#VivaLondon — Joy

| Posted by Harlan

In less than 24 hours, we’ll be getting on a plane to begin our journey back to the States. It’s been an incredible experience, and we’re so very grateful we’ve been able to be a part of it. We’re sad to leave, and excited to be home. But mostly we’re joyful. We can’t thank you enough for reading and supporting us. We love you.

We’ve been watching a lot of Inside Out at our house lately. I love that movie. It’s equal parts visually striking and a deep, poignant look at what makes up a good amount of why we behave the way we do — our emotions. If you haven’t seen it yet, don’t worry, I won’t be giving any spoilers or reviews today. (But do yourself a favor and go watch it!)

Admittedly, it’s been a challenging journey to transition to life in the UK, and we’ve now been faced with an equally tough transition back. But I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out the beauty (and joy) of what’s happened here for us. And the fact is, we wouldn’t feel any sadness or fear about going home if we didn’t experience heights of joy while we have been here.

| Posted by Harlan

I promised I’d follow up our last post with a more uplifting one, so here it is! The last thing we’d want is to give the impression that we’re struggling or not enjoying ourselves out here in England. Nothing could be further from the truth. While there is a sense that we’re being put through a refining fire spiritually – we have nothing but joy regarding that and our overall situation here.

Anyway, I think this will be a spattering of randomness, but hopefully will get you all caught up on what’s happened thus far. Just ignore my complete inability to transition from one thought to the next…
