Just popping in to say we made it to London! Thank goodness. The three of us maybe got three hours of sleep total on the flight over here. It was an overnight flight, so we landed at 6:30 am London time. Our bodies thought it was 1:30 am. Josephine was loopy as ever. We were all just so out of it. We did sit next to a sweet British lady on the plane.... who was also named Josephine! She was a hoot. She fawned all over Josephine, calling her a little poppet. I chatted with her for a while and learned that she was flying back to the UK from her step-grandson's Bar Mitzvah. She told me all about the Rabbi, he was "delicious" she said, and looked just like Obama. Ha! I decided I want to be her when I grow-up. We eventually checked in to our temporary apartment. Our actual place won't be ready for us for another week. A bit of a bummer. We all took a long nap, then ventured out to explore a bit. I can't remember the last time Josephine fell asleep in the sling. She was exhausted. Poor thing.

So, my initial thought on London life? LOVE it! Yes, it's super busy and loud, a far cry from what we are used to back in the burbs. And, everyone smokes. I do mean everyone. Quite literally I feel like I am always trying to dodge cigarette smoke as I walk around the city. But it's such a beautiful place. The architecture, the parks. Oh, the parks! We already found one that we frequent at least twice a day. Josephine, true to form, has already made lots of little park friends. She is such a friendly little thing. Saying "hi" to everyone! I can't tell you how at peace it makes Pete and I feel to see her thriving over here. A big sigh of relief knowing this decision to move was a good one for all of us. Now we are just working on getting over jet lag, getting some phones (I am dying without instagram... so pathetic, I know!), learning our way around, and trying to remember to always look right then left before crossing the street. Yikes!
