'Homa to España.
J.D. and I are so excited to officially (and by 'officially' I mean via social media) announce that we are moving to Spain at the end of August for 10 months!!! As some of you know, I studied abroad in Spain during the summer of 2010 and had to return home early and unexpectedly to the States due to my father passing away in a tragic accident. It's been a goal of mine ever since then to go back and fulfill my dream of becoming fluent in Spanish and traveling Europe. Desire for adventure was something my dad instilled in me and he was so happy that I was seeking it during his final days on Earth. And I'm not finished yet.
I have been accepted into a Masters program at the University of Alcalá (pictured above), the same University where I studied last time I was over there, in the area of Madrid. It's a Teach and Learn program, so while I take classes I will also be teaching English to Spanish students as an internship towards my Masters degree in Multicultural and Bilingual Education. While I'm busy with this program, J will continue to do freelance graphic design. He's been working so hard the last several months to build relationships with many different clients so that he will be able to work remotely for the next year. I'm so thankful that he has a job that he can pretty much do from anywhere!
During the last few months we've been so busy with planning and checking the things off our list that need to get done before we leave the country. Last week our visas were mailed in, which was the final step we were waiting on to make it official, this past weekend we moved out of our wonderful rent home in Oologah and moved in with our parents until we fly out in less than a month, and today I gave my two weeks notice at my job. It's all happening SO fast.
We will be keeping you updated throughout this entire process and we ask those of you who pray to please keep us in your prayers during these last few weeks of final preparations and lots of time with our loved ones.
