You may have wondered where we've been. The photo at left of Tower Bridge should clue you in.
Yes, we went to England for Christmas!!!
For a pair of old house enthusiasts and admirers of great architecture and history, visiting London was pure heaven. We lapped it up like honey. I'll be sure and post photos on Flickr and a link when I get them organized.
The main reason for the trip was to visit my 93 year old Grandmother, who lives in Reading.
This was truly a very special Christmas for my family. My Mom, sister Kimberley and her husband Sean as well as my nephew Ciaran all made the trip.
We stayed in Reading thru Boxing Day (day after x-mas) and then Steve and I headed to London.
This is the first trip I've taken where I did not miss our dogs. I am evidently pretty codependant on my dogs. They seem to encourage this though, don't you think?

If you read the blog the past year, I'm sure you can imagine how overdue we were for a vacation. I am happy to say that I did not think about my job or tenants the entire trip. And I did not log onto a computer for 10 whole days.
I am hoping to make the warm and fuzzy feeling from all the great experiences with family and the amazing history and culture of London last until Spring!
Lesson Learned: Vacations are an absolute good.
New Year's Resolution: We will have more of them.
Looking forward to a great 2008 in houseblogging and otherwise! Happy New Year to all!
