Nearly a month.

It’s been nearly a month since my last blog post. I’m not okay with this. At all.

Especially, because since then, I’ve celebrated my birthday at least three times, turned in my dissertation, attended the weddings of two lovely couples (one of which was the Brit’s sister and I felt so honored to be one of only two people to have seen her dress prior to the day and to be her official dress lacer-upper), celebrated the end of the Olympics and Paralympics by watching the parade of athletes with one of my good friends while stood amongst the crowds in London, and a host of other things.

To say the least, it has been a whirlwind of events and emotions. And, I’ve wanted to write another blog post since September 3rd when I submitted my dissertation, but I’ve been overwhelmed. Where do I start?! I have so much to say. So much running through my head. And, not just about everything I’ve been experiencing, but about what I’ve been feeling and observing.

Because, along with all of what I listed above, I also celebrated one year since moving to England. That just seems crazy to me. One year. It went so fast.

So, why today? Why start writing again today? Well, no reason really other than I didn’t want to wait another day. My new goal is to post once a day for the next month. I realize this could require some pre-planning on my part as we have a getaway planned for the last weekend in September, but I know I can do this and I really want to do this, which is the most important part.

I’m excited to get back to writing the blog and sharing more about life here. I hope to re-cap some of the fun we’ve already had and the fun we plan to have in the next few months (hello, two trips to the Caribbean and our wedding!!!). So, to my loyal readers out there (I know there aren’t many of you, but I do appreciate each of you that does read — thank you!)…I AM BACK!

P.S. And, to the Brit, your sweet text last week about missing my blog posts really lit a fire under my bum, too. So, thank you for always encouraging me and getting me back to where you know I like to be. xx

P.P.S. The Holiday is on ITV2 right now, which is one of my all-time favorite American girl meets British guy movies, so if you haven’t seen it, then I recommend it as a great rom-com with some super cute old man thrown in for good measure. Have you seen it? Did you like it?

  1. I LOVE The Holiday, although I can never choose which house I want to live in (the English one, I suppose, if it comes with a built-in Jude Law…).
    Congrats on handing in the dissertation – I can remember how amazing it feels to be done!

    • Oh, I know what you mean about the houses! I love sweet English cottages like that, BUT because the weather has been so shocking here, I might opt for LA at this point in time just for some sun! 🙂

      And, thanks for the congrats on my dissertation!

  2. Yay! Welcome back to Blogland!
    I was “eh” about The Holiday when I saw it (not long after it came out on dvd) but I guarantee it’s going to go into my rotation of “I miss England and want a good sob-fest pity party” stack of films after our move- but Calendar Girls will always be at the top (yay for N Yorks!).
    This sounds like it’s been a fantastic month for you- can’t wait to hear more about it!!

  3. re the Holiday….LOVE IT!!! I can watch it like all winter long…and a few times in the summer too. The old man totally makes it for me.

    Also, I like the Brit more and more when I find out he misses your blog posts even while living with you!!! That’s sweet 🙂 I’m a sucker for the two of you and your sappiness.

    love you, Beck.

    • Oh good, Jen…glad to have another lover of the movie, and the cute old man! I tear up every time they open the doors to that theater full of people and you see his face!

      Really want you to meet Richard! After the baby arrives, I hope you and Joel will come and visit! Speaking of, when are you going to send me a bump pic?! 🙂 xo

I'd love to hear what you think, too! x
