Officially Becoming American Again

Our tickets for our move back to Minneapolis are booked. July 29th. There it is. Wow. Only a bit over a month left. I've decided to add a new section to each of my blog posts, to capture the smaller things I know I will miss from life in London, and that I would surely forget if I didn't write them down. These things are of course in addition to the obvious big stuff: certain friends, the energy of the city, European pastries (yes, this qualifies as "big stuff"), English gardens, life without a car . . . London minutiae not to be forgotten:

Hearing 3-5 different languages each day

Being called "love"

The tailor who sews in his window and gives us a nod each morning on our way to school

Quinton telling me he needs to use the "woo"
