Let's Make a List

Since we arrived in America a bit over two weeks ago, we've been traveling and going like crazy. I've been on a whirlwind tour of the South and have seen many family and friends. It's been a joy! Highlights include many family meals, hearing my young cousins read Hebrew (impressive!), and driving a car. Is there anything more liberating than driving?!?! I'm not convinced there is. 

2009 has been a crazy year. Some highlights and favorites:

1. Receiving my British Visa after drama, drama, drama. I can now live legally in Britain until 2012.

2. Family visits.

3. Living in Paris for five weeks (one block from the Seine and Notre Dame). Subsequently, dining al fresco on the Seine almost nightly the entire time we were there.

4. Traveling, traveling, and more traveling. I love it! (Frequent Flier Post to Come!)

5. Helping my parents find a home in Virginia. We love putting down roots!

6. Welcoming new international students and their spouses to Edinburgh.

7. Reading some fabulous books and participating in a few book clubs.

8. Cooking up a storm with a really good friend in Edinburgh.

9. Weekly adventures with my husband. Whether it be hiking the Fife Coastal Path or visiting the Edinburgh Music Hall, we were always on the go.

10. Really, truly appreciating our ex-pat life for what it is.

I'm really looking forward to 2010 and all the blessings, challenges, and adventures it will bring.

Happy New Years!
