Our time here has gone by so fast and yet it feels like a million years ago that we first got here. I mean, the memory of Houston is as far away in my mind as it is geographically far from Australia.
Please excuse me while I have some flash backs:
This is Matt's Corolla. He bought it in 1997. The only reason he sold it was because he had to since we were moving here. He was seriously crushed by having to part with his beloved car.
We decided to sell our house instead of rent it out and worry about it while overseas. It was a great house - I really loved it. On our last day in Houston, the movers finished packing up our stuff and we handed over the keys to the real estate agent. We drove directly from the house to the airport for our flight to LA.

|The body language says it all: Matt was not happy about saying goodbye to our happy yellow house.|
After a week, we moved out of the hotel and into our apartment. That was a great start! And as an added bonus, none of the windows in our apartment had curtains or blinds. When I would wake up when Matt was leaving for work in the morning, I would see this beautiful sight out our bedroom window:

I'm keen to see what adventures Year 2 in Australia has in store for us!
