A Day Just for Me

After a day of much excitement, a week of exhausted legs, and crushing my favorite camera lens yesterday... I decided to leave my large camera at home and just enjoy the day for me. I had no plans and not much expectations... but it turned out to be one of my best days ever.

I did everything I dream of doing... enjoying the city like a resident and not a tourist. Strolling the shops of Piccadilly and Soho, visiting my new favorite store Zara, Chinese for lunch, being a writer in a coffee shop, wedding cake from Fortnum & Mason in honor of the Royal Wedding, laying in the grass and staring up at the sky through the leaves (this has been my favorite part of my trip and something I've done on every sunny day), plucking grass, and strolling about 7 miles with stops to appreciate ducks and roses. My only regret was not to take a Claritin!

Why does YouTube freeze in the stupidest position?

I'm off to Birmingham tomorrow to visit my friend Sheila until Saturday! I'm so excited, but a little nervous too
I'm not sure about my internet access this week, so I have some scheduled blog posts for you with more London coverage!
If I don't get to reply to you... I'll chat with you in Paris! This goes for Facebook & Twitter, I won't get to post my daily links, so you'll have to remember to check back.

Have a great week!
