Sometimes my own anxieties and fears get in the way of how incredibly blessed I am to have this experience. I forget that I’m an American girl given the opportunity to live in another country. My every day life is simple but different and in sync with the culture around me. Today I took the moment to look around and really see how beautiful the view from my backyard really is. The same place I see EVERY single day while walking our (American) dog, Harley. A view I certainly take for granted every day. Starting today, I will be 100 times more appreciative of the life I have and really just try to live in the moment! Here’s my everyday life…enjoy!
