supportive like-minded ladies from my moms-group; online buddies who I haven’t even met and who show me so much love through the computer (!), and then those who started off as mainly-online friends but who have transformed into real life inspirations and motivators (Nicola, Colleen and Keri to name a few) – you guys all play a big part in our happiness now that we’ve settled back in SA… thank you!
I do miss London though, I wont lie. I miss it’s conveniences and variety. I miss it’s culture. I miss it’s unlimited cell phone contracts, gaaaahhhhhh! (Death to PAYG!) I miss my friends there and so much more, but all in all I think that coming back to SA was the best thing we have done.
To wake up each morning on this beautiful continent – UNBEATABLE.
