The gigantic bags under my eyes in this picture along with the happy smile pretty much explain my adjustment to London so far. I am adoring wandering around this enchanting city; while simulatneously feeling like im going to collapse at any second becuase ive only had 7 hours of sleep since monday...and its thursday. So in this picture im standing next to the Thames in some icy wind. My favorite activity so far was

walking around Kensington Gardens and just soaking in my surroundings. It still feels like im in a dream, i wonder when reality will hit?

I don't even have words to say how excited I am for you. I have been imagining you in every possible place and I can't stop smiling! Isn't it crazy how close you are to Hyde Park - don't you feel like you live in the best place in the world?! Love you! Miss You!

Oh, and sleep soon or else you'll get sick (or sicker) and then there will be less you can see and do! Is it freezing or are you well equipped?!

Great photo! So wonderful to see you. I do think a tylenol PM is the right amount of sleeping potion to get you adjusted...do it soon!
