Friday Phone Dump

“The phone line outside my house

Wonder what words it has seen
What would happen if they all spilled out
And, I got the lovely ones for free

Tie them in a bow and send them your way
On the fastest train I know, to get to you”

July & June // Jillian Edwards

I’ve been listening to the CDs that have been in my car since about 2012, so basically I’m reliving my college experience (which includes this song) :)

1-2) My sweet sweet friends, Maddy and Josh got married on Saturday, and I was honored to shoot their wedding!  These two have the loveliest story, and I am so thrilled for them to be married now.  You may remember them from their engagement photos I showed you a few months ago :)

3-4) We’re staying at the Skidmores’ apartment (since they’re still galavanting around Europe!), and they happen to have a lovely pool in their complex!  Sooooo I’ve been trying to enjoy it as much as possible while we’re here–especially with my smoothie in the afternoon.

5) OKC at sunset from a rooftop = :)

6) A different evening, we finally stopped by KatieBugs for a raspberry/lime/mint snocone! It was perfect as always

This weekend we’ll be running errands and crossing items off our to-do list.  I hope your weekend is relaxing and happy!

love,

M

1-2) We went out for drinks with some of our English friends during the short time between Edinburgh and Paris.  The Embankment in Bedford is adorable and delicious, and I miss our friends already :(

3-51) Our lovely friends, Steph and Kyle, met us in Paris for a few days!  We had the best time eating crêpes, walking around the city, enjoying the sunshine, picnic-ing by the Eiffel Tower, wandering the Louvre, and hanging out with our favorite Skidmores :)  Some of the cafes and restaurants you see here are; Radiodays, le Poutch, and Jeanne B (I had gazpacho for the first time here, and it blew my mind!).  I’d recommend all of them!  Paris, you are the most dreamy.

06092017 phone dump21

52-53) Back in Bedford to pack up our things and leave for a long long while…I miss it so much already!  To every single person that we met there–thank you for the love you showed us even though you knew we wouldn’t be around forever.  You all are so special to us, and we hope we get to see you again so soon!

54-58) Speaking of people that I already miss, these kids are at the top of that list :(  Tom and Ro drove us to London and spent the day with us before we flew back to America.  We had a lovely lunch at Granger & Co. before saying goodbye to Big Ben (I insisted).  Love you, Heasmans!

59-74) Several hours on a plane later, we were in Chicago!  Our friends, Sean, Kristen, Brian, and Morgan, met us there and ran around with us for a few days :)  We had an amazing time–Chicago is just one of the greatest cities!  That coffee shop (in case you didn’t recognize it from the dozens of photos I’ve taken there before) is Heritage, and I think it’s my very favorite in the USA….but that’s a hard call to make!

75-80) Whew!  After a quick layover in St. Louis (hi, Rau family!  I wish we could have seen you while we were there!), we finally made it back to OKC!  One of my first stops was Well Beauty to get a mani/pedi (traveling and walking around all the cities is hard on ya feet), Cuppies (obviously), then Barrios (a new-since-we’ve-been-gone Mexican place in OKC) with my bests (Beth & Chelsea).  So, all the good stuff :)

81-83) After dinner, I went to Beth’s house to pick up Bozeman!  It was a happy reunion with that sweet pup.

84-86) WE ARE SO PROUD OF OUR BEST, BRIAN!  His film was chosen to be shown at the Dead Center Film Festival in OKC, and it was so official and exciting and such a big deal!  Ya got dreams, kid.  Remember us when you’re rich & famous!

WOW.  Sooooo many photos!  Thank you all for your patience with me as I struggle to keep up with the pace of my own life!  I have some ideas and projects I’ll be working on in the next several weeks and months, so come back often to make sure you don’t miss anything :)

I hope you’re having a great day, friend!

love,

M

“Sweet creature, sweet creature
Wherever I go, you bring me home
Sweet creature, sweet creature
When I run out of rope, you bring me home”

Sweet Creature // Harry Styles

Confession:  I’m completely in love with Harry Styles’ new album.  I’ve never ever cared about One Direction or Harry before, but seriously–this album is so. good.

1-5) We’ve been running around Bedford capturing our favorite spots so we can keep them forever even after we leave.  I’m already sad that this time next week we won’t be here anymore :(

05292017 phone dump2

6-7) I’m also capturing little moments of light around this house we’re staying in.  How sweet are those honeysuckles?

