I love Australia. I think I've made that very clear here.
But I would just like to say, when it comes down to it, it's not where you are - it's who you're with.
Back in the States, I never imagined life could ever be this good. I will be forever grateful to The Bloke for his infinite understanding and caring as I blunder through life and Australia just trying to figure out what it all means.
And to everyone else - Down Under and Up Over - who has understood my journey, the mistakes I need to make so I can learn and the reasons I needed to leave where I grew up: you are all amazing to me.
It's who you're with.
