Wonderful Wednesday #31

I'm currently in bed, listening to the birds chirping away, trying to put in to words how I feel about what happened on Monday and I can't. I just feel that at times like this it seems even more important to show gratitude, celebrate the small things, and find the beautiful amongst the wicked. 

Shall we?

Lunch in the Sun 

Wasn't the weather bloomin' lovely on Monday?! I took advantage of the clear blue skies and drove to the local lakes on my lunch break. I went for a little walk then picked a spot on a hill and read my book in the sun.

I used to go for walks on my lunch break quite often but I tend to stop when it gets too cold. Now the weather is improving slightly, I think I might start heading out on my lunch breaks more frequently and if I'm honest with myself, I need the exercise!

I finally tackled my closet (again) and put together another two bags for the charity shop. It always feels so good after you have a big clear out!

New York City | What I'm Looking Forward to

My first trip to New York was on my 18th birthday, I went with my psychology class on an 'educational' trip. I think we were supposed to be studying 'american culture' or something but I have a sneaky feeling the teacher's just wanted an excuse to do a hefty amount of shopping. 

There's not a lot of places I'd return to but as soon as I stepped off the plane, boarded the coach and saw the skyline, I knew it wasn't going to be my last time in New York and it isn't! In less than 10 days time, I'll be jetting off with G, my Mum and her partner Steve to explore the big apple once more.

Here's why I'm looking forward to going back...

Family 

Going to New York the first time was fun (obviously, it's NYC!) but it was a school trip. It meant spending time with your classmates and your teachers and whilst that was great, it's not the same as sharing the experience with your nearest and dearest. As mentioned before, I'll be returning with G, my Mum and her partner Steve. This is the first time we'll be going away together and I'm so excited!
