Are we there yet?

The apartment looks like a bomb went off at some point this week. We have piles everywhere that need to be boxed up and find their way to JFK. Thank goodness we have movers coming tomorrow to pack up our air shipment. Matt flies to London tomorrow night and picks up the keys to our apartment (ok, ok, FLAT) on Friday. I'll be able to come up for air on Thursday and Friday, and share some updates and pictures. It will be me and Vella hanging out for the next few months in NYC!

I can't wait to spend the weekend catching up on blogs. I know there's a lot of exciting stuff going on out there.

Happy Valentines Day

We're having a quiet day in WH! It's a bittersweet weekend since the listing for the Summer rental will go up this week. I think Matt is more upset than I am about someone else enjoying the Summer out here in our getaway. I keep reminding him that we'll be able to head South to France or Spain, or the English Coast, on weekends if we get tired of exploring London.

We have about a foot of snow on the ground out here, so it's ironic that I'm packing up my Summer clothes for air shipment to the UK in the next week or so. I have a feeling that I won't be wearing 90% of it in London since it's never that warm there in the Summer.

No apartment news. We told the estate agents that everything has to be tied up by EOD Monday or we will pull our bids / start over when Matt arrives in about 10 days. Craziness. It's a bizarre market.

And before I forget, we met Vella at Bideawee one year ago today! We brought her home on the 15th. She's the best decision we ever made together and we can't imagine life without her. My MIL has nicknamed her "Cindervella" since she is quite the princess. TN to WH to NYC to London?!? She hit the jackpot. It's very hard being her...

Brilliant! Gorgeous! Mad! Posh!

Watch out London, here come the Rosedales! And yes, that includes our crazy little fur child. I don't know if they're ready for Vella over there.

Yes, that's the big news. We're moving to London. It's crazy and we're crazy excited! We spent Wednesday - Sunday of last week looking for an apartment, er, I mean flat. It isn't sorted out yet, but I will share details as soon as I have some good news. Because the past three days have been filled with nothing but disappointing phone calls with estate agents...I know we won't be homeless, but it's been a bizarre experience so far. Do I have stories about some of the places we saw!

The husband moves in two, yes that's TWO, weeks. I'll follow in 10-12 weeks once I'm able to sort out renting our house, selling the furniture in our apartment, and finding a job (minor detail, right?!?).

I can't wait to write more over the weekend and catch up on the past few weeks of blogs. Cheers!
