Happy Birthday!


     My birthday happened over the weekend, May 4th to be more precise... I wish I had posted on the day, but time just ran out on me!
     I wasn't prepared to have any big celebration this year, but my very good friends thought it is an opportunity worth celebrating, especially since I will be leaving Munich pretty soon.
     We had a karaoke evening at Shamrock Irish Pub and truly enjoyed ourselves. There have been a lot of laughter, extraordinary gifts, beautiful wishes and inevitably some tears. Tears obviously came out when I realized, once again, what a lucky person I am!
     I am surrounded by amazing people, genuine friends and wonderful family! This is a thing that I value enormously and will forever take with me, no matter where life may take me. These beautiful people and the connection that we are sharing are going to be terribly missed.
     Yes, of course, life goes on, but I have been trough this once before. I know already that it is not easy to separate and let go of everything that is familiar... All the joys and comfort of this place and all the people in it.
     I must admit, I may have taken our  'moving to Abu Dhabi' a little too easy, thinking ahead on what is awaiting for me there, but not really taking a moment to consider what I am leaving behind.
     3 years is a lot of time. A lot of things have happened here. We lived here. We made good friends. Experienced. Discovered ourselves. We committed to one another. Made the biggest step of our lives here, getting married. We made a home.
     As much as I tried to hide it, I must admit it will be hard leaving our home and every memory we created here.

     All of that being said, here's to starting a new stage of our lives. To the thrill of new discoveries and experiences. To living life beautifully. To happiness and all of the accomplishments to come...  We are as ready as we'll ever be! :)

P.S.  Once again, thank you to all of our friends! Looking forward to the next time we'll see each other!
