Poland, Here We Come!

Today, well today is a very bittersweet day. This morning I said a tearful goodbye to Robert as he is off to start our new and exciting adventure. 

 via

Robert left this afternoon for Lublin, Poland...the place we will call home until next May! After lots of prayers and lots of discussion, we found out {about two weeks ago} that Lublin would be our new home and we are thrilled. We are so excited to live in a new place, embrace a new culture and fill our days with lots of basketball and lots of exploring. 

Robert actually played in Poland his first year {the year before we were married} and really loved the country, it's culture and of course, it's food. I have never been but hearing his stories, makes me even more excited to go.

I will be in the states for another two months before I meet him there. I am so happy I get to stay for some really fun and important events here, but I sure will miss that husband of mine more than I can say. When we were engaged we were apart for nine months {besides seeing each other over Christmas}and there are so many people who are apart for way, way longer. Two months will surely seem like nothing and will fly by...but despite that there were still many tears from yours truly this morning. Being apart from your husband is just no fun! BUT it will be okay. AND I can treasure my time here in the states with loved ones, which makes me so, so happy and grateful.


A huge positive? Robert will be able to get everything situated before I get there...apartment, wifi, car, phone, etc. And more importantly, he will be able to focus on work outs and practices 100% without me there which will be really beneficial to him. And thank goodness for facetime...a lifesaver!

I am so proud of him and the work and passion that he puts into his career and our marriage. I am so thankful for you Roberto. 

We are so grateful that he has the opportunity to play another year, to continue doing what he loves and to explore our little hearts out a bit more. 

Poland, here we come!

Have you been to Poland? Lived or visited there? If so, any must see places? We would love to know!
