Our Road to Boroughbridge

October 10, 2011 was a Monday, too.  And it was on that Monday five years ago today that I boarded an airplane with my husband for my first overseas flight to, you guessed it, England.  It was the result of a sudden lightning bolt decision in February 2010 that hey, we were grown-ups and could go places.  And the end result of that lightning bolt moment is that five years later I am recording our lives on the same little blog I kept then from our home in North Yorkshire, England.

I had nothing more in my head but a really fun "trip of a lifetime" with my husband.  Yet, "In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps."  

And as Bilbo warned Frodo, "It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door...You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no telling where you might be swept off to."
