|Puddle outside of our front door. Boo.|
The point to all this is that we realize sometimes our life can seem like a lot of travel, trips to the beach, and tapas hopping. People sometimes say to us that they are jealous or that it must be like a non-stop honeymoon. Except that Graham works full-time, we're renting a house that seems to always need repair, and it's an everyday battle to understand the language and culture of our nuevo home country.
What we're trying to say is that while we love it here, and we truly do, it's not always easy and it's not a 3-year vacation. We chose to live here (as much as you can choose anything in the Navy) and we are incredibly grateful for this amazing opportunity to experience España and travel around Europe. But while most of the time it is an absolutely wonderful life, it is also a real life. (Metaphor Alert!) So, there's a lot of sunshine, but some rainy days, too.
|A great dia, but not every dia.|
