Springtime in London

Over the past three weeks, London has been experiencing some amazing spring sun and warm temperatures. Like the rest of London, we have been trying to take advantage of the weather (especially since this just may the closest thing to Summer that we see!). I have enjoyed some fantastic long runs on the Heath and Schlopy is in his element as every canine in London seems to be out and about these days. Last weekend we hit a karoke bar for to celebrate a friend's birthday and then spent a pefect Sunday afternoon with a walk in the Heath and dinner at our favorite pub, The Holly Bush. And, of course, we had to follow it all up with a delicious late night crepe! This past Saturday, we met some of Jiggy's co-workers for dinner at Fakhreldine (, a fantastic lebanese restauarant with a view of Green Park. This place even came complete with a very active belly dancer! On Sunday, Jiggy joined thousands of other spectators in cheering on the runners at the London Marathon. Even though I was working and could not check out the race, I officially have the marathon itch. Berlin?

On another note, this weekend we are heading to Italy (specifically Tuscany) to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary! Stay tuned for details of our trip!