8-62) Oh my goodness, Edinburgh was so beautiful it makes me want to cry.  Our lovely friend, Becky, sent us to stay with her parents there this weekend and I wasn’t ready for how great it would be.  I’m adding it to my list of the prettiest cities I’ve seen.  Also on that list (in case you were wondering) is London, Paris, Florence, Venice, Chicago, Santa Fe, and San Diego.  Some places you see here: Arthur’s Seat, Cairngorm Coffee, Milk Juicery, and Love Crumbs.

“There ain’t no darkness strong enough that could tear you out from my heart 
There ain’t no strength that’s strong enough that could tear this love apart 
Yeah, there ain’t no darkness strong enough that could tear you out from my heart
Yeah, there ain’t no strength that’s strong enough that could tear this love apart
Never gonna let you go”

1-2) We helped Tom and Ro move out of their house last weekend, and it was full of normal moving things; lots of cardboard boxes, sore muscles, and pizza :)  Also, Tom is actually a black belt in karate, so the nun chuck thing is serious!

05192017 phone dump2

3-4) We had a gorgeous sunny day on Sunday, so we took our afternoon tea and reading time outside.   Look at the lovely, giant, poppies that have bloomed in our friend, Sue’s, back garden!  So many (more) flowers are blooming right now, it’s amazing.

IMG_4690

5) These cuties (Zoe and Ben) took us to their favorite curry place in Bedford and we got this GIANT bread thing!  It was sooooo delicious, and of course we had a great time chatting with those lovely souls :)

6) More backyard flowers = all the heart eyes

7) My dresser area these days

8-21) What started out as a sunny morning earlier this week turned into a cloudy and drizzly day when we went for a bike ride and walk.  It was still so beautiful.  I will never get over the green and the river and the wildflowers here–it’s just stunning.

05192017 phone dump9

22) After our walk, we had a coffee at Danish Camp where we met this little sweetie!  Her name is Gracie, and if I wasn’t missing Bozeman before meeting her (I was), I was super ready to cuddle him after.

05192017 phone dump10

23-24) More lovely flowers!

05192017 phone dump11

25-27) We had the wettest day in England so far on Wednesday–it rained non-stop from morning through the night!  It was nice and peaceful to just have a quiet day inside, but eventually we had to go to the grocery store.  I laughed when the only umbrella we could find in the house was a massive rainbow one!  Love it.

05192017 phone dump12

28-29) Yesterday we had sun in the morning that turned into rain in the afternoon, so we spent the morning enjoying Bedford Park, ate lunch at the cafe there, then made our way to the high street to walk around before hiding from the rain in Coffee With Art :)

This weekend is our last full one in Bedford as we’ll be in Edinburgh next weekend, then Paris post of the weekend after that, then back in the USA!  So we’ll be spending this weekend enjoying the time we have left here.

I hope your weekend is full of hope and peace and joy, friend.

love,

M

1-6) Exploring Bedford–including Al’s Plaice for fish and chips, and Eagle Bookshop (the best) :)

7) I started a new notebook for brainstorming ideas for a project I’m working on!  More on that to come.

8-10) I will never get over the flowers and green-ness around here

11) Haha, I got done doing yoga the other day and I could not find Colin for the life of me.  Then I looked in the backyard and finally spotted him!

14-37) We went back to London yesterday!  It gets me every single time–I’m in love.  We started at Monmouth Coffee (as usual), then shopped around for a few souvenirs.  After that was lunch at our favorite, Pie Minister, then a bus ride to Hackney to find a cafe that Sean found on Instagram (Morty & Bob’s….it was gorgeous, like I want to live there) for tea, then a walk around the canal and Victoria Park.  Next was a rush hour trip on the Tube to Notting Hill for tacos (you may remember Taquería from my last London phone dump), and finally we ended the evening with Big Ben :)

This weekend, we’re helping our friends move out of their home and trying to wrap our minds around the fact that we only have a few weeks left here!!  For those of you asking, when we leave England we’ll be in Chicago for a few days, then Oklahoma for bit, then we’re not sure where we’ll be next!  I’ll let you know when I know, ok?  Ok.  :)

I hope your weekend is fantastic, friend.

love,

M
