London, Baby!

So, my sister Mary has decided to move to London. I'm thrilled! But I have to admit I did tear up just a little when she confirmed her decision.

She gets to work in London just a couple blocks away from Buckingham Palace. How freakin' cool is that?! She moves over in January and her family will follow at the end of the school year. Unfortunately, I won't be able to visit for a while since I'm taking 6 weeks of maternity leave. That only leaves a little room for sick days - and definitely not enough time to fly to London to see this:

Congratulations, Mary! Not only did you finish a half marathon, but you are following your dreams. You continue to amaze me.
I had to include this picture too, because I almost got myself and my infant (Luke) run over when I tried to get across the roundabout that surrouds this memorial in front of Buckingham Palace. My life flashed before my eyes as I dodged traffic with my stroller and watched as my in-laws and husband casually strolled across the street without me:

I love your enthusiasm for my decision! We are really excited and cannot wait for you to come and visit with my little niece and nephews! With any luck I will get to meet baby before I leave. He has to know his Aunt Mary before she jets off to London.

Here is my new blog for McIntyres in London: http://mcintyresinlondon.blogspot.com/

Theresa, you make me tear up, too! Mary, we are going to miss you more than you'll know. It is just the little incidental stuff that we talk about and knowing you are there for Mom. I'm not sure when I'd ever get to London, but now I have an excuse to go!! Maybe we sisters should go together!!
I'm so happy for Mary and her accomplishments!

Both of you have to get Skype and a computer camera - then we can see each other and talk for free - no matter where we are.
