Hi Ms Leila, I sometimes wonder how you're going on the other side of the world.

Freezing! It may be warming up back home but over here we are getting ready for winter and it's going to be a cold one. We already have snow in the mountains.

Hey Leila - welcome back smile.gif

How is Seattle? Is it very different from Oz? Are you planning on staying there long term? What do you love about the US and what do you miss from Oz?

Hi smile.gif

Seattle is a really beautiful place to live in. Actually anywhere in the northwest is pretty nice. It's green all year round and massive pine trees everywhere. Currently we are in Autumn and it's getting quite cold. Lately it hasn't really been getting much over 10-12C and it's snowing in the mountains. I do love the obvious season changes, here are some pics from the beginning of August.

We are planning on staying long term. We are currently looking at about 10 years total, so that is almost 8 to go. We want to be fairly financially secure before we return to Australia. That's the plan for now but it might change.

The think I love most about America is that everything is open all the time. It doesn't matter what time it is you can always find a supermarket, pharmacy, Starbucks, fast food place etc that is open.

I miss a lot of different things from home. The weather, the people, the food. Thankfully I don't get much in the way of homesickness anymore. Some days are hard but mostly they're not smile.gif

It's been tough moving over here and transitioning to the way things are done but I'm glad we did it. I've seen and learnt so much since arriving over here. Can't wait to visit home though smile.gif

Hi and welcome back smile.gif Glad to hear you and hubby are still enjoying your time over there.

Caitlin loves playing with the little giraffe you sent for KK last year (although with her first birthday party yesterday there are lots of rivals smile.gif )

Hi and welcome back biggrin.gif

Also been wondering how Seattle was going, although I don't think I ever talked to you directly I remember following a thread about your move over there.

I am another that probably hasn't given enough of myself to receive back and that is probably why I don't have any really close friends on here either, even after 5&1/2 years on here ohmy.gif but half of that is because I am so worried about internet security I don't like to give too much away.

Love the photos too.
