5 year Anniversary Living in the UK

Steve’s 35 Year Work Anniversary at the Same Company

It is hard to believe that it was 5 years ago today that Steve & I boarded an American Airlines plane in Los Angeles, California, for London, England. Steve’s work brought us here for what was meant to be two years. Here we are five years later still living in Lincoln, England and still loving it. Coincidentally (or was it a gift from the company) that day was Steve’s 30 year anniversary at work.

I wanted to share this momentous occasion with all of you since you have been following my stories journaling our life in England since I started my blog over two years ago. I will not go into the many details of the past five years. What I will do is give you a brief overview. We have created an incredible life here in England – we really feel at home here. We touch on the fact that we have travelled Europe – England, France, Italy, Prague, Poland, Germany, Denmark, Belarus, Cyprus and Israel.

Our sons Jonathan and Joshua, and Elizabeth, our daughter-in-law have visited us and we all went to Stonehenge, Lincoln, London and Paris together. Also a few good friends from home (USA) have come to visit us.  We are close with my relatives in England and visit them regularly.

I continue to volunteer with over five different organisations, from the Cathedral to the Jewish Community to the Interfaith Group as well as being the Chairman of Council of Christians and Jews Lincoln, and helped with fundraisers sponsored by the Mayor and Sheriff of Lincoln. Steve and I have personally accomplished so much in our lives in the past five years.

We have met amazing people and made “Friends for Life” that have and continue to enhance our lives. We experience “Max’s Magical Moments” regularly and for all of that, we feel truly “Blessed.” We are so thankful for this amazing opportunity. Here’s to many more “Magical Moments” for us all.
