it's beginning to look a lot like...
… c h r i s t m a s ! ! !
yes! yay! it is officially, officially christmastime - hurrah! last saturday ian, moses and i picked up and set up our (spectacular, might I say) christmas tree and it is shining brightly in our flat. and little mo and I have been scouring the city for festivity (which is actually very easily found) every day since thanksgiving. i am convinced that there is no place on earth like london at christmastime. it is, truly, magical.
(btw, i am going to put together a post in the next couple weeks with all my favourite christmassy spots around london. hopefully it is helpful for any one who visits the city during the holidays!)
^^ at the christmas tree lot, and carrying the nine foot nordman fir to the tube station! ^^
^^ you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do. taking our huge tree on the tube was definitely a memorable adventure :) ^^
^^ unveiling her in her perfect bay window home … and slowly decorating her over the course of a few days… ^^
^^ christmas in the flat and christmas in the neighborhood! ^^
every time moses sees any kind of christmas decoration around london, he puts his hands in the air and hollers “yeeaaaaah!” he does the same thing every morning when we turn on the christmas tree lights. it is the best! he definitely inherited my fanatically-crazy-for-christmas gene.
^^ if you look really closely in these two pictures you can see … s n o w … !!!!! it hardly ever snows in london, but just this morning while moses and i were walking down regent street, legit snowflakes started flurrying around. i was seriously so giddy. and so were many other people on the street - it was so fun! the snow lasted for about twenty minutes and i could not contain my excitement. what a thrill. ^^
happy christmastime to all! i am off to work on christmas cards and christmas presents - lots to get done during nap time these days!
