Taking a chance....

I have thrown caution to the wind. I have made a decision that will alter my path in life. I have given notice at my job, with a company I have been with for 10 years, to go into the unknown (well kinda known) and go to Istanbul Turkey and stay with my little sister for a few months. I look forward to the new things I will be learning and the excitement of learning a whole different culture. I will also have the opportunity to travel in Europe which is a dream of mine. Anybody that has followed my blog knows that my word for the year is "Discover". Well that is what I am doing. I still have a month to go at my job but soon enough.....
