With exactly one month to go until we arrive at Amsterdam airport I can’t help but feel a bit emotional. I dream about the reunion with my family almost every night and I love thinking about that moment when they will meet their youngest grandchild for the very first time, so special. When you move to the other side of the world airports definitely become a place of mixed emotions.
When we leave Adelaide Airport and walk through the sliding doors in Amsterdam we’re always excited and warmly welcomed, when we leave we are very sad to say goodbye knowing it will be another couple of years until we meet again. At the same time it’s good to be back on Australian soil and walk into your own lovely, familiar, cosy home after a long and very exhausting flight.
Next month marks eight year since I moved to Australia. I still can’t believe I agreed to move to the other side of the world, to live in a country I had never been to and marry a man I had only just met. It was the best decision of my life and I wouldn’t change my Aussie life with my beautiful husband and 4 precious children for the world. I will never forget the sight of that incredibly nervous, handsome young man waiting at the airport holding a bunch of pretty tulips to make his Dutch fiancee feel at home, I’ve had a soft spot for tulips ever since.
If you want to surprise someone special (or spoil yourself) with a gorgeous bunch of flowers too it doesn’t get much easier than www.freshflowers.com.au, they deliver fresh flowers Australia wide and same day delivery is available (just check your area at the top of the website). I love how their Fresh Flowers Facebook page shows the flowers being cut and bouquets being arranged in store, just beautiful!
Stay tuned for some photos of our reunited family next month!
