Happy July

Well, I apologize for the dormancy of the blog these past weeks. It’s been a whirlwind of activity in June. Let’s see … the kids got out of school, I had a birthday, our French friend’s teenage daughter came to stay with us for three weeks to learn English and experience a slice of Murica, we took a vacation in San Diego … whirlwind, I tell you.

But I’ve compiled my top 5 bits that I would have blogged had I eked out a little more time to do so:

1. Happy 65th birthday, NHS!

King's Cross, Wimbledon

Londoners could grab a deck chair to watch Wimbledon in Cubitt Square, King’s Cross.

2. Princess Charlotte’s christening. And more importantly, comedic riffs on Prince George’s outfit.

3. This transformation of Kings Cross in celebration of Wimbledon.

4. The U.S. Women’s World Cup win!

5. Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, cursing the photographer, during the 75th anniversary event commemorating the Battle of Britain.

I’ve been so busy with birthday celebrations and work that I’ve completely missed Wimbledon!

Today I caught up on some of the fashion this week. Tennis fashion? Really? Well, check out some of the best style moments on and off the court!

Have a great weekend!

Strawberries and cream – a winning Wimbledon double

Wimbledon is in high gear and that can only mean one thing: Strawberries and cream!

Check out the video from Whiteonricecouple.com, showcasing the beauty of this winning combination (particularly when you grow the strawberries and whip the cream yourself).
