I recently got back from a week-long trip to London (with an excursion to Chorley and the Lake District to visit my grandparents). I was visiting my friend Elizabeth, who is the absolute best, and it was basically the loveliest trip ever. We walked around and saw lots of London and spent some good time in museum shops (which are my favorite). We also attended a lomography workshop at the National Portrait Gallery and saw the musical "Once" which was just breathtakingly beautiful. I might have cried a little. Also, I bought a Cambridge satchel in Navy blue and adore it. Thank you, E. for showing me around London and adventuring in the Lake District with me. And speaking of the Lake District, I told Christian that we should probably just plan on retiring to the English countryside. Anyone is welcome to join us.
