July 4th, 2012 is my official 2 year anniversary in Panama.
Unofficially, I celebrate July 1st.
I moved here to help start up a new office in Panama City, Panama. I left behind my wonderful husband (Bigfoot) a wide array of friends (Girl Posse) and a simple life in Kernersvile, North Carolina. This was a temporary assignment, we were not prepared to move here full-time.

Here are some random things I learned:
1 - My Daddy and Mama did not raise a quitter. (Because believe you me I asked them and Bigfoot for the first 2 months if I could move back home)
2 - You're never too old to start a new chapter in life.
