A Few of My Favorites From Across the Pond

This week I am in North Carolina visiting family and my aunt from London is visiting us as well. She brought one of my all time favorite things- Moet Pink Champagne.  We will certainly pop this open Thursday over Thanksgiving dinner. 














My aunt also brought some great British magazines
We always get a huge stash of British chocolates including Dairy Milk, Mars, and other chocolates when any of our relatives visit us from London.   My brother, sister, and I all have to divide the "goods" equally since we all love these chocolates. (and seriously the British chocolates really do taste better.)  We have to keep these away from my husband and daughter who both seem to have a serious weakness for chocolate.
And I got this lovely necklace and bangles from her as well.









 I am so happy and thankful for having some time this week to relax, reflect, and spend quality time with my family.

What are you happy and thankful about today?

Sounds wonderful, Naina. I lived in London for six or so months (as well as Ireland) and I couldn't get enough of their chocolates! Double Deckers were my favourites, though they didn't do my waist any favours. And I just loved their magazines as well. Magazine selection is pretty limited in Australia so it's always fun to read new ones.

Enjoy the time with your family, it sounds lovely :)

Omg! we have the exact same taste. What chance that we were separated at birth? Could you share some of that with your long-lost sister? You know as a welcome back home thing.
