And We’re Off – First Leg – London

Brittany and I rest under a beautiful sky in London

An hour outside of Heathrow International Airport in London, we lay in a field of soft green grass at Green Park. Jumbo jets fly overhead, taking their passengers to adventures of their own. We lay snuggeled under a naked tree, its white cherry blossoms having given way to time and the elements.



The sun hides periodically behind clouds that race across the afternoon sky, accompanied by a spiteful wind that causes us to shiver involuntarily. We both lay beneath this tree, bathing in the sun, a year ahead of us, filled with resplendent possibilities. A flight in a few hours will whisk us away to a land very much unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.  I’ve got my bags, my camera, and most importantly, my partner. I can finally say…I’m ready.

    Jamie, you guys went to Ireland in JAN. It rained almost everyday..We will have to pick a nice warm spot to visit them.

    I don’t know what you guys are talking about, every time I go to London I see blue skies at least part of the day. The weather just changes really fast and you can get 4 seasons in a day.
