When I left England for America on April 22, I had no idea I would still be here in July. Much has happened that I did not feel free to share online at the time, but now that I have finally booked my return ticket, I will be back blogging regularly.
Henry David Thoreau said, ‘ We should come home from adventures, and perils, and discoveries every day with new experience and character.’
It fits perfectly with what I’ve come to think of as my ‘lost and found’ summer experience and I hope you’ll come back to hear all about it.
Even though I won’t see my ‘Dancing Ladies’ until early August, my final countdown has begun.
I’ve imagined my airport reunion with John more times this summer than I can count and while his face looks very dear each time I think of him waiting just beyond the arrival checkpoint, it’s the memory of our last embrace that I cling to in my mind and how it will feel to finally be back in his arms again.
Elizabeth, I am so very happy for you and John. Cant wait to see pics of your return.
So glad to hear that you’re able to get home, finally!
A love story. 🙂
What a joyous post, and I am cheering you on until you are back in the love of your lifes arms once again. I’ve thought of you and prayed for you and continued to check, and was so happy to receive this awesome news! I am just a romantic at heart, for sure. So glad your adventure in the good Ole USA is coming to a close and you’ll soon be back where you belong.
So happy for you that you can see the end of this particular tunnel. 🙂
Elizabeth, I can’t wait to hear about your journey and your reunion. I love the picture of the dancing ladies.
I will be so glad to hear from you again and see your wonderful English life photography, but it so cheers me to know how filled with love and joy you and John will be in reuniting. Here’s to home, love, comfort, journeys, peace and dancing ladies.
The ‘Dancing Ladies’ are always a welcome landmark on the way home to Cornwall … I usually let out a rebel yell when I cross the Tamar heading West. It’s nice to know another Kernowphile is returning from exile.
Have a safe trip, Elizabeth. x
Hurray Elizabeth! I am so glad for you! It will be exciting all over again.
happy travels home and a joyous reunion. wished we had been able get together while you were so near, but glad you are able to get back were you long to be – with John.
I have thought of you so often these last few weeks, and I’ve missed you and been so worried about you! So glad to hear that your countdown has begun, and that soon you will be back where you want to be. I’m looking forward to more tales of your wonderful Journey.
Best wishes from one of your (many) fans!
great news –safe trip and may your reunion with John be sweet!
Yay! Have a safe trip home Elizabeth, how lovely to be back home with John again after such a long absence.
So happy for you!
So happy to hear this. xox wishing you more miracles and godspeed!
Very happy that you are going home in August! I have missed your writings. I’m sure the “Dancing Ladies” will do a little jig just for you when you pass them.
Oh GOOD!!! That’s wonderful 🙂 I can’t wait to hear about everything that went on, and how things are back in Cornwall!
Can’t wait to hear “the rest of the story”.
Hurry back – Cornwall in Summer is so lovely.

Happy home coming, I bet that John and the family are counting down the minutes.
Look forward to the light and enjoy every moment.
Glad that you finally have a date – it’s not as soon as any of us would like for it to be for you, but it’s there and concrete, and will arrive before you know it!
That’s such good news, Elizabeth. And once you get home burn your passport so you never have to leave again!
Stay cool…and remember to buy some grits. 🙂
Yay! I’ve been wondering about you and am sooooo intrigued (well, who wouldn’t be, really!??) to hear more of why/how and all the rest of your extended separation from your beloved hubby. Good on you both, and cheers for early August.
