Time is on my side...or is it?

Although it is well past Christmas and New Year's now I just wanted to say...

I am so thankful my husband and I were able to go spend Christmas this year with my family as it may be the last Christmast we get to do that for a few years. (praying that is not the case)

My parents will be moving back to the US after living in the UK for about 6 years. They've spent long periods of time away from the UK while I have stayed on so in many ways I am prepared to be apart from them; however, I think there will definitely be times when the ocean of distance between me and my parents and siblings will seem a bit overwhelming. Visits will not be as frequent as either side would like.

The next 2 months will fly by...

Absence makes the heart grow...

So it has kind of been a while since I last updated.

Work has been keeping me pretty busy. I'm trying to be more pro-active with my interests but to be honest I'm not a very pro-active person. I've started my other blog (the one primarily about cooking) and I've got a voice lesson booked in for this month with a vocal teacher. Two things I told myself I wanted to do before my 25th birthday which is fast approaching. I've also take a couple very very small steps towards starting up a contact group for American women living in the North East. So in some ways, this pro-active thing is working.

My intent through this next year is to really try to battle my natural instinct to just sit by and let stuff happen or not happen and to try to be actively doing and searching.

So here goes :)
