Grown Woman

My parents also flew in on Thursday, for a quick visit. We spent all day yesterday at education week together, and after dessert, I went with them to stay at their friends', the Landwards, house. I snuggled with my little sister Emma, who is now a grown woman! Crazy! We haven't spent nearly enough time together over the past 11 years. Yep, it's been 11 years, since I moved to the United States. Again, crazy! My mom really loves the Parade of Homes, so we spent this afternoon looking at some fun houses. We saw a bunch of really modern homes, which just reminded me of my home land. I do miss Holland occasionally, and Joe and I would love to move there for a few years. My parents and I were talking about all the thing Joe and I would like to do in the future. Like, living in Holland, getting an MBA, moving to Colorado, buy rental houses etc. This is where they gave me this great idea, that we could combine some of these. What if we move to Holland, Joe gets his MBA there, we buy rental houses for extra income, and move to Colorado as soon as we come back from Europe. Sounds good to me! Now we just have to work out logistics. You know... like sell our house, get accepted to school, find a job, buy some houses, and a whole lot more. But the idea gets me really excited!
