the BIG news



gene and i are moving to new zealand!!!

the stars are aligned, the synchronicities of events leading towards our dream is unfolding magically. i didn't want to announce it here until we're really certain about this big decision, and yes, now we can confidently say that "we are ready!" remember the mondo beyondo list i did in march here? moving to new zealand was at the top of my list and woohoo hoo... it's happening!

both gene's parents and mine have given their full blessings for the big move.

we will be engaging christopher noakes, consultant from immagine to help us with the process and it will take about 12-18 months before we get there. we met chris monday to access our eligibility to migrate, and we exceeded the qualification needed and chris was even confident that a residency was almost a guaranteed! yay!

we have been talking nothing much except new zealand after that monday. it will be a big change! leaving everything behind to start a new life is a BIG decision. but our hearts are already there and the calling is stronger now than ever. we have been thinking about it for a couple of years now and well, the mondo beyondo faeries are finally answering our calls.

there will be lots to do from now on, we are praying that it will be a smooth and easy transition for us. the to do list is getting longer and longer!! yikes!

new life, new opportunities, new adventure! exciting!! i'll probably be blogging about our BIG MOVE as well, so hope that you will join us on our journey!
