Let's just have a quick cuppa

I like tea, and I like cute places to eat and drink. I wish I could spend all my free time sitting in the most prettiest of places with a cup of tea or coffee in my hand.

Tea for two

Today I went to the cutest restaurant. I saw the cutest see through glass teapot with a beautiful flower inside. I had to have some of this tea. Ordered two different types of the flowering tea. The tea was really refreshing and felt like another form of green tea.
We wandered around today. It was a very relaxed day. Looking in cute shops and stopping for coffee and treats. Just feeling relaxed and not rushing around.
I really can't wait off my two weeks off work, I really need it. I just want to wander around without a care in the world. Not worrying about having to get home early for work or other things. Just being free to enjoy these beautiful evenings.

Spring is in the air

Myself and David went to see the new Captain America movie the other night. We really enjoyed the movie in the super tiny movie theatre. Chris Evans is the bees knees, he's awesome as Cap. The next morning we chilled out and had cupcakes for breakfast. Then in the afternoon we ventured out into Canterbury for the afternoon and evening. We purchased pretty treats and Mother's Day gifts. 
We also wandered outside the cathedral where we had our first kiss. It was a lovely evening. I love spring, pretty pastel skies and fresh evenings.
Then we decided to try this new Burrito place that just opened up. Super friendly staff, super loud music, and super yummy food made for a perfect evening. And the burritos were SOOOOO GOOD. We will defiantly be going back.

Here comes the Bride

On Sunday I was lucky enough to be invited to my friend Claire's wedding. It was wonderful to be invited to the whole ceremony and evening do. It was a cloudy dark day when I arrived at the venue. Walked up to Sam, and he greeted me with a smile and a hug. He looked nervous, but you could tell he was so excited to see Claire. Found a seat and waited. Claire was 10mins late, and then the sun came out so bright, and then Claire appeared. She walked over a bridge, up this beautiful garden, into the ceremony room. She looked so beautiful. Breathtaking. Her dress was wonderful, beautiful lace with a vintage feel.
They said their vows, exchanged rings, and then they were married. It was so lovely, and I felt so lucky to be there. Being at weddings makes you think about your one of course, and who you would invite. So lucky to be part of their special day.
All the decorations were so cute and very vintage. Lots of bird cages and wonderful flowers. The food was perfect too, and lots of wine.
The speeches and first dance were all so lovely. The first dance had dialogue from About Time. Weddings just make me so happy, all the positive and happy energy within everyone. Such a perfect day.

Strike a match

Recently I have said I am working a lot more on my art. When I met David for a spontaneous coffee date, we went for a wander around Canterbury. We found this beautiful exhibition by Andrew Malone. I have seen his work around Kent for sale, but it was really nice to finally see a mini show of his work, a collection together.
The main piece in his show was a giant frame filled with old matchboxes that had old pictures of birds coming out of them. Plus some were filled with shells and plants. Each one was carefully created and then mounted together in a beautiful fashion. I love collections. This collection was wonderful. I was truly inspired, and I wrote that in the comments book. Just made me want to create more, and I need that drive. The afternoon was perfect.
