Remember all that talk about going to Spain for the fall?
Change of plans.
Because a week ago, Bart got a call informing him that there was a spot at the London Business School for him.
When Bart first applied to study abroad this fall, London Business School was one of his top choices, but since it didn't look like there were any spots there, we decided on Spain instead.
But then a spot did open, and suddenly we were facing a really tough choice between London and Barcelona. We've spent the last week going back and forth, weighing two really great choices.
In the end, London Business School won out, in part because it was a school that Bart's been interested in for years, and partly because Bart and I both love London so much. Also, the fact that you don't need a visa for the UK if you're there for less than six months fills me with joy, but that's probably not the most important reason.
Both of us studied abroad there (you can see some hilariously unflattering pictures of Merrick and me in 2007) and both of us absolutely love that city.
The thought of being there together, with our little girls, makes me just giddy with excitement.
(I'm ignoring the fact that London will be WAY colder in the fall and early winter than Barcelona would have been. The fact that it's currently 109 degrees in Las Vegas makes the idea of cold a little easier to stand).
