Of the moment // 11.23.18


We&#8217ve spent this week in London and Tallinn, and it has been such a delight! Regardless of the incredibly quick days and cold temperatures, we&#8217ve had a beautiful time catching up with pals and indulging in so substantially scrumptious meals. This is my sixth-ish trip to London, and I&#8217ve particularly enjoyed going back to so a lot of of my favourite spots AND feeling incredibly confident navigating the Underground. And Estonia has in fact been on my list to check out for a although, and the cobblestone streets and colorful painted doors have entirely lived up to my medieval fairy tale expectations.

Daunt Books in London


Eleanor Oliphant is Entirely Fine is 1 of these books that I&#8217ve observed about for the final couple of years, but I honestly kept having it confused with Exactly where&#8217d You Go, Bernadette?. I lastly realized that although I had study WYGB, I hadn&#8217t in fact study EOICF&#8211and due to the fact my mom was about to study it for her newly-formed retirement book club, I decided to join in as nicely.

&#8220Anytime I get gloomy with the state of the globe, I feel about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. Basic opinion&#8217s beginning to make out that we reside in a globe of hatred and greed, but I don&#8217t see that. It appears to me that enjoy is everywhere. Normally, it&#8217s not specifically dignified or newsworthy, but it&#8217s often there &#8211 fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old pals. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the telephone calls from the folks on board had been messages of hate or revenge &#8211 they had been all messages of enjoy. If you appear for it, I&#8217ve got a sneaky feeling you&#8217ll come across that enjoy in fact is all about.&#8221 -Adore In fact
