This post is dedicated to my husband Vince. That’s him waving from our bedroom window. I have to hand it to him, he has been great since this whole adventure began, supportive and behind me the whole way and ready to help in any way. Always with a smile on his face and a positive attitude through the whole transition. He has been a rock and I couldn’t have done it without him. He truly is one-of-a-kind and I am very grateful to have shared my life with him for the last 32 years! I love you!
We are almost ready to move into my family home, just a few more days of last minute touch ups. I am sure many of you know it is not easy going through a renovation and even though we’ve had our ups and downs, in the end it all turned out fine and worth the wait and occasional aggravation. We are both looking forward to this new chapter in our lives, one which I hope will be filled with great memories, not only for the two of us but also for my aunt Bardha and uncle Deda. In these last years of their lives it feels good to know that we can provide them with some constant company and will be available to them if and when the need should arise. My cousin Gjilda has been a trooper through all this as well and she certainly merits our respect and affection. Once we’re fully moved in and settled we will concentrate on exploring more of what this beautiful country has to offer. Until then….
