Happy Friday guys! For someone that’s only worked a two-day week I’m super glad to be in touching distance of the weekend. Let’s just say that two days of work after a full-on amazing New York trip plus the after effects of a transatlantic flight do not a productive Fi make! Anyway, on to my favourite things of the last seven days!
First up, New York, New York! We had an absolutely amazing trip, full of all the festive cheer, brilliantly touristy things, amazing food, all the walking and just generally all the joy. I could not have asked for a better trip and I’m now 100% in Christmas mode. Honestly, I had no idea New York would be that festive. It was insane – the decorations that were everywhere were off the charts. If you can’t wait for one of our blog posts about the trip (hopefully coming imminently) then head on over to Instagram and check out #FLEinNYC2016 for all our pictures from the trip!
Also making me happy this week, and related to New York, catch ups with good friends. Two of our friends live in the Brooklyn area so our trip was the perfect excuse to catch up with them over copious amounts of food, browsing in shops and wandering around the city. It was joyful all round. Aren’t catch ups with your favourite people, wherever you are in the world, simply the best?
In other news, we decorated the house for Christmas and it’s wonderful. We have two trees, one bauble wreath, loads of strings of fairy lights and all the festive ornaments, including a reindeer that’s been decorated with reindeer head shaped fairy lights. What a delight they are! Have you put up your decorations yet, are you enjoying the little glances of fairy lights out of the corner of your eye. Or is that just me?
Finally, we spent Wednesday morning back in Surrey walking the pup and enjoying the last few days of autumn. Oh how I’ll miss stomping through the leaves and tramping through the woods. Anyone else feeling the same way?
So tell me, what was your favourite part of the last week?
