our new adventure

Last fall Ben came home one day and told me his boss presented him with the idea of an expat in Singapore.  A two year assignment (which actually started as one and a half year assignment that Ben used as a bait and switch to get me to agree!) despite his tactics this opportunity would give his career a boost, give us a chance to save some money, and give us an opportunity to see a part of the world we would have never even dreamed of seeing.  Who would have thought that the possibility of spending Christmas with the fam on an exotic beach in Indonesia or Thailand was ever an option?!  Well now it is because here we are.  After many weeks of praying, attending the temple, listing the pros and cons, and accepting a major emotional battle on my part (more on that in a later post), we accepted.  We jumped on to this once in a lifetime opportunity. We are both excited and nervous for this adventure.  An adventure that will bring our family even closer together, allow us to make lifelong friends, and create memories that will last forever.  And so, our adventure begins... 14 hours away from family, away from friends, away from any norm we know.  Here we are, that little red dot, on the other side of the world.
