london, part one.

i am trying so hard not to forget any of it…watching the fog roll into london on the train ride in, the early morning in kensington gardens and afternoon in bloomsbury, that walk down bond street, the way the tower bridge gave me butterflies. 

so many of my childhood dreams and thoughts and imaginings were shaped by the things i was reading, most of which were set in or around london, so it was really incredible to see the city for the first time from the perspective of my grown up self. ever the dreamer and thinker and imaginer, i quickly came to the conclusion that, grown up or not, london is magic.


  1. I adore London and I love this post and your photos to pieces! Your photography and writing are so imaginative and beautiful. Who is your favorite female English author/poet?

  2. Thank you so much! Your comments are always so kind and encouraging :)

    My all-time favorite book is J.M. Barrie's Peter and Wendy...it's not just for children :) But my favorite author is Virginia Woolf (especially To the Lighthouse and Mrs. Dalloway) and I love T.S. Eliot's poetry.

  3. Thanks for answering my inquiry! I also love Virginia Woolf and T.S. Eliot. (Now I need to read Barrie's Peter and Wendy. Great recommendation!) Your writing and style rival that of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, and the rest of the best!
