I have many posts that I need to get crackin' on. Things have been busy around here. We've had visitors and Ruby and I took a trip to the US while the boys stayed here to work and go to school. I will get caught up one day but for now I thought I'd share my latest fascination - royal wedding stuff. It's everywhere and most of it is downright tacky but I have seen a few things that would be worthy of having. I have a slight obsession with tea towels and have been collecting them for many years. Whenever we travel I always try to find a cute one to add to the collection. It's always fun to dry dishes while reminiscing about our trip to New Zealand, Bali, or someplace else equally as fabulous. While Brian might argue that we do not need anymore dish towels (because isn't one drawerful enough? NO I say!) I cannot help myself. They are practical and a necessity. So why not I say? These are some of my favorites ... which one is yours?

February was an exciting month for us. Besides visiting Buckingham*Palace and attending the Brits we also celebrated living in London FIVE years. Can you believe it? I honestly cannot. It's difficult to really grasp. Kaneu was 18 months old when we moved here. A baby! As I was thinking how in the world it has been five years that we've been here I started digging into the photo database and took a very fond walk down memory lane. Our first year hear was INSANE!! We had at least one visitor a month during our first year and we travelled to at least 9 new cities and countries in addition to visiting the US three times. I'm thinking I may have overlooked a few, but seriously, how did we do that? And how is Brian still employed?! Wow, what a year.
Before we left the States we stayed our final weekend with our BFFs and they gave us a little present (see above). It's a jar full of glass pebbles and on the back of each pebble they wrote what they would miss about is. Is that not the sweetest? Some of them are sentimental and others are just downright hilarious. Here are many photos - of our final days before trekking across the Atlantic as well as our first year in London. Enjoy!
2006 was a very busy year!
