The house is coming along really well. We visited yesterday and were pleased to see that most of the brick work has been completed. The siding is now on the house and most of the shingles.
Doug and I are extremely happy with the way the house looks. No one house looks the same in the neighbourhood and before building began we were given a list of the brick, siding, shingle and tile colours for the house. It was difficult to imagine what all the colours and textures would look like to together but we both agree that we have quite a pretty house in the making.
We were also surprised to see that our neighbours' house is taking shape. Given the continued progress we're still optimistic that we may be able settle towards the end of August.....
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.
