London Week :: Day One

Today we were mellow because Will just got in from New York. We went to lunch at The Orange which is so perfectly decorated, I just want to move in and live there. All lime washed wood and campaign chairs. Lovely and I finally got to have an authentic Caesar salad. It was heavenly.

This was recommended by fellow blogger, Heather, who writes the blog Canal Notes (yes, I have cool friends!). She is also an expat American. It was perfect and really close to where we are staying. After lunch we enjoyed the window displays around Sloan Square.

We spent the rest of the afternoon at the AMAZING Saatchi Gallery.

Is it wrong that amongst all this amazing art I was having trouble focusing on anything beyond how much I loved the floors? Those floors! And THIS:

This just blew our minds and we talked about it a lot throughout the rest of the day. That's what good art does. It makes you think and it brings you around to it again. It was fun to see my daughter come alive in the way she responded to the art. So much fun. Such a blessing this little adventure.

Do you know about what is in the picture above? I won't spoil it for you. Come to London and see it yourself. x, Beth

Sounds like a lovely day! So glad you liked the Orange - it's one of my favorites :) The chocolate shop across the street (William Curley) is also a tasty place to buy some treats - they also have a little cafe for coffee & desserts. Enjoy the rest of your week!
