How many of us get to say, "Today I am starting a great adventure!"? Tear it up, sister.

karlene said...

At Erika's request, I am stopping by to bid you farewell.

Moving is always exciting!!! I have moved over 20 times and each time, I find it super thrilling. I have never moved to a new country though, just new states and cities, so although I am certain it will be exciting, there will be some uncertainties along the way, but what better that you get to do this with your best friend, whom I am certain is the love of your life!! I will say a prayer for your safety and will look forward to checking back to hear about your exciting tales.

Godspeed!!!

I've always enjoyed your blog, I've been a silent until now. I wish you all the best in, Malaysia. I grew up in Saudi Arabia as a child and I loved the cultural experience life provided while living overseas! I hope you both enjoy it, I can't wait to read your future blogs! =) Safe travels...

Courtney, I grew up in Houston and have loved reading your blog. I love your spirit and am definitely wishing you Godspeed today. Prayers for traveling mercies and rich blessings on the other side!

Devon said...

Is it weird to say that I'm simultaneously scared and thrilled for you? Scared only because I imagine the journey away from friends and family is a difficult one. Thrilled because the idea of world traveling, and learning a new culture, is unbelievably crazy wonderful. How I hope that we would have the same courage to pick up and see the world were such an opportunity afforded.

I absolutely cannot wait to see and hear about your new life. Nothing but the best of luck to you both!

Claire said...

Wow - I can't believe it's real! I am secretly a little jealous of your ability to up and go and be so incredibly open to it and upbeat about a move across the globe. But of course you are, because you are the amazing Courtney! I can't wait to hear all about your adventure. Good luck, and you are, as always, in my prayers!

The Lil Bee said...

Courtney!! I'm so sorry I missed saying a proper farewell to you before your flight. I know it must be bittersweet, to say it mildly. I can't wait to see all of the adventures that unfold for you in your new home. Just think, you're slowly managing to make a little home for yourselves all over the world...what could be sweeter than that?! xxoo

Erynn said...

Good luck, girl!! I can't wait to hear about your adventures halfway across the world. It will be such a wonderful experience for you both.
