Hello my friends. I hope you are all doing well! At the end of September Steven, Evy, and I traveled to London for vacation. As some of you know, I have a bit of an obsession with all things English - so I felt completely in my element whilst holidaying there ;o) I even got to meet the beautiful, sweet, and funny Sophie from Sophie Honeysuckle. Meeting Sophie really was a dream come true for me - we had such a great time. My only complaint is that I wish we could have gotten to spend more time together. We had an excellent time at Cath Kidston, Cabbages & Roses, having coffee, doing some clothes shopping, and above all - getting a chance to talk face to face. What an excellent way to spend a day in London. Below is a picture of Steve, Evy, and me at Stonehenge.
Evy and I standing in front of the Sherlock Holmes Museum at 221B Baker Street (and me with the ubiquitous cup of coffee - I realized later that I am holding coffee in about 75% of the pictures - yah, drank a lot of coffee over there)
Here we are in Bath - it was so beautiful there - and so very commercial. It was a strange combination of the very old and well preserved buildings, churches, and cobblestone streets, paired with oddities like the Disney store, and Starbucks. True story.
Little Evy turned 5 while we were in London. We had so much fun that day. We went to Hamley's Toy Store where she picked out the Paddington Bear and pink kitty with her birthday money. We had brought the Emily American Girl doll with us to give to her (the Emily character is from England and went to stay with Molly in America during WWII). We thought it would be fun to give her a doll who was from England. She was ecstatic and likes to tell people that Emily is from England. By the way, we have and American Girl store that is opening right by us at the Mall of America on Friday so we are pretty excited.
I will post more pictures of England - I just realized my picture of Sophie is on our other computer so I need to pull it off of there (as well as my pictures in Cath Kidston). I'll also take a picture of the fun spotted green bags that both Sophie and I got at CK.
My last picture is one of me in the crown that lovely Rosemary made for me a while back. I meant to get updates to you sooner. I've also got loads of house pictures to show you - I've gotten so backed up and now theres so much to share!! : )
Talk to you shortly my friends.
