Other than still being super sick, day 12 was a really, really, superbly fantastic day becaaaauuuuse not only did we go to one of my favorite places on the whole trip but ALSO –> it was my mom’s birthday! Happy happy late birthday, mom!
So. These pictures (aside from the birthday ones at the very end) are all from Hampton Court Palace. To be honest, all I really remember about it is that it’s where one (or two?) of the King Henry’s lived and probably a couple Kind Edward’s. And it is absolutely BREATHTAKING. Gosh, what I love about these pictures in particular is that I still remember so vividly what it felt like to walk around the palace and see the gorgeous gardens and smell the incredible, clear air and just…AHH!!!! I miss it. I love it. I love it I love it I love it.
For my mom’s birthday, we got some take-away fish ‘n chips & made some little lemon cakes with lemon curd, cream, and berries. We shared favorite memories with my mom around the table (mostly really, really hilarious ones) and had a really great night. My mom is my best friend and I love her an awful lot. I’m so immensely grateful I got to spend Christmas break with her!
