On Friday we had an appointment with Randy the Sales Manager for the builders of the community that we are (eventually) moving to. Doug and I were very excited as this was the time that we were to choose the options for the house. We smugly thought that we were well prepared with our choices but as we entered our third hour of debate over bathroom taps (faucets) with the sound of 'Ka-Ching' resonating in our ears, we decided to take a rain-check and will continue and hopefully finish our choices next Friday.
We are still waiting for the local county to approve the building permit before construction can begin but we were really pleased to see that a digger has arrived on our lot and the ground has been leveled. We're hoping that this is a positive sign that things will start soon.....
So why am I writing this blog........?
This blog is a way for me to record and reflect upon my day to day life and all the changes that have happened to me over the past 2 years. In a nut-shell I moved from the rich, bustling streets of London to the sleepy suburbs of Washington DC all in the name of love. My biggest reward in this adventure has been the love of my wonderful husband and the birth of our beautiful daughter. However this transition is not and has not been an easy one; it's been filled with tremendous highs and devastating lows- all part of life's rich tapestry and part of my story that I want to share as a mother, wife and of course as an English girl settling into life across the pond.
