England, Here I Come!

I'm ready to hop on a plane headed to England! This is my favorite season, full of flowers and colors... enhanced by the beauty of those magical places!









I already arranged to view some lovely properties... Can't wait!!... I'm so thrilled, and ready to eat eggs, bacon, sausages and tomatoes for breakfast, cucumber sandwiches and scones at teatime, lots of Cadbury too (as suggested to me by a sweet girl ;))! And have some good Darjeeling and Earl Gray. Oh, and surely will take tons of pictures for you!!!
I'm off to fill the suitcase(s)...

  6. Monica,
    I know you are so excited!!!!! I would be too. Glad you are packed up & how many boxes is the count now? Good Luck finding just the right cottage for you & Kim. Speaking of Kim, how is our precious girl? I am so sorry she had to have surgery but, she looks as though she is doing well. I just got the new magazine that you are in & can't wait to sit with a hot cup of coffee or tea to enjoy & savor each page. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!! I am so proud of you my friend. Life has been crazy with Hubby's surgery but, it is behind us now & he is getting stronger every day. He has been around 24/7 so I haven't had much ME TIME. And he is just a bit jealous of the time I spend with my blog friends so... I am behind. HUGS!

  18. Oh, I so envy your; I went to England when I was 17. It was magical, no London fog, but the area is drenched with so much history and circumstance~
    I love afternoon tea and the ceremony of it. I remember the first time I had tea for our continental bkfst, the milk was steeped and amazing rolls with jam. It is a pick me up for the soul~ Have an amazing adventure, enJOY!
