Our household goods arrived yesterday ... reminding me of all the stuff we collected around the world! I am thankful for the opportunities to travel to Europe, Asia, and even Africa. Before I was married, I often thought of what it would be like to take a chance and live in London. My mother hails from England ... so it may be in my blood. Alas, I took another path to become a military spouse, scout mom, and Aloha Ambassador.
Speaking of Americans in London, Michele Gorman (an American in London) is relaunching her book, BELLA SUMMER TAKES A CHANCE, about an American in London (link):
When is enough not enough?
Bella's career and relationship are her life's foundationwear: not glamorous and perhaps a bit binding, but supportive enough... until she realizes that they are not enough. Her life is sagging badly. She's never been in love with her boyfriend, despite a decade together. And somehow she stopped being a musician-with-a-day-job and became a consultant-who-was-musical. So she takes a terrifying leap of faith, leaving her relationship and resolving to follow her musical dreams no matter what.
But the life you walk away from doesn't always let you walk away.
With a wonderfully warm and witty cast of friends, all navigating between their ideals and the realities they face, together they'll find out what love and compromise really mean in this empowering tale about grasping life with both hands.
