I never ever, ever, everrrrrrrrrrr thought I'd say this, but...
I've been missing the U.K.
Don't get me wrong; life in Nashville is good. Oh man, it's so good!
But like every other human, the change in seasons makes me nostalgic. In my case, the nostalgia is always a longing for wherever I was the year prior. And last year, I was in London. And although I have only marginally nice things to say about the city :) November in London was a magical month of transitions. It was the only time of year where the soggy, chilly weather seemed to be just right. Mid-month we'd throw an American Thanksgiving, where friends of all nationalities would join us (we were able to give some friends their first Thanksgiving - how cool is that!?). Then by the end of the month, Christmas would be in full-swing, Love Actually-style.
So it is selfishly perfect timing that two wonderful friends are getting married in Liverpool this weekend (hi, Sharon and Lee!). This is giving us a great excuse to visit some cities that I never saw when living in the U.K., so combine my friends with new cities and my longing for soggy leaves, and I am quite excited.
So please excuse the short post this week. And also, please forgive the little email snafu last Friday; it was a technical glitch. Okay, okay. User error is possible, but let's say technical glitch :) The article about organization was released for real on Monday, so check it out.
Regularly-scheduled content will be back next week before we break for Thanksgiving. I hope that you too are soaking up the leaves and change of season this November. Take in the heartiness and warmth of the season, and enjoy!
