Day Trip To London and High Tea at The Goring

This Spring my friend Jennifer was traveling to London for work and we decided to meet up while I was in Paris. We have known each other from Chicago for years and have always discussed traveling somewhere together so this was a good opportunity. I took the Chunnel over to meet Jennifer and we spent the morning exploring and making stops for coffee and sweets.

We had a perfect spot right in the middle of the room with the most beautiful light. The Goring took such good care of us making sure our tea cups were never empty and our bellies were full. They gave us seconds on whatever we wanted. We started with strawberries and cream since it was the start of strawberry season.

We had a fabulous time exploring London and stopping for an afternoon of laughter, sweet treats, bubbles, and tea at The Goring. Where is your favorite place for tea?

 

A Sneak Peak at Cuba

I have been home for less than 24 hours and Cuba is on my mind. I can't tell you how wonderful it was to disconnect from everything and live in the moment. If I told you I was well rested after a jam-packed trip to Cuba I would be lying. I woke up early to chase the light and see the streets empty. I haven't had much time to edit or look through the photos but I wanted to share a little sneak peak at Cuba through my eyes. The city was filled with color and old cars but there were a lot of surprises I wouldn't have expected. Havana was a mixture of New Orleans and Europe and a bunch of old cars mixed in. 

I learned a lot about the people about Havana it made me appreciate everything I have and encouraged me to want to help and give back to the community. I will be sharing more details on how I plan to give back later on.
