I've been up since 4:30am (PST) feeling jet lagged but happy.

Over the past few days Zee and I have packed up our London flat, said our ‘goodbyes' and flown halfway across the world.

I'm writing this from our new home in sunny San Francisco.

There's SO much to do but I'm excited.

Our flat (sorry, ‘apartment') is right in the heart of the city ~ the equivalent of living slap bang in the middle of Oxford Circus. There's hustle and bustle a-plenty but I love how everyone says ‘hi' in the lift (sorry, ‘elevator').

I managed to get a little lost yesterday looking for a hardware shop and ended up climbing one of SF's infamously steep hills. The view from the top, of the bay glistening in the sun, was incredible.

I think I'm going to like it here.

But in all honesty, it isn't just the jet lag that's been keeping me awake. I also have some explaining to do…

Remember that girly ski trip I went on?

Well I only went and forgot my phone (it's a long story involving a 4am cab ride) which meant that I had to use a public telephone box that smelt of wee to call Zee and my daily Facebook and Twitter fix was out of the question.

The icing on the cake was that there was no access to wifi in our chalet so my laptop sat in the corner gathering dust while we hit the slopes.

However, we had an AMAZING time and after the first few days of feeling bereft without an internet connection/phone I actually relaxed and enjoyed being ‘disconnected'.

But the day after I got back from France it was all systems go for our big move…

Blogging, emails and Bridal Musings just had to wait.

As did all the loveliness I had in store for you guys ~ the fabulous guest posts, the beautiful real weddings and the amazing wedding films.

So dear readers, I'm truly sorry for being a less than perfect blogger but I promise all that loveliness will be winging it's way to you as of Monday next week when life is a little more settled.

Bridal Musings will be back with a BANG from my new home in the US of A (but still with a British accent).

I do hope you're all happy, healthy and enjoying your wedding planning. I can't tell you how much I've missed our daily wedding related rendevous.

See you back here on Monday…hurrah!

Love Elizabeth x
