**Before I say anything else this morning, I have to say a big, heartfelt "thank you" to all the brave men & women who have served (& continue to serve) us in the US Armed Forces. We will always remember. **
I know I've said it before, but it bears repeating: The month of May is insane for my family.
... Seriously, crazytown.
Crazy-good, to be sure, with lots of celebrations: birthdays, mother's day, graduations, and family get-togethers. ...But still, June 1 always brings a little sigh of relief. It's wonderful to live the crazy good stuff, but also good to take a deep breath and reflect, to move at a (slower) more normal pace once again.
One would think, given the typical & predicted craziness of the month, that Jon & I might go out of our way to avoid (or at least, not seek out) opportunities of be busier. ...But sometimes an opportunity comes along that is SO good, that you go out of your way to do it even if it is during the busiest month of the year.
This year, Jon & I got one of those opportunities. My cousin Heidi (of Heidi's Big Adventure), graciously invited us to come visit her in England. It was the chance of a lifetime.
So Jon & I got our passports, packed our bags, and headed "over the pond" for a week in the UK, from May 19 - May 26.
It was amazing. Everything I could have dreamed and so much more.
... Stay tuned this week as I recap our stories.
