The one where we said goodbye to Dubai

Tomorrow I go off to do my favorite thing: pack and organize! And in all fairness, only one of those is really my favorite thing (the latter), but I seem to do the former a lot. But that’s okay! Just means we get to go to plenty of new and different places 🙂

I will be making the eleven hour flight from PER to DXB (direct, yall!) to pack up and say good bye to the UAE. As I mentioned before, this is a bittersweet move as we have loved our time in Dubai and met some incredible friends and seen some amazing places. When we went to Dubai for a portion of our honeymoon almost three years ago, I dont think either of us ever dreamed that we would be back…to live. Inshallah this won’t be our last visit to Dubai.

Dubai - I'll miss you!

Dubai – we’ll miss you!

Leaving Dubai is already looking to be a challenge as many of our utilities and documents are in my husband’s name, leaving me in a bit of a pickle until he gets there…so yall know what that means? That’s right: packing and organizing! I thought maybe beach time, but given that the heat index is tipping in at around 110F, I may pass…there’s always shopping! 😉 Shhh, just dont tell Barr!

Cant believe it's almost been one year since we moved to the UAE

Given all of this, there may be some sporadic posts over the next week as we ship items back to the states, try to sell furniture, close bank accounts, cancel visas, etc, but I’ll be back, and with one less apartment to concern myself with in this big ol’ world! TGIF and until next time…
