I saw London

 layering in London: blouse: JC Penney // sweater: Madewell (two years ago) // jacket, jeans: Nordstrom // boots: ebay

As you may know, I went on a little trip. And now that I've returned, I was considering how many photos, how many blog posts would I dedicate to my trip?

I asked someone and they wisely told me, "Erika, it's your blog. You went to Europe and you don't have kids, so you need something to blab on about."

So it's decided: I'm going to blab on for a bit about Europe for a few posts. I hope you stick around, but if not, I get it. :)

The husband and I spent a total of five days in London, and they were split between two short trips. Overall, my thought on London was 1) it was very cold 2) it was very expensive.

When we were there, they were having the coldest March on record. It snowed a few times and the temperatures rarely hit above 40. The gloves I bought our first day there ended up being my best purchase the entire trip.

Despite the weather, we had a great time and nerded out over all the touristy-history things. Our favorites? The Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, and the two soccer...er football games we attended.

Here's a few photos from our trip: 



Tomorrow- France!
