Yep, even on the first day, I knew I’d want to write about it.
Just a few days later, we took our first drive, I got my camera out again, and took this picture:
And that’s when we all started falling in love. With England, with the countryside, with all of the travel potential, the history, the beauty, the architecture….
And today, I love England because it’s home. Little by little, we are being welcomed, getting settled and connected, understanding what is around us, getting more comfortable.
Can I make a confession? I have always had a long list of places in the world that I wanted to live. Believe it or not, England was never on that list. Nor was it even on my Top 50 Places to Visit list. I know, crazy. But we are happy here, and thankful. SO thankful. And we love England, and love living here. I am glad life keeps surprising me, that I am so caught off guard by thoroughly enjoying my new home. It makes me wonder about all the other things that I don’t think I’d care for– maybe those will surprise me, too!
And, thank you for discovering England with us, cheering us on and following along. That has made this year even more remarkable. Happy One Year!
