LONDON PART 1 (OF THREE HUNDRED)

so. london. like what the heck we had the most amazing five days ever. me, petie and the brother, damien went down to london to see the sights and oooh boy did we have a blast. it was the first time for petie and damien so I (as payton so lovingly put it on her london blog post) "smugly enjoyed their reactions to all of London's glory". this time round, however, we practically walked everywhere. that was probably one of the best ideas ever. sure, we were dead at the end of every day (thank you coffee I love you forever), but we got to see so much of london. stuff that you'd never see if you took the tube everywhere! on the first two days we covered the thames, baker street (speedys cafe too whaaaaat), borough market, london bridge, tower bridge, tower of london, st. pauls, st. barts hospital (ok so maybe we love sherlock a lot.)...and probably loads more that I can't recall. oh. that's right. and WE WENT TO SEE A LIVE INTERVIEW OF RICHARD ARMITAGE (guys guys guys it was the bestest ever like whattheevenheck we're gonna get maaaaarrieeed like ahhhhh). one of the things that I really wanted to capture this time round was all of the details of london. I mean, I wanted to get the big iconic sights of the place of course, but I also wanted to get the smaller details and the things that really make london so memorable. therefore, you now have pictures of waffles and plants and signs and coffees that you never knew you wanted. you're welcome.

love you all.

  2. okay, i can officially dub this my favorite post of yours, evah. I LITERALLY SQUEALED OUT LOUD WHEN I SAW THE PHOTO OF YOU AND RICHIE. i am so beyond jealous, like you have no clue.
    also, petie is absolutely adorable, and the two of you together are infinitely cute. and you captured the little details so perfectly, i'm still obsessing over that coffee. PERF.
