Did you make it all the way through the pictures? And you're still interested in what I have to say?? Really??? Well go you and thanks a bunch! Sorry for the overload but this is actually edited down if you can believe me... sometimes I get a little carried away with my photo taking. But it's all memories so who cares... the more the merrier!
Well this was hubs and I's date at The Winter Festival here on Southbank this past Sunday. Apparently it happens every year and last year we totally missed it... I was so bummed about it... I mean how could we miss something so cool happening right outside our doorstep... almost literally! Well, not this year, oh no! I made sure of it and I am so happy I did too! If you are local, you really should try and get down there before the holidays are over. It's so magical... they have completely transformed Southbank into a winter wonderland, complete with wooden market stalls, fair style food, and a carousel. X-mas lights twinkle in the trees while buskers are still out and about doing their thing... reminding you that you are indeed still in London. Under the watchful eye of Big Ben and the London Eye, hubs and I ventured from stall to stall... ooohing and ahhhing at all the goodies... all the while sipping on mulled wine. We might have picked up a few gifts and taken a spin on a horse or two. I can confirm that some roasted chestnuts were devoured (very British apparently!)... some cool skateboarders were spotted... and hubs even declared his love for me in the form of graffiti chalk! All and all, it was the perfect date!
***Today I am thankful for this little winter festival... I think missing it last year made it all the more fun this year!***
