And somehow, it’s February already.
January was a whirlwind, and I intended to write several different updates but school and life got the best of me, so this all-in-one recap will have to suffice!
After we returned from Amsterdam, my parents and I spent a few more days sightseeing in London before they flew home to NYC. We did a day trip to Greenwich, which was one of the highlights.
While my parents were here, they helped me set up my bedroom! My roommate was studying in Florence for the fall semester, so I lived in his room, but he’s back now, so I had to transform the office into a bedroom. Here’s a not-so-clear before picture:
Just a week after my parents left, one of my childhood best friends and her husband visited London on their way to Paris for a wedding!
We went to high tea, went to some museums and a musical on the West End, and went to the Sky Garden, an indoor garden and bar at the top of a building along the Thames.
The following weekend, I went to the Women’s March in London with a few British friends. It was wonderful and inspirational (reports said there were 100,000 people in London!) and I hope the momentum carries us far into this scary new era.
It snowed once in January – just a dusting, but the rooftops sure looked pretty!
My roommate and I went to a Vassar alumni event at the Oxford and Cambridge Club – we felt quite posh.
And of course, there was no shortage of beautiful sunrises from my apartment window!
As you might have seen if you follow me on Instagram, I took a very unexpected trip to New York this past week. It was under very sad circumstances, but it was great to be at home and see friends. I’ll write about that in a separate post!
