American Adventure in Pictures

So, I'm back from my two-week American adventure and I can confirm that reality sucks! I'm still clinging on to the memories though, so I thought I'd cheer myself up by sharing some of my favourite photos. Apologies if you follow me on Twitter, as you've probably already seen most of these!

It all started in the Big Apple...

...including a delightful couple of hours with Sonja from Ginger Makes. Yes, she's every bit as cool, funny, kind and gorgeous in real life as she seems online. I now wish we were neighbours!

We then flew out to visit my parents in Charlotte, North Carolina...

...with a fun overnight trip to explore the quaint Black Mountain and bohemian Asheville.

We rounded off our trip in Connecticut, visiting my aunt and uncle...

...with a breathtaking roadtrip to Cold Springs, which certainly lived up to its name!


  1. Looks like a fun trip! My mother in law and her family live in North Carolina. It's a beautiful state.

  2. Awesome pics! We are hoping to go to America for my 30th which is a few years away. I wish we could do it sooner. Looks like you had loads of fun!

    1. Stop showing your youth off...some of us are old you know ;o)

  3. I'm so glad you guys had a great trip! Wonderful pics! And I really wish we were neighbors!!!

  4. Aww looks like you had an amazing trip!!!

  5. LOL! I have always imagined a posh British accent as well! Am I going to have to adjust this to a southern accent?

  6. Haha, don't worry ladies...I have a posh-ish British accent! We're not from the States, my parents and aunt just randomly live there ;o)
