Julying…

Busy busy bee over the past few weeks!

First and foremost – y’all may have heard a little something in the news about Brexit (exasperated sigh here please). Since then, the pound has plummeted, waves of racial hate and xenophobic crime have skyrocketed and a lot of liberally-minded, Europe-loving, finance-working Londoners have started exploring options elsewhere. While it is way, way, way too early to make any rash moves… there are a few options a brewin’… stay tuned. (In other words, I am trying to figure out my life so really, what’s new?)

London was looking pretty lush – blue skies for days (literally only like three days… otherwise it rained)

4th of July was spent celebrating my American origin’s independence from my British origins… red white and blue, thank you very much!

So I ate freedom cupcakes and worked in an American law firm in London…hmpf.

I might have worn festive sunglasses all week long in the office… just in case anyone forgot I am, first and foremost, an American.

My flatmate and I hosted a UK vs US themed housewarming 4th of July BBQ on the 9th of July (’cause no one gives us the day off here…)

Everyone had the appropriate eye-wear for the occasion.

When the sparklers came out, so did my game face.

Mexican beer, American sunglasses, tank top that says “Let’s get star spangled hammered” and sparklers – all made in China. ‘Merica.

Hillary served lethal jell-o shots Β to Prince Harry while Trump leered in the background… it was an epic party.

And no good update would be without a picture of brunch… avocado toast at the Elk in the Woods.

And after all of this, I still managed to hit my billable hour target for the month (I know you were worried I was just off having fun and not working… false).

Oh, and I spent last weekend in Paris…. but that deserves a whole other post… tee hee!

xoxo
