Today was our second wedding anniversary, and sadly we spent it on different continents! We'll get to celebrate together next week, and some more on the upcoming trip to Scotland, but it's especially hard being apart today. I can't believe it's been two years already- so much has happened in our lives!
I'm having a fantastic time in NC right now, seeing friends and looking forward to Jennifer and Kevin's wedding (at the Carolina Inn!) this weekend, but I can't fully enjoy it without my hubby. It will be nice to go to a wedding at the Carolina Inn and actually get to enjoy the food that we didn't get to eat at our own wedding! Still, it won't be the same without Jon to share in the fun. He's diligently looking for jobs, and hopefully one of this week's interviews will turn into an offer! It's so nice to hear him excited about the new prospects, especially considering all of his *interesting* work experiences in the past. Please keep your fingers crossed that he finds something wonderful!
I really think it was a bit too soon after the move for me to come back to NC. Since we're not completely settled in the UK yet, it's very easy to get nostalgic about the great life we had here and everything we gave up for the move. Seeing old friends and coworkers is great, but it makes me so sad that we don't get to see them more often. And say what you will about the sweltering heat, but I do love the hot weather! I do, however, still stand by my assertion that English Diet Coke is far superior, so at least the UK's got that going for it. I've ridden by our house (got a little bit teary-eyed) and it looks like the tenants are taking good care of it for us. Mom even brought Jack down from his vacation home in Maryland to visit with me. We are really looking forward to the end of the month, when we can finally bring our little buddies over to join us.
North Carolina has really become my home over the last 9+ years, and I really hope that life brings us back here after the English adventure is over. In the meantime, we hope to have lots of visitors from the USA!
