Ours began as the classic ex-pat story in 2012. Darling husband got an overseas post; I went from Working Spouse to Trailing Spouse.

Now, one of the children is about to graduate from Uni in America; and the younger one calls Vienna, “Home.” As for the Foxhound, to whom we promised a dog-friendly life after a 9 hour flight in a plastic crate, he has zero plans to return to the U.S. So here we are.
