Yes, it worked out well OMG, HUGE HUGE change. Its amazing how every day daily life is SO different you just don't realise it. You'll laugh but even cooking was different - you use much more sodium in things like stock cubes (boullion) so I had to adapt my recipes the altitude is different so cooking times are way off what I'm used to. Preparing for storms (our prep in the UK is zero ... a couple of claps of thunder and we're done, its national news if a tree gets struck by lightening because that never happens) All this silly little stuff that you take for granted ..... It was tough for me at first, I won't lie but now I wouldn't be anywhere else

Carrot & Parsnip is so yummy. Boil them up til soft, then mash them together with butter and a little black pepper.

Think of me while I am defending myself and pulling children off of bookshelves. Oh the joys of teaching! I feel bad because the teacher is great, but man, I don't want her job!
Yikes!!! Good luck!!

It was complicated (really hard to move to this country from the UK) fast forward a bit and my Dad calls and says "Guess what, I've been offered a transfer to Atlanta" .... weird, it had never come up before, he didn't even know they had an office in Atlanta. So whilst me & DH are trying to find a way in through paperwork, my parents upped and left ... got here before us We visited a few times and loved it here - the laid back pace, the 'quirky' Southern way and the fact it is covered in trees, reminds me of England in a way. Everyone was so welcoming and we just felt right at home.
That is too funny that your parents made it here before you. Glad that you didnt have to be so far away from them in order to follow your own dreams.



Terri--Awesome crafting!!!! The decorations are so cute!! I love the holiday passport. Trying to decide how embarrased DH would be if I got one filled out.
