From London with Love

I am still trying to get back into the swing of things after 9 days exploring the United Kingdom. We started in London and once we figured out how to use the bus system we were able to get around pretty well. For 1.50 pounds a ride you could usually get around anywhere in the city. Just load up an Oyster card and go. For long distances we relied on Uber. It was a little expensive, but honestly sometimes it was just easier.

Did you know you can walk the same crosswalk in London that the Beatles did for the cover of their Abbey Road album?!? We have to do it while we were there!

I loved Piccadilly Circus! That’s where we ate too many M&M’s at M&M World and had some amazing pasta. The first 2 nights we stayed right near Kensington Palace and I absolutely loved the fact that we could walk around Kensington park. We were also close enough to walk to Hyde Park, which is gorgeous in the fall!

We opted into the London Pass which allowed us to get into multiple attractions. A tour of Kensington Palace was one of them!

Hyde Park in the fall is dreamy

Spent the day hopping around sightseeing. Check out the London Eye!

We saw so many amazing places after London including Cambridge, Nottingham, Liverpool and of course Tenby which will always hold a special place in my heart. The day we arrived in Tenby, Sam had reserved an amazing tour along the coast of Wales. On our last stop at Freshwater West beach, Sam proposed! It was perfect. We ended our trip in Bath before heading back to London and then home.

The small town of Tenby was an absolutely dream! We hope to go back again someday when it's not raining.

Now that we are back in Nashville, we are trying to make it through the holiday season first before we jump full force into wedding mode, but I have started dipping my toes into a little bit of wedding planning. I’m narrowing down a location because we’re thinking destination wedding, but of course I can’t reveal where yet!

One thing I have been looking into though is checking out online Save the Dates. I’m really loving the idea of this. No stuffing and no stamping needed! I have been working on creating a vision through Paperless Post and so far it’s been seamless. You can choose from different templates and add a little bit of your own flare with colors and fonts. What I really love is that you can import your guest list and also have your guests add in their mailing address once they’ve opened it. A great way to get all the information we need before sending out official invitations. Check out the video below of a little behind the scenes edit.

I’ll definitely be doing a post once they are complete and go out, so don’t forget to scroll down, enter your email and subscribe to the blog!
