Back in London

Monday, December 21, 2015

We've been in London nearly a week now and guys, it feels so. good. The weather's been cool and damp, but not miserable. We've been spending days wandering central London and nights curled up re-watching the original Star Wars trilogy (we're seeing the new one this week!) My sister came in from Spain this past weekend, and between birthday and family dinners, Christmas shopping and a few touristy things squeezed in we've been keeping busy. I'll try to post more photos soon, but if I disappear again for a bit, a very happy, merry Christmas to everyone out there- Christ is (almost) born!

A few interesting links around the web:

To get you in the Christmas Spirit

More good news- and proof that we're all just humans

If you're a big Star Wars nerd, you'll find this extra funny

The Daily Mail's list of things that cause cancer- don't believe everything you read, y'all.

2015: a cuteness review of the year

Husband and I got a Rosemary Christmas Tree this year and it smells amazing.

If I was a D.I.Y. kind of gal, I'd be making these this week- oh well...

We used this blog post to plan out a few fun outings in London before Christmas- enjoy

(p.s.- another helpful London guide for those who are vegan, or fasting like us.)

All the best,


A long December

It's Friday! Hurray!

....and I'm working tomorrow. Womp womp.

Honestly I will be a much happier, more pleasant human being 1 week from today, so I'm refraining from writing longer posts till that time, because honestly, no one needs extra negativity floating around this here interwebs. We get plenty of that from domestic and international news sites, amiright?

I will however, divulge in some moody winter music. It's ever so slightly inspired by this post from A Cup of Jo about 26 things to do for yourself once a year (one of them is listening to old songs from another part of your life.) Honestly, I don't think once, or even 2 or 3 times a year, would be enough for me. I love the nostalgic feeling I get when I listen to certain albums: No Doubt's Return of Saturn brings me back to 90s road trips in our giant leperchaun-green van in the 90s (yep, had one of those. We were that family.); Fleetwood Mac's self titled album when I fell hard for this handsome idiot once in high school; even Celine Dion's Greatest Hits and A New Day Has Come playing on repeat on my karaoke machine in my room after Christmas (yea, I went there. No shame. also the year I got wayyyy into Lord of the Rings, so Celine and The Fellowship will forever be weirdly and closely connected for me.) So yea, if it wasn't clear before, I love a good throwback. So here you go.
