headed east

Today's a busy day: lots of final packing to do* before we take off for England this evening.  Every time we do one of these trips, it astonishes me how much we pack.  I'm sure we didn't pack this much before Alex was born.  How can she require so much luggage?  She's not even 4 feet tall yet!

My goal is to continue frequent posting while we're away, so you can see what we're up to while in Ol' Blighty -- but it might be a day or two before I get the first one up. I always get pretty vicious jetlag traveling west to east, rendering me pretty useless for about 72 hours.  But stay tuned.  I might be able to churn out something lucid.  Or at least amusingly incoherent.

Have a great weekend, all.  See you from England.

* Incidentally, the post I wrote about what to pack for a trip overseas can be found here.  Thanks for your help -- quite a few of your suggestions featured!

Update:  One more thing -- I finally have a rate sheet up here.  If you're in the Houston area and interested in any holiday portraits (or digital greeting cards), please e-mail me.  I'll respond while on holiday, and we can set something up to happen as soon as I return.
