passing out Bibles for about 4 hours a day to all kinds of different people, discovering the flat white from pret-a-manger which is really just like a café crème you would get in france or italy (stronger, shorter latte), wandering around portobello road market (could have spent many more hours there, had the best falafel wrap and candy-sweet strawberries, should have bought a souvenir tote that said: "keep calm and have a cupcake"), becoming obsessed with instagram, meeting all kinds of new people, being back in europe after 9 years (not counting russia), taking the "tube", all the wonderful food we shared with lots of new friends, the lovely gardens and greenery (i swear london has more green space than atlanta!), taking lots of photos on my one day of sightseeing, hanging out with my fellow volunteer and sweet roommate, the adorable little "under-the-door" notes from the family we stayed with, having a renewed love and gratefulness for my Bible.
i was happy to be home when i touched down real early monday morning, glad to be with my loves and back in my normal life, but i sure wouldn't mind if my normal life would move to europe one day. :)
