It's Official!

I woke this morning to see a new email in my inbox with the subject 'Congratulations!'. I eagerly scanned the email from Kristen at the Bhutan Canada Foundation that revealed - finally - that our application to live as volunteers in the Kingdom of Bhutan next year has been successful!

A year in the planning, at times it has pushed my patience to the limit, however lately I had come to a place where I knew in my heart we would be accepted and have been feeling quietly excited. Although we shared the plans with our family and a few close friends, it is a pleasure now to let all our friends and colleagues know what we've been dreaming about for the past year.

Having enjoyed my sister's blog from her family's year in the UK and USA , and my sister-in-law's blog sharing their experience of settling into life in Italy, I am very excited to write my own blog to report on our experiences as well. I'm so excited that I can't wait until we get to Bhutan to start writing: I have so much to write already, so I hope I have a few readers who would like to follow our adventure.

Stay tuned to find out how this whole crazy idea began...
