03\/03\/09\nWell, its been a long time since I’ve seen everyone… Its been 3 months since I’ve touched down in my new country Samoa… I had sooo many things to say, but when you only have 10min left to use the net… ahhhh, well you get my drift..\nSamoa, in some ways, wasnt what I expected it to be. Lets just say Love hides ALOT! and it wasn’t until the wedding died down, and my family left that the REAL samoa presented itself… Dont get me wrong, I love my husband soooo damn much, he’s the only reason why Im still here, getting bitten by the monster mozzies… but everything else seems… unreal…. in a bad way LOL\nWas the move worth it?\nYes in a way, as to tell you the truth, the struggles we’re having here is bringing us together. Our bond is stronger than ever. I guess its the fact that I no longer have the power to just go to the ATM whenever I want and withdraw money that is always there…. or pop down the road to famz n friends whenever I feel like a bitching session… LOL freedom is lost, but other feelings replace it.\nI’ve had a big wake up call being here, and everyday I learn new things about LIFE that I wouldn’t even have been able to go through back home in NZ. So many things I took for granted back home, but those same things I cherish here, now in Samoa.\nAm I Happy?\nMarriage-wise, I am the happiest wife there is on this planet! my husband is the most loving person there is! I kinda had some insane moments a while back, and a good friend and a honourary bro pulled me out of it! Yep Kilifi! he’s like my mentor & councillor. We’ve had enough coffee outings that Im sure Ima stay awake for the rest of the week! hahahaha… but its good, even if I have this 1 friend in Samoa with me, thats all I need!\nSo as I sit here, next to my buddy Kilifi,\u00a0bashing the keyboard with\u00a0my ramblings\u00a0as fast as I can before my time runs out, still waiting for the coffee we ordered 20minutes ago… LOL. I think about what I left behind, I think about how easy it is to give up and go back, I think about the money waiting to be made back home,\nbut then I think about my husband, the man I chose to spend the rest of my life with….\nAnd I decide to stay, for as long as it takes…. Im staying here…\n\u00a0\n\n[ad#bloggerid]\n\n\nCherry K reflects on love, family and her proverbial 'past' as she prepares for the big day.
