Friday Phone Dump

1) After the Good Friday service, a bunch of people from church went out to the pub.  I love pubs because they are cozy and English and full of ginger beer and fries :)

2) Just a lovely moment of journaling with my glass of wine.  Thanks to my best, Chelsea, for gifting me my pretty journal!

3-8) Ro’s sweet family was kind enough to let us join them for their Easter Sunday festivities.  We had a great time eating amazing food (thank you, Sally!), being goofy, hunting for eggs (thank you, Ian!), walking around the neighborhood, and making flower crowns out of rosemary (the official herb of Ro’s and my friendship–get it? Ro’s+Mary?!)

9-10) We’ve been having more sunny days here since we did back in February and March, and even though they can still be chilly, it’s nice to see the sun :)

11-17) We did have a sunny day that was warmer than usual earlier this week, so we went for a walk through this gorgeous wood before soaking up some more sun in the backyard.  Basically it was a great day!

18-20) Rainy days are great too, especially when you get to enjoy espresso and Italian cookies (almond with cherry filling!) outside.  Also, Bedford is pretty!

21-36) We finally made it to Cambridge!  I had never been before, so we took a day trip this week.  It’s such a charming town full of old buildings and flowers and intelligence :)  We found this really delicious cafe called The Old Bicycle Shop, which was both adorable and tasty.  We also grabbed a coffee from Hot Numbers and visited the gorgeous Fitzwilliam Museum.  It was a lovely day trip!

This weekend we are relaxing and checking some items off our to-do list.  I hope your weekend is restful!

love,

M

San Diego 2016 Part One

At least once every year, I start to dream of beaches and palm trees and fish tacos and surfer punk rock, and I call it California Dreaming.  It usually starts around March or April, thus I have saved this post for now!

You may remember that we took a trip to beautiful San Diego back in September!  It was a much-needed trip for all of us, and I’m excited to finally share more photos with you today :) Sorry I’m not sorry to add to your California Dreaming

I’m so thrilled to be in England at the moment, but I could definitely go for a coffee on the beach right about now :)

Happy Wednesday, friend!

Friday Phone Dump

God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits,
to the woman who diligently seeks.
It’s a good thing to quietly hope,
quietly hope for help from God.

[…]

When life is heavy and hard to take, go off by yourself. Enter the silence.

Bow in prayer. Don’t ask questions:
Wait for hope to appear.
Lamentations 3: 25-30 msg

1) Last week, Colin and I went to the Tennis Club to work–and it was just as charming as ever!  I love the colors and textures and light in there.  And the tea…and the snacks…

2) Our sweet friends, Ben and Zoe, have been vacationing these past couple weeks, and they let us stay in their gorgeous home while they were gone!  It really is a lovely (and stylish!) place–but they also have cats.  So we ended up only staying there a week before moving into a new place haha, in case you hadn’t noticed my swollen face and rashes, I’m very allergic to cats!

3) Pretty blossoms :)

4-8) This weekend we had two unbelievably sunny and warm days, so we spent both days outside enjoying it!  On Saturday, Colin and I read in the park all day (and I made a daisy chain…because obviously).  And on Sunday we had a picnic with Tom, Ro, and Josh!  It was perfect.

9) Our current home–I don’t think gardens get much sweeter than this!

10-16) Snapshots from our walk we took yesterday–England is just so so pretty!

This weekend we’re cooking New Mexican food (I found some chiles in a London Whole Foods!) and enjoying Good Friday and Easter celebrations with Ro’s family.  I hope your Easter weekend is lovely!

love,

M

Sunny Days in London

Today I’m bringing you photos from two separate sunny days we got to enjoy wandering around streets and gardens in London.  The first is from a few weeks ago, and the second is from my birthday last week.  It’s crazy to see how much changed even in that small amount of time!  One thing’s for sure, I’m loving spending Spring in this land of gorgeous flowers and lush green grass.

Friday Phone Dump

“I believe in thinking about the good times

All those little moments weren’t just a pass by

I believe we’re better when we’re together.  

I believe a hard rain can ease the heartache

Clean out all the gutters, wash it all away

I believe we’re better when we’re together

I believe in courage, taking chances

Think of all the mistakes turned to inventions

I believe we’re better when we’re together

I believe we’re all here for somethin’ special 

Doesn’t even matter, all your credentials

I believe we’re better when we’re together”

I Believe // Aaron Espe

1-2) On our last day in Leeds, we spent some more time exploring downtown.  It’s a lovely city, and I think it’s safe to say our favorite spot was Laynes Espresso :) Check out that peanut butter brownie!

3) Back in Bedford–this evening reminded me of Spring in Oklahoma.  It was a sunset after a rainy day that was colorful and smelled so fresh!

4) I got myself a little birthday gift from épanoui this week–some pretty earrings!  I love this little package Hannah put them in, you all should go check out her shop either in person or online–her stuff is gorgeous!

5-7) The flowers in England are un. real.  They are abundant and colorful and so stunning!  It makes walking all around town extra fun.

8) Such pretty skies :) I love how deep and saturated they get in Oklahoma, but the subtle colors here are equally enchanting.

9)  The willow trees are green!

10) Colin and I went to London for my birthday, yesterday, so I spent a few minutes browsing my travel books to see if there was anywhere we needed to stop while we were there.

11) Our sweet friends, the Skidmores :) We got to FaceTime with them this week and Steph took a screenshot of us, so here it is haha–love them!

12-15) London!  Our first stop was the Borough Market for our favorite pasta (Colin gets truffle tortellini with mushroom sauce, I get potato gnocchi with basil pesto and red pepper flakes), our favorite coffee, and some more of the fig + apple mustard we got the last time we were there.  We had the most unbelievably sunny weather while we were there, so we stayed out in it all day!

16-26) Wandering around sunny London, I mean seriously guys.  Those flowers.  I just can’t.  We keep going to London thinking we’ll visit more indoor sights, but then the weather turns out to be so nice that we end up just walking all around–no regrets

IMG_3799

27) Really cute walk signs!

IMG_3797

28) We stopped by Trafalgar Square and there was a protest against Uber going on–glad we weren’t tryna’ drive anywhere!

29-34) More wandering.  We lounged in the grass in Hyde Park for probably and hour and a half or so and it was so great–we even got small sunburns on our faces! Haha

35-39) We ended the day by strolling through Notting Hill and eating at what I’ve heard is the best Mexican restaurant in London (and so far I would absolutely agree!!!) for my birthday dinner.  I had a pineapple + coconut agua fresca, chips + guacamole, barbacoa tacos, and fish tacos.  I’m drooling just thinking about them!

This weekend we are hoping to take advantage of even more sunny + warm weather by either lounging in the park or going for a long walk.  May your weekend be full of lovely weather, fresh ideas, and at least a few lazy moments

love,

M
