Quiet Phase

About a month ago, Matt reached out to a colleague about a job at his company's international headquarters near Zurich, Switzerland. Two weeks ago, he accepted the job. We are now in what I am calling the "Quiet Phase" of our move. We know we're moving, we're working through sharing the news with family and close friends, but it isn't public knowledge. The contract hasn't been signed. Our visas haven't yet come through.

I haven't shared it on facebook.

My boss doesn't know.

We'll Do It, Someday.

My husband, Matt, lived abroad in college. He spent three months in a small French town taking classes at a local university and weekend trips to Rome and Paris. He left feeling cultured and well-traveled. Which, for a middle-class college student from small town Ohio, he most certainly was.
