Remember when I said I had more big news to share?
Well I can finally tell you what it is.
Drum roll please.......

I'm going to be living in Europe for seven months!!
Y'all. I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am.
I booked my flight earlier this morning so it's official!


I'll be traveling with Rachel for a few weeks and then teaching at the camp in Modena.
After that, I'll be an au pair in Spain for two months.
Then I'll be with another family in France until December!

Earlier this year when I was beginning to apply for teaching jobs, I just wasn't very excited.
I didn't really feel drawn to any specific area and I just wasn't ready to teach yet.
Then an au pair opportunity came up and it seemed like an answer to prayers.
The Lord worked out all of the details in a matter of two days.

One Friday, I was applying for jobs in Gwinnett.
The next Monday, I was looking into flights to go to Europe.
I am so extremely thankful and blessed to have this opportunity.
There will never be a better time for me to travel like this.
The families I will be living with are just the nicest people.
I already feel welcomed into their homes.

So now the tough stuff begins.
Visas, shipping luggage, packing for seven months (really freaking out about this), etc.
There are so many little things I have to do in the next 65 days.
Any suggestions or advice would be extremely helpful!

Thank you to those of you who have already helped me out!
Hope y'all are having an awesome Tuesday!
I know I sure am :)
