Day 69 of 365: Meg Builds a Snowman
My Aunt Lisa found this and decided to get it after noting the print on the box it came in, which read: "Meg Builds a Snowman." She gave it to me on my last trip back to Ohio from North Carolina -- a few months before I moved to the UK. Since Matt and I don't have any Christmas decorations at the moment and we don't really have the money this year to put into decorating the flat, I decided it was time to unveil this little "Meg" from her packaging.
She is now prominently displayed in the front window. She's hardly competition for many of our neighbours' air-traffic-control-like displays, but we think she does the job.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
