I’m On My British Holiday

Well, I did it! I turned 50 on May 1. Photographic evidence. Not pictured: the enormous (and enormously delicious) slab of carrot cake that I ate at brunch.

To continue the celebration, we’re taking off to the UK. Yay!

First up, it’s London…

… where we will shop in bookstores where EVERYTHING IS IN ENGLISH, enjoy a fancy tea, have dinner with dear friends, and…

That’s right! We’re seeing Hamilton.

Then it’s off to Leeds where I will explore historic libraries and museums.

Then we head to Brontë country on a steam train from Keighley to…

Haworth, home of the Brontë family.

We’ve scheduled a private tour at the Parsonage, which… I’m so excited, I can’t even really think about it.

The Five Paleo Dinners posts will be live every Thursday while I’m gone. Be good to yourselves in my absence!

    Wow, that all sounds amazing and I just know you will have an unbelievable time. Next time you go to the UK you have to visit Oxford, I can just imagine you exploring all the little cobbled streets, visiting all the places of literary significances and fainting from joy when you see the basement of Blackwells book shop! I might be biased though as it’s my home town !
