Dear Family and Friends!

We hope you had a wonderful Chanukkah &/or Christmas, and that you will have a very Happy New Year!

We had a nice and quiet Christmas here in England. The weather in England has been unseasonably mild, but we are not complaining! Timothy has gotten to work from home this Christmas/New Year’s week, so we are just relaxing and getting odds/ends done for when little Evie comes!

2015 was another exciting year for us. We moved from Israel to England. Timothy has been having an awesome time at his new job. He is working with such awesome people, and on so many cool projects! When Timothy is not working (and sometimes when he is), we traveled!! Not surprising right?!?! This year we went to Israel (for a wedding) & Jordan in May, France (ICML Conference) in June, California (Google HQ) in August, Southern England (Tim’s B-Day) in September, and Northern England (Our Babymoon) in October! Not to mention the entire time we were traveling, little Evie was with us!  (We found out shortly after our trip to Israel/Jordan.)

2016 is going to be such an exciting year. We have our hospital bags packed and ready for when Ms. Evelyn decides to join us. But other than that, we are not sure what to expect! (The story of our lives!)

So far on our 2016 agenda, Timothy will have a few weeks of Paternity leave. We are looking forward to quality time as a new family. Timothy hopes to attend a couple of conferences that happen to be in some pretty cool places. Our parents are planning to visit us in England, and we are planning a trip to the States as well. But life/work always throws a few curve balls our way, so who knows where and what 2016 has in store for us.

We really hope you had a wonderful 2015 and an even better 2016!


Merry ChristmasDear Family and Friends,

Over the past year, Timothy and I have experienced several ups and downs. Living in Israel has been wonderful at times, but also difficult especially when my mother was sick, and when she passed away. Or now with Timothy’s mom going through treatment again. However, we are thankful for being able to spend so much time with family, despite the distance.  Tim got to spend time with his family at Easter and at the end of May, while I got to spend 7 weeks with my mom and dad, then another 8 weeks with my dad. Plus my dad visited us in Israel! (See pictures in post below).

We truly appreciate all of the love and support you have given to us, and both of our families during the hard times, but also during the good. We are especially excited about moving to London and Tim’s job! We are ready for a new beginning, and some new adventures.

We hope and pray that your 2015 will be as exciting as ours, filled with lots of love, health, and family.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Years!

Love- Laura and Timothy
