Sorry for the delay...

There has been quite a delay in posts here... but for good reason! T.J. and I undertook a huge flooring project that involved ripping up carpet, taking down doors, painting lots and lots of trim, and laying new floor. It is still in progress so I'm not quite ready to share. In the meantime we also took a trip abroad to London! It is a dirty crowded city, but also had some pretty cool architecture and lots of great chandeliers (kind of like DC, which I shared here). While we didn't see many, the gardens were definitely a treat and something we don't have enough of in the US. I would argue that Charleston SC is just as beautiful though.

Tower Bridge

Victoria at Kensington Palace and below: Kensington Palace gardens

Buckingham Palace gates
Big Ben (they even have crowns on the top of their fences)

One of the coolest things we did was visit the V&A Museum and see the fashion exhibit - 
they had clothes dating back to the 1700's. 

At the Victoria & Albert Museum 

1950s - Notice the adorable black and white polka dot one in the middle!

Check out the funny knob right in the middle of the door on the picture below on the right. We saw those all over the place! They made the doors look like faces.

 It was quite the trip and I think we both have the travel bug now... who knows what we will see next.
