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...

Cindervella sounds like something James would say.

I would take the approach with your summer clothes that they tell first year college students - lay it all out then put 1/2 away. Seriously - you won't need more than 5 days worth of summer clothing. Also, if you have anything you love, was expensive, or looks really nice - don't take it. The washing machines suck over there and your stuff will get ruined. I also wasn't a fan of their dry cleaning, which was also ridiculously expensive. We are happy to store anything for you. Besides, if you don't see a few things for 2 years, it will be like coming home to an entirely new wardrobe that you didn't have to go spend lots of moolah on!

Vella is so cute! She looks so cuddly! I think Cindervella is a perfect name for her! Good luck getting everything ready for the big move. You will have LOTS to blog about!

Bideawee is the best. Our neighbor in East Quogue is a huge supporter. Good luck with your packing -sorry we will miss an opportunity to connect in person this summer, but maybe one day!

Thanks for your kind comment about my friend, Meg.
