ENGLAND!!!

Last week I was fortunate enough to go visit the hubby in jolly old England!!! If you haven't noticed, I speak with an English accent quite often so I felt right at home! It was so amazing to be there, we stayed in Cambridge where Chris is taking classes for the summer and we were able to go into London 3 of the days. It was an awesome experience that I will never forget and I'm so grateful that I was able to do it!!!! Here are a few of the billion pictures I took:) In random order.....

Oh LONDON! I love it there with all my heart! I lived there and studied at Regents College in London and couldn't have fallen in love with it anymore than I did. All those pictures reminded me of how much I miss it! I'm so glad that you could go and experience that with Chris! How fun!
