I grew up in Minnesota, yet some people are surprised to learn that of all the seasons, winter is my least favorite. In fact, I mostly hate it. Never in a million years did I think I would be living here again. Alas, here we are, on our last stepping stone before becoming permanent expats. To begin the new year on a fresh start, and hopefully the next new phase in my life (and our lives), I have resolved to think more positively about life in general. In that sense, I can hold onto our last days here with a sentimental grasp - savoring every experience here as our last.
