Where in the world is Kjersten?

A friend emailed me that question last week (sorry I haven't responded yet, Angi!).

Answer: Issaquah, Washington, spending a few days with my sister, brother-in-law and mom before I leave for Malaysia.

Not a very exotic answer (although there's some exotic-ness to where I've recently been, but more on that later). I'm fresh back from a month traveling around with my awesome little nearly-three year old son, spending time with beloved family and friends before we leave for Malaysia. I wanted to check in so no one thought I'd fallen off the edge of the world or anything.

I'll be up in Bellingham tomorrow to take care of some last minute stuff and then -- Saturday in the wee hours of the night, my son Oscar and I will leave to fly over the ocean to join my husband in Malaysia.

I'm ready.

I miss my husband. I miss my work. Time for the next chapter of my own story.

I'll share more soon.
