Home is where ever I am with you

23:21






This is what made our week:

1. Sunshine, sunshine & sunshine.
2. Multiple BBQ's in the park
3. Roasting marshmellows for desert on the bbq.
4. Writing our London tour guide as guest post for Simply Us: here.
5. While writing this, appreciating the great city we live in and seeing it with new eyes.
6.Dave became an uncle! Welcome, little Marcus Lee into this world (we can't wait to meet him soon)
7. Getting our one way tickets to Sydney. It starts to feel real and butterflies arrived in my belly.
8. Hanging out together after David has been sent overseas for several business trips.
9. Listening to Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros. (We love their song Home)
10. The idea that we can feel home anywhere together.

You can tell it's summer, when all the windows of our building are WIDE open.
It feels good.

What made your week?

    1. Yes, we are! A BIG move. The planning started last year, when we started all the paperwork: http://livplusdaveequals.blogspot.co.uk/2011/10/weekend-to-ourselves-and-so-much-good.html

      and my Visa got approved a month ago, when we came back from Croatia: http://livplusdaveequals.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/sea-sun-saplunara.html

      Now that we have got the tickets it starts to feel very real.

  12. Such a beautiful post title. It really speaks to me. My husband and I are constantly moving from place to place, so our surroundings are never constant enough to give us that home-y feeling. To us our home is wherever we end up together. :)

    1. We are somehow a moving generation I guess! It has it's beautiful sides.
      Right now I am looking forward to hopefully settle somewhere, and just travel from time to time, without leaving everything and starting again.
      I am dreaming of a nice place. But you are right, the main thing is to be together!

    1. We use my good old Canon 350D with a couple of different lenses. In this post mainly a fixed 50mm lens. And we are using Dave's iPhone (he has the latest one, while I am still using the 3GS).
      It's time to start a little FAQ's page soon ; )
      I am collecting the questions right now.

You two look like you're having an amazing summer! Also, you've convinced me that I REALLY need a grill for roasting marshmallows in my life. Enjoy what's left of the summer!
