1-2) We went out for drinks with some of our English friends during the short time between Edinburgh and Paris. The Embankment in Bedford is adorable and delicious, and I miss our friends already :(
3-51) Our lovely friends, Steph and Kyle, met us in Paris for a few days! We had the best time eating crêpes, walking around the city, enjoying the sunshine, picnic-ing by the Eiffel Tower, wandering the Louvre, and hanging out with our favorite Skidmores :) Some of the cafes and restaurants you see here are; Radiodays, le Poutch, and Jeanne B (I had gazpacho for the first time here, and it blew my mind!). I’d recommend all of them! Paris, you are the most dreamy.
52-53) Back in Bedford to pack up our things and leave for a long long while…I miss it so much already! To every single person that we met there–thank you for the love you showed us even though you knew we wouldn’t be around forever. You all are so special to us, and we hope we get to see you again so soon!
54-58) Speaking of people that I already miss, these kids are at the top of that list :( Tom and Ro drove us to London and spent the day with us before we flew back to America. We had a lovely lunch at Granger & Co. before saying goodbye to Big Ben (I insisted). Love you, Heasmans!
59-74) Several hours on a plane later, we were in Chicago! Our friends, Sean, Kristen, Brian, and Morgan, met us there and ran around with us for a few days :) We had an amazing time–Chicago is just one of the greatest cities! That coffee shop (in case you didn’t recognize it from the dozens of photos I’ve taken there before) is Heritage, and I think it’s my very favorite in the USA….but that’s a hard call to make!
75-80) Whew! After a quick layover in St. Louis (hi, Rau family! I wish we could have seen you while we were there!), we finally made it back to OKC! One of my first stops was Well Beauty to get a mani/pedi (traveling and walking around all the cities is hard on ya feet), Cuppies (obviously), then Barrios (a new-since-we’ve-been-gone Mexican place in OKC) with my bests (Beth & Chelsea). So, all the good stuff :)
81-83) After dinner, I went to Beth’s house to pick up Bozeman! It was a happy reunion with that sweet pup.
84-86) WE ARE SO PROUD OF OUR BEST, BRIAN! His film was chosen to be shown at the Dead Center Film Festival in OKC, and it was so official and exciting and such a big deal! Ya got dreams, kid. Remember us when you’re rich & famous!
WOW. Sooooo many photos! Thank you all for your patience with me as I struggle to keep up with the pace of my own life! I have some ideas and projects I’ll be working on in the next several weeks and months, so come back often to make sure you don’t miss anything :)
I hope you’re having a great day, friend!
