Clear Skies {London Part 2}

Amazing story. We had postcard perfect weather every day we were in London. London is supposed to be the rainy, foggy town but it was rather nice to see it in the summer sunshine.
Blue doors at the London Tower.

Westminster Abbey

Hampton Court Palace.

Hampton Court Gardens. Let's pretend we're in a Jane Austen novel.

Inside the London Tower. The yeomen who give tours of the Tower actually live within the fortress walls.

London at Night {Part 1}

On our way home from Kosovo, Michael and I had a one night layover in London. While we were working on our Kosovo plans my mom came to me, somewhat giddily, with a plan she had cooked up.

"What if dad and I fly out and meet you in London on your way home??!!?"

So that crazy idea turned into Mike and I extending our layover to 4 nights and mom and dad taking their first overseas flight - and there we were! Mike and I had an exciting time carrying 4 weeks of Kosovo luggage through the tube station.

Anyhow, here I will take a mini vacation and post all of the happy memories we had during our 5 days in London. And now, without further ado...

Better late...

The first big snow of the winter! After Christmas? C'mon weather, stop being weird. As soon as I looked out my window I was able to forgive the weather, though. I took these around 11:00pm. The light bouncing off the snow and cloudy sky made it super bright outside. I concocted an umbrella/tripod apparatus to keep the snow off my camera and ran out into the street, giggling like a school girl. I probably would have been out there all night, only my fingers got too cold.
