Jumping to December

One word for November - work. So let's fast forward to December. We got away for some sun a few weeks ago and spent 8 days in Oman. Amazing. The countryside, the coast, the people, the was all amazing. We also officially kicked off a month of eating too much, but well worth it when I look at that bread and hummus.

Let's Start with October

We're healthy and happy here in London! Just getting back in the swing of things after guests and trips. The past few months went by so quickly, so let's back up to October.

In early October, we flew home for a long weekend to watch Matt's sister walk down the aisle. It was an incredibly stressful trip for me. Our renters agreed to stay in NYC for the weekend and let us use the house. This seemed like a great idea because the wedding was on Eastern Long Island and the stay would give us a chance to check on the house. Wrong. I won't get in to the details, but it was not a relaxing weekend in my house. The renters are only there on the weekends, but they've definitely made themselves at home in more ways than I would like!

A few weeks later, my parents made a weekend stop in London on their way to Germany. We celebrated my Mom's 60th birthday a few weeks early and enjoyed exploring London. One of the highlights was an afternoon at the Imperial War Museum. If you're ever in London, I recommend adding this to your itinerary.

And, to round out the month, Matt and spent Halloween weekend in Munich. The weather was gorgeous (bright blue skies and just a little chill in the air), which always makes a new place that much better. Munich is a beautiful city with great people and scenery. The beer and abundance of pork were also Rosedale favorites. Some pictures from the Hofbrauhaus (note the giant pretzel) and Glockenspiel:

On to November and December soon, and then I promise more regular updates.
