And suddenly, we're already on our way back to the U.K.
Where did December go? (But for real – where did it go?)
I'll be in London for the next two weeks seeing friends and family for the holiday, and I'm definitely looking forward to it. It's been almost six months since we moved back to the States but it feels like an entire lifetime ago.

would love to discuss this in greater depth, but in the beginning of gloria steinem's "my life on the road" (which i'm currently reading) she makes a fascinating comparison to our love for media of all kinds to our natural longing to escape. as in, maybe as humans we're not supposed to "settle down" at all and we're fighting some deep rooted natural inclination when we do, which is why we so often turn to media to escape, even on a micro level. mind blown, right? but let's come back to this later – there's much more to be said.
more on name changing.
