Time is running out...

It's hard to believe we have less than a month left in England. I can't believe how fast time has gone. We have been blessed to meet life long friends, travel more than we could have ever dreamed, and just enjoy this ever changing journey we call life. It won't be long until this stage is over though and we are on to our next adventure... Oh, the uncertainties!

But before that next phase comes I should probably update my oh so loyal followers (that's you Mom) on what we have been up to lately.

We visited the Preston and London Temples. So very lovely. 

 In the rain... typical.

We celebrated our third anniversary! Yay marriage! We never actually managed to get a picture together. Oops... but we did go to a very posh restaurant and ate fabulous indian food. Priorities, right?

We visited the Cotswolds. Never heard of it? Google image it and be jealous. Unbelievably charming and notoriously British.

Side note: Debating chopping off my locks and doing something like this. Any strong opinions out there on the matter?

Also, we had a "heat wave" this last week. It got up in the 90s. It's been great! People here literally don't know what to do with this kind of weather though. SUNSCREEN IS YOUR FRIEND, PEOPLE!

OH! We also hit up Cadbury World. It's a bit of a let down when you are expecting Willy Wonka status. No chocolate rivers or oopma loompas? What kind of chocolate factory is this? But in all seriousness... we loved it because you get loads of free chocolate. 

Finally..........we are going to Italy this week!!! The Cinque Terre region to be exact. We are pretty pumped. We plan to eat a ridiculous amount of pasta and gelato. Also, sun, sun and more sun. 

Another side note that is too good not to share. I somehow managed to convince Austin to go shopping for a swimsuit with me for the aforementioned trip. I went to the fitting rooms to try a few on and we came across this sight.... Awards! Awards all around for these men. Look closely and you see the man in pink even carrying a purse. Just brilliant.
