Fun New Development

Steve is coming over on the 22nd of the month and we're going to spend a day in Paris and catch at least one show in the West End.  The reason he's coming is because he's been invited to a wedding by a London colleague -- and now I get to go, too!!  I don't really have any details, but Steve said it's going to be in a manor or castle.  So, I did a little research and found this place in Bexleyheath -- maybe this will be it!

Now, this is going to be pretty exciting to see how a wedding is done in another country and, maybe, in a big estate.  Only had to throw in a little extra clothing.

Less than 2 weeks to go!

On Stacy's advice, I decided to set up a travel blog so I can post information and photos during my trip to England.  I've been working feverishly the past few weeks to get everything planned, and I'm almost completely packed and ready to go.  It is currently 3:40 a.m. on Friday morning, August 27 and I'm unable to sleep -- a fairly common occurrence lately.  I'm hoping that I adjust to London time quickly without much jet lag, and I know that will be easier if I can sleep on the plane.  If I keep staying awake all night like tonight, sleeping on the plane shouldn't be too difficult!

England is 6 hours ahead of Wisconsin, so it might appear that I'm posting in the middle of the night but I'm guessing and hoping that my days will be so packed that I'll drop off exhausted every night.
