“And time will show, show, show
That people gonna be OK
Storms never come to stay
How bad we need each other
How bad we need each other
And the trials of today
They are signs along the way
How bad we need each other
How bad we need each other”

1-4) Colin and I spent some time on the high street in Bedford recently–we had tea at Coffee With Art and rummaged through several thrift stores (where I found that book…OMG).  We love you, Bedford :)

5-32)  Our sweet friends, Ben and Zoe, took us down to Brighton on Saturday where my heart melted and I completely fell in love with that little city!  I mean, look at the colors…I can’t handle them at. all.  We had the best time wandering around town, enjoying seaside bites (including pomegranate mint lemonade!), playing arcade games on the pier (Ben was so pumped about winning that minion for Zoe), eating gelato, sipping coffee, and soaking up all the goodness.  Also, I got to hold a fluffy Border Collie puppy so whatever chill I had left was completely gone after that moment haha

33-41) It’s been pretty cold and dreary this week, but Colin and I went out for a walk a few days ago and found some gorgeous views over Bedford.  It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to just start walking and find a footpath that leads somewhere really beautiful.  Also, I really will never get over how lush England is.

42) More vintage book shopping, I can’t keep it together when I see gorgeous covers like this!

This weekend we’re celebrating Tom’s birthday and ((hopefully)) soaking up some sunshine :)  May your weekend be full of rest and inspiration!

love,

M

1-2) Colin and I have been riding the bikes Tom let us borrow, and this weekend we took them to a cafe called Danish Camp!  We didn’t eat there or anything, but we loved the trail we took to get there.  I will never understand how everything is so pretty here!  Also, I want that sign in my house haha

3) This house has great yoga space, especially since it features these cute plants–gotta love jade!

4) Since we’ve had so many rainy and cloudy days this week, we’ve spent lots of time inside.  I’ve been drawing just for fun (here’s the beginning of one) and listening to The Silkworm in audio book form.  And drinking tea, always tea :)

5-6) My mom sent us a birthday package that included this Patagonia pullover and Colin’s new glasses (his glasses just came in after we left the US…they weren’t his birthday gift haha).  I love the New Mexico vibes going on with this sweater, and of course I love Colin’s glasses!  Also, how great is that mug?

7-13) Yesterday we went out for a walk in the rain, and it was still so lovely.  England is dreamy, especially its meadows and trees.

This weekend we’re taking a day trip to the coast with a couple of friends!  Have a great weekend, friends!

love,

M

San Diego 2016 Part Two

Hello again, today I have some more California photos to show you!  These are from two different sunsets in Ocean Beach (OB), San Diego.  The first sunset was enjoyed from Pt Loma Nazarene University, and the second was captured first at our AirBnb and then on our walk to the OB pier.  Brian took all the photos of Colin and me, and I just love them all so let’s get to them shall we?

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!
