“I didn’t actually go outside today so this is what you get. I will say that I believe it snowed from Sunday afternoon to this evening without stopping…hence the disappearing bench. DohDoh better get her soon so we can get snowed in together! More snow pictures tomorrow, I promise.”

February Fourth

Well today finally came…the day neither of us wanted to come. Somehow we thought it wouldn’t come as long as we didn’t think about it. But the truth is that Sarah is somewhere close to Odessa, Ukraine and will fly out early tomorrow morning (CET) and Marie is in Chișinau, Moldova furiously cleaning the house as a coping mechanism. It was a pretty rough goodbye and filled with rivers of tears yet we know we are both where we are supposed to be. Perhaps you could say the “real” blog begins because now we are doing what we created this blog to do – – each take a picture while living in different countries and then put them together, somehow bringing us just a little closer. Our pictures may seem a little melancholy at first, but bear with us…we will get better at this! And hope with us that December might see us in the same country to end this blog!

February Third

“She has on tights, long underwear, jeans, wool socks, long sleeve onesie, long sleeve shirt, sweatshirt, jacket, gloves, scarf and beanie! Oh and that’s a pacifier under her scarf.”

“My last full day here was spent running errands {walking in freezing snow, taking buses and hoping they were taking us where we thought they were…} and naturally finding one of the only “American” like coffee shop in the city. Missing my family already!”
