In the Past Month

Sam and I spent a week in Mexico with our friends and family...

Got married...

Spent a week in Texas where we also  had a reception...

Packed as much as we could into our allotted luggage and moved to England...

Into this cute little yellow cottage...

Had another reception at the village hall in Luxborough where Sam's parents live...

And honeymooned in the Maldives where we stayed in a bungalow over the water.

It has been the most hectic and enjoyable month of my life!  I sometimes forget where I am in the world and the calendar, it looks like it's September now which is CRAZY.  We have been busy setting up our home and getting things in order.  I have had to register at the doctor, apply for a National Insurance Number, learn to drive on the wrong side of the road, cook using the metric system, and look for a job.  It's been great!  Sam is back at work now, so I have been looking for jobs and have some very good possibilities right now, just waiting to see how they play out.  I have gone for long walks almost every day, and the incredible beauty of my surroundings has only intensified with each breathtaking view I discover.  We live in one of the most beautiful places I have ever been too--how lucky!  And to top it all off, being married has been even better than I expected, we are having so much fun:)
