Happy end of December! I hope you all had a beyond wonderful Christmas and were able to spend lots of time with family and friends. I was finally able to look through all of my London photos and even edit a few! This trip was certainly one to remember and I’m so grateful for my marvelous parents for making it all possible.
Our first day was amazing! We battled jet lag to the bitter end and packed our day to avoid the comfy hotel beds. We started by visiting the LSE (where I got my Master’s), so my parents could see exactly where I studied and overcame numerous exam-induced panic attacks. We hopped on a bus toward the Tower and spent the rest of our daylight there. My parents seem to have loved it! It’s one of my favorite places in the city, so I was quite pleased with this. We then wandered to Harrods for dinner and well, general jaw-dropping moments. Since I’m a really nice wife, I bought my Christmas bear and saved my cool husband lots of money in shipping and such. I’m thoughtful that way. All in all, London Day 1 was the very definition of success.
