After taking too many photos and videos ROLLER SKATING last night – toofuntoofuntoofuntoofun – my iPhone ran out of storage. I backed up my phone this morning and laughed at some of the random things I took photos of the past year (ummm, toilets) and got a little nostalgic (seeing how much Amelia’s grown up, Karma, holidays…). Also, I had some good meals and travels this past year!
Baby A – love her.
I appreciate a good bathroom, I do. Coolest bathrooms of the year: Burlington’s El Cortijo (toilet is literally a work of art) and London’s Churchill Arms (it’s a fantasy garden).

Speaking of London, I had taken photos of my meals and never blogged them. A few months late, but delicious nonetheless!
Ben’s Cookies, the best in London.
Borough Market’s El Brindiso chorizo roll, again the best in London (ha, I can say this about all my meals).
Borough Market’s Rich & Gooey brownies, better than anything I could ever make.
Pimm’s cup and Time Out London magazine reading:)
Thai, how I LOVE London’s Thai food!
A very British lunch at Hampton Court Palace.
Quick aside: the biggest potted plant I’d seen at Hampton Court Palace and the coolest vine tunnel.
Reading & red wine @ the Tate Modern.
Wait, MY FAVORITE BREAKFAST OF ALL TIME @ Columbia Road Flower Market. Fried egg, crusty roll, HP sauce.
When I’m in Europe, I eat croissants whenever possible.
Turkish food at Tas Restaurant Waterloo, this was the entire group’s favorite place to eat.
A healthy green drink every once in a while.
British Hunter chicken.
My favorite jerk chicken wrap and cold brew iced tea at Camden Market. I could eat this every single day! (One summer, we lived near the market and I did eat it every lunch.)
OR for lunch, I’d eat Pret-A-Manger’s hot pressed mozzarella/pesto/tomato sandwich.
One night, Professor B and I went out for sushi in London’s Soho district: ranked right up there with Japan.
Postcard writing @ a pub.
Oh, this was cute: my first breakfast at Eric’s in Ireland. I’ve never seen such a crazy tea cozy! I thought it was a hat at first. He made me porridge and pancakes.
And what a cannoli looks like in Sicily.
I snuck pics of a bunch of the theatres we went to in London as well.
My favorite play of the summer, The Curious Incident of the Dog & the Night-time blew me away.
Inside the Globe, we got to see Julius Caesar.
Outside the Apollo Theatre, where we saw Let The Right One In which was a creepy/cool Swedish vampire play.
Outside the Harold Pinter Theatre, where we saw The Importance of Being Earnest.
They did an awesome set job making it look like day-time inside a house.
Walking into Regent’s Park Open Air theatre, it’s so beautiful.
I’m not sure that our course is going to run this year (the upside, I could go on a long road-trip out west), but man, these pictures got me wistful for summer in London! Or just summer….it’s snowing and high of 3 degrees F here right now.
P.S. My favorite phone video! Allison and I have nearly the same voice.
