We're going to Italy!

Ciao a tutti! (Hello to all!)

Yes, it's official. I've been offered and have accepted a 2 year assignment to Italy! I'll still be working for the same company, but one other engineer and I are going over to provide technical and business support working with another company. This is a bit of a career change - I'm going from management back to engineering for this job - but it's a fantastic opportunity to live and work and travel in Europe.

So, later this year, Patrick, Brandon and I will be packing up our house, renting it out and finding a new home somewhere in the Milan area. With all of the relocation and immigration bureaucracy, we probably won't be going until November at the earliest and the end of the year at the latest. Our dog Tasha will be going to live with Patrick's sister Heather and her family in Colorado and we're looking for a new home for our cat Stevie.

There is so much to do and yet it's kind of a "hurry up and wait" situation right now. We should be focused on our cruise in 10 days but it's gotten a bit overshadowed by this new adventure ahead of us. Life brings lots of interesting twists and turns, doesn't it?
