LVTW: England

England [aka the Motherland] was a fitting start to our 8-week European adventure. I mean, where would the world be without the British Empire?

(Above: Kev and me at the airport in Sydney before I headed off for my 3-week trip to NYC/Malawi)

Quick update on my journey so far: My amazing friend and travel buddy Esther Havens pointed out that I hit 4 continents (Australia, North America, Europe, Africa) in 4 days… I hadn’t even realized it! Pretty crazy. And kinda cool.

Yesterday (Saturday, February 11 — also my wonderful husband’s birthday <Happy Birthday, Babe!>), we had about a 6 hour layover in London. Kevin had suggested I get in touch with our friend Amanda to see if she was free to come to the airport so we could hang out and catch up. It worked out to be perfect timing!

She picked me and Esther up and we headed to her dad’s house for coffee and a yummy egg/bacon brunch. It was glorious. Plus, we saw snow (I couldn’t even remember the last time for me), and sat inside by a cozy fire in the living room. We also Skyped with Kev… so fantastic 🙂

I’m so thankful for little blessings like that. Amanda, we miss you so much! Thank you for taking the time out to make our day. LOVE YOU! Check out some photos below.
