My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Easter Sunday and Where To Get Dinner

Yesterday was Easter. We sort of remembered but then forgot.
When we remembered was the time we should have gotten some food in .. instead, at 10 pm my husband was going through the phone book calling all restaurants in the area and none were open.
NONE !
Except one.
McDonalds.

We don't eat meat and I don't think I have been in a McDonalds for at least 20 years.. But the fact was , we were 'tarving ( as a certain little boy I know used to say) and it was 10 pm and this McDonalds is about a block away.
My sweet husband and I had our Easter dinner in a booth in an empty McDonalds in Great Barrington , Massachusetts.
I had french fries too ... just to be sure my cholesterol and salt intake were at the maximum levels.
Good thing these are not a problem for me but that is the first thought I had .. this food will not do me any favors.

After all the months of packing and planning and worrying and packing, I am sleeping like a bebe and feel relaxed and happy.
Maybe it is because I have always enjoyed staying in hotels .. a long time ago, in a faraway land, I worked with someone who traveled. . thus I got to travel a bit too. Not that far but it did seal my preferences for good hotels and better seating in airplanes.

We drove to Chatham, NY today.
We had a little lunch in an adorable cafe and met  a realtor who was very nice and helpful.

As we drove home ...... it began to snow .
Only flurries but they were the first snow flakes we have seen in quite a long time.

Tomorrow Connecticut.

Glad to hear you are relaxed and happy. Sometimes "going home" is the best remedy, even when home is not like it used to be. Enjoy your new adventure.
