Reading Mitford is a soul comfort... tender and cozy

"Your goodness to me has been overwhelming.
How tender you are, though I am often as tough as gristle.
How patiently you have loved me since you made up your mind to love me always."

~ Jan Karon

I love spring... the garden is blooming.  The azaleas are especially lovely.

I can just sit with my good cat and stare at the garden.

Becca in the kitchen

Rebecca made these chocolate muffins a few days ago and last night she made supper, consisting of meatloaf, coleslaw, cauliflower rice and roasted butternut.  I agree with Wayne, that her meatloaf was better than mine.

Two weeks ago, it was all Shakespeare prose

"Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice"
~ William Shakespeare

Amazing to think that he walked down these streets with his head full of timeless words.

I was so excited to be at his house.

At the Royal Shakespeare Company

More snippets, a little further north

We stayed on a farm in Elderminster, which was beautiful. Endless rolling green.

Loved breakfast with the delicate English china.

More snippets

At the Natural History Museum.. which is breathtaking as your approach it.

at Starbucks replenishing liquids

the always 'wow' Harrods

St James Park is so lovely

'Hello, we have come to visit the queen!'

Becca outside Selfridges - had to pop in there after watching the BBC series 

'Shall I have cream or cream with my scone?'

Or maybe something (or many something's) else... far too many teatime options. 
So delicious!

We have been away for a few days in the English countryside... quite fairytale-esque.  This is a quick glimpse...

Know this

This is what I want my daughter to know and may it resonate throughout her being...
