Maya and I are heading off tonight with my parents to jolly old England. I haven’t been back since Dan and I moved home from London in 2011, and there is one special grandmother that is pretty darn excited to meet Maya! It’s going to be so nice to introduce her to a bunch of different family members and family friends over there. We will be over for about two weeks and staying mostly in the south west – where my grandmother lives.

Dan is going to be holding down the fort over here. He has taken a fair bit of time already for holidays (Florida, Puerto Rico, etc) and so we want to save the rest of his available holiday time for this summer. We will miss him for sure!

Wish me luck with the time change. I’m a little worried that an overnight flight + 5 hour time change + teething (3 new teeth in the past couple of weeks, and 1 still breaking through) will mean disaster. Hopefully not…!

Cheerio, daahlings!

    Good luck! We just got back from Hawaii and the time change is tough but not that bad. Bonus: you’ll have family around to help for the toughest west to east part at the beginning! Have fun!
