His and Hers...

We really needed cell phones, so I decided to let Ty go up to the phone store without me so I could make dinner. He came home with these 2 phones. Guess which phone is for me. Is it the sleek gold-plated one with the built in camera and mp3 player? Or is it the heavy gray brick that you have to scroll over about 10 times in order to read a few words in a text message? I was grateful when he gave me my phone, but when I saw his, I really could not stop laughing. I don't need a camera or an mp3 player anyway, but it was pretty funny. To Ty's defense, he got the gold phone for free with the plan. And my wonderful gray phone, that I lovingly refer to as 'The Brick' is perfect for me. It has already made it through being dropped twice. I guess Tyler knows all too well that getting a nice phone for me is a mistake becuase I tend to drop them every so often.


It is a beautiful day in London today. I decided to take a few pictures of the park by our flat. The fall colors are so pretty. Usually I'm happy to see Fall go becuase it means the beginning of the ski season, but since the ski season doesn't really exist here, I am sad to see the leaves falling.

I'm starting to really love it here. For a while there, I thought my body was rejecting this country, but I'm loving it more and more every day. I am so excited that the Christmas season is here! It is such a fun time to be in London. All the streets are decorated with lights and decorations, it is so much fun to walk around and see all the window displays of the big department stores. The ice skating rinks are open at the parks here and I was so excited to go for a Christmas date, but we found out that it was $24 a person, so we decided that neither of us really like ice skating that much anyway.

I love all the huge trees lining the path in the park. It feels like your walking through a forest and it's just minutes away from the city!


This is the view of the city from Parliament Hill at the Heath. The pollution was bad this day, but I took it becuase you can see Ty's building in it. I wish I knew how to insert an arrow so I could point it out.

I don't think you have any merit in calling your phone the brick. YOu saw mine, right? I just sold it on ebay and reverted to my old phone that is much older and lighter and convenient. Although it does have a camera, so I'm one up on you there. xoxo from Lou to Lon.

Fun pictures! The scenery in that park sure does look amazing! I'm excited to see it!!!!!!! I can't believe ice skating was that much. That's just crazy. Does it seem like everything over there is more expensive?

Em, It all looks so beautiful. Especially your sweet phone. My phone just took a bath the other day in the sink, the camera no longer works and the easiest way to tell that it is mine is that it has about 7 million dings and scratches from all of its near death experiences. I miss you and hope you know that ice skating is highly over-rated. Last time I went I almost sliced my bum of with the blade of my skate. Highly over rated.

Emily!!! I stumbled across your page! It sounds like things are going great out in London. Mason is in finals right now and I thought of Ty - finished! I'm jealous. :) When are you coming back to the states?
What is he doing out there? How long?
