The Kipphuts should be buckling their seat belts and settling in for the hop across the pond... However, London weather had another plan. About 2 hours of snow left us with mass chaos at the airports, train stations and roads. Runways are closed and the Kipphuts' flight has been cancelled... the good news is that they are rebooked to arrive on Tuesday. Finger crossed :-)

After months of promising myself that I would update the blog... as well as months of request that I get it together and start posting... I am back! I have given up on the idea that I will update the last 6 months of happenings in order. Let's face it... it simply would never happen. I will do my best to catch up with posts about Poland, Berlin, The Kipphuts' visit in September, our Halloween pub crawl (including CK's best dancer prize), our first footie match, Birthday Party Day celebration, many Sunday roasts and a few other visitors! It has been an amazing year but it isn't over yet... still to come a long weekend in Bath and the Kipphuts for Christmas.
After a very long winter and a rather dull London summer, we headed to Rosemary Beach for Labor Day. My dad and Lori drove over from Jacksonville for a night before heading north to Tennessee. Michelle, Matt and trey came down from Atlanta for the end of the week. We had a week of sunshine and amazing heat... which I am dearly missing at this moment! Chris and I were on the beach every single day and if I look closely enough I can still see faint tan lines over 4 months later!
Me, Chris, Laurie, Mike, Michelle, Trey and Matt
Our first day on the beach... HEAVEN!

I'm at the beach... Woo Hoo!!!
The trick is to jump a little but bend your knees a lot!
Chris and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary this year. We decided that our gift to one another would be attending a charity event at the House of Lords. The evening included entry into Westminster Palace via the Sovereign's Gate, cocktails and canapes on the Thames River, and a tour of the House of Lords and the House of Commons.
