Our wedding anniversary!

Last week was quite an emotionally charged week. Sometimes I go through a roller coaster of emotions – normally initiated by a massive bout of homesickness. I miss lots about England from basic cultural stuff like food, television and the humor – to more intense things like friends and family. Sometimes that sense of longing for the UK is far deeper than at other times. I’m more susceptible to it at this time of year when the kids are back at school, summer and vacations are over and the days are getting shorter. Having said all that, if I was ever given the option to return to England I doubt I would. After 15 years here there are as many things I would miss about the US as I now miss about the UK! Basically I want my cake and eat it – if I could hit a button to swiftly move from one location to the other at will I’d be thrilled!

Fortunately the week ended on a massive high note – my husband and I celebrated 17 years of marriage on Saturday and I was treated to a slap up 5 course meal and some fabulous gifts. I was spoiled indeed! I dug out some wedding photos to share with the children – we had quite a giggle! Forgive the quality as I took photos of hard copies using my phone!

For our dinner out I chose to wear an AllSaints dress that I snapped up in the sale at Christmas. If you are partial to a bit of AllSaints there is 20% off currently using code ENJOY – valid in the UK and US!

Dinner dateDress – AllSaints // Boots – Zara // Clutch – YSL

These boots are lovely but come up quite high – if you’re looking for something similar I just discovered these gorgeous boots at Marks and Spencer – the 20% off code is still valid today too SEP15EM.

And here is one of the many reasons I love my husband so much – he finds the perfect cards, even if they require a little editing…

    Poppy it’s so lovely seeing your wedding pics – I LOVE seeing pictures from wedding albums!! You haven’t changed a bit in 17 years :))

    Funnily enough on my blog tomorrow I’m launching a little challenge in relation to wedding dresses – I do hope you’ll pop over and hopefully join in? I’ve just scheduled a post that’s a forewarning, so you only need to read tomorrow, nothing to actually do. All will be revealed tomorrow!
