If you’ve been following my rather sporadic updates, you’ll know that our little family had recently made the very spontaneous decision to leave our adopted home in the UK and move thousands of miles away to somewhere we’ve never lived before. Well, on May 24th, we boarded our plane in Heathrow and made our dream a reality.
Of course, all has not gone EXACTLY according to plan, and we’ve had a few hiccups along the way. But for some reason, I’ve found it very hard to really write about it all. So, to keep everything up to date and to just wipe the slate clean and start fresh, I figured the best thing to do is to acknowledge that we HAVE moved, we ARE acclimating and we WILL be great.
But since I haven’t the time or energy to write a huge post about it, I figured I’d just share our story in pictures. I’ll update properly when I’ve had a chance to digest the whole experience and get used to the time change!
Really, there is so much to share, but the last few days have been spent mostly house hunting, car shopping, and trying to figure out how this whole “living in America” thing works! Forgive me, as it’s been a while!
I really have so much on my mind, but the truth is that it would take more time than I have to properly explain what is going through my mind. So for now, I am spending my time thinking. I am trying out recipes I couldn’t make in England for lack of specific ingredients. I’m enjoying the Gluten Free sections of our local supermarkets. I’m researching hurricanes to figure out whether or not I need to be afraid of the thunder that has plagued us the last two days. And mostly, I am just sitting back and enjoying the fact that I am now a REpatriate.
