Change is in the air

Hope everyone had a wonderful fall weekend! Thank you for all your sweet comments Friday - I've been off the grid, but can't wait to catch up on your blogs. :)

I'm excited. For 4 years, I've been living a nomadic life in London, Cambridge, DC (with stints in Hawaii, of course :))... All for work and love. But as of this fall, our jobs are going to let my significant other and I spend more months together in the States each year!

We still have to go between the East Coast and London sometimes, but I'm psyched to not face another London winter (3pm sunsets are un-fun!) and to be less footloose.

The first side effect? We took a trip out on the lovely East Coast to celebrate and soak in fall color. I could get used to this. :)
~ Wishing you a lovely fall week ahead! ~

That's just great news - congratulations! Thank you for posting these gorgeous photos. We've finally got chilly mornings here in Phoenix and I'm feeling all full of fall but we don't have color like this.

Wonderful! Although I admire you for living in London, cold winters can be horrid. I am excited for you and your loved one and I love these photos.

Vinda Sonata said...

beautiful pictures as always, jude.

Bombay Beauty said...

Great news! I know the feeling - it is better not to travel all the time, but then again having a bit of travel in the cards will be a great. And I do think that living full time in the US one misses London. Certainly not the 3 pm sunsets, perhaps the 4 am sunrise in the summer, but certainly the London grit and charm mixed with a good dose of continental Europe... xo bb

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

Awesome! The thing I hate most about winter is the days getting shorter.

Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

There are no place more beautiful than Hudson Valley in the Fall! A dream to see the leafs in all colors:)

Indie.Tea said...

How wonderful for you :) Are you going to be in Hawaii then? What a gorgeous place!

That's great news Jude! I am really very happy for you. The Hudson Valley is gorgeous at this time of year, and that first shot captures it beautifully!

What a beautiful picture! It makes me want to visit England and see their beautiful gardens so badly.

Meghan said...

great news! And fab pictures! Sadly, we have this for about 2 weeks in Calgary and then it is gone! All the trees here are bare already :*(

MarchMusings said...

Oh that's good news indeed. So good to hear.

heather yalin said...

So happy for you two! That you can be close and not have to weather 3 p.m sunsets!

I love that we'll be back in the States, but your mention of sunsets reminds me of the super short days we're going to face (by mid-december here, it's light till 11 p)... OK. I think I may have complained--err--mentioned this before!

Punctuation Mark said...

Enjoy your time together... lovely images!

Julie said...

Hi Jude! We had to replace our tickets last night, one day less than we originally wanted, but oh well!

When are you going back to the island?

molly YEH! said...

oooh gotta love the hudson valley!! changing leaves are sooo beautiful.

Lee Oliveira said...

Congrats babe.. Very beautiful and inspiring photos

angelcel said...

Wonderful news. Travelling constantly is fun, at first, but there does come a time when it's nice to put down more roots. I'm very happy for you and can't blame you at all for being happy to by-pass a dark and wet British winter! (Can I slip into your suitcase)! ;)

Claire Kiefer said...

AMAZING! Congrats! Sounds so fun to hop around from place to place. :) Now that I'm back in New Orleans, I am fantasizing about a similar life!

I cannot find where/how to follow your blog??

Lady Grey said...

Glad to hear work life is looking up for you guys : )

Oh and that first picture is breathtaking!

Lucy said...

Those colors make me swoon. You captured them beautifully.

Karen said...

I know I'm a bit late in the game, but congratulations! Enjoy the beautiful fall colors.
