I love London. It is a wonderful city with so much to do...you could never get bored. My favorite thing about London is the theatre shows. The last show we saw was Chicago and there is something special about seeing a great show in London...like the movies! The SoHo district is amazing and then China Town is just as wonderful. We occasionally travel to London to take in a show, grab some great food and lovely coffee street side so we can see the infamous taxi's and hightop buses. London is about 1 1/2 hours drive from where we live, however, if we take the Fast Virgin train, we can get to London in 45 minutes. The fast train goes 120mph and is awesome! Of course we had to do the touristy things as well so here are some shots of our touristy, Chicago show weekend. I heart LONDON!!
From city to village, from condo to cottage...documenting each new experience. From Atlanta, GA to Ryton-on-Dunsmore, UK, renovating an old cottage built in 1915 is just the start. I am learning to garden, cook, and now have my own tool belt. Along the way...there is something new everyday! I am an avid ballroom dancer...it is my passion. I will dance at any opportunity. I still play soccer...in my old age and can feel it the next morning more than I used to. O well...I will always love the sport. I also try and rock out at the piano everyday as my love for classical piano continues to grow and grow. I love anything that has to do with the arts and find that I am a bit creative...it seems to come out more and more. I know nothing about renovations, electrics, plumbing, gardening, cooking or anything else along those lines. I honestly don't even know if I like it yet...but I am trying really hard...learning more everyday. I hope you enjoy reading about my experiences...my days...my joys and my desperate moments where I want to escape!!! Lots of change in a year. A new country, a new house, a lovely new husband and now a wonderful little boy.
