Stonehenge

Last fall Omri’s friend and coworker, KP, came to visit us! So, in an effort to be good guides, we took him to Stonehenge; this happened to be Omri’s first time there and my second. Click to read

Snow!

Last night we got snow!! So fun!! It was the first snow of the season here in our town, but not the first we’ve seen this year. For us California kids, this was quite exciting! Teddy was slightly less impressed, but at his age, he’s probably seen it all!

Looking Back: Fall at Westonbirt Arboretum

Before we get too far along into 2016 (jk, this is my feeble attempt to apologize for being so far behind! Can you believe its already mid-Feb?!?), I’d like to do as the cool kids are saying and am going to “flash back” to a sunnier and warmer time – fall! (Though, I must add, …

Enchanted Christmas at Westonbirt

Bonus post! Not really, but I wouldn’t leave you for the year with my last post! Not that it was horrible, just a series of unfortunate events. Nonetheless, this is my last post of the year, and also, Happy Christmas! This is our trip to Westonbirt Arboretum, a beautiful Arboretum that we visited earlier in …

Christmas Tree Shopping!

It’s been years since we had a real live Christmas tree. I think the last one Omri bought for me as a surprise, maybe 3 or so years ago? Anyways, I decided that this year we would get one, and early too! Click to read 

To Avoid Disappointment…Avoid Dismaland

And back to our usual programming… events from the summer!

Back in the Countryside

Hello! Long time no blog. Sorry Gene… (and Naddav! What up!) Omri and I are back from our America trip and are feeling the post-CA blues… mainly me. But this is just a snapshot of our first weekend back “home” to remind us that its not all fog and rain here in merry old England …

Bathurst Estate

One weekend Omri and I were playing dog hoarders (jk!) and were watching Teddy’s cousins, Indiana Jones and Paddington Bear. The weather was beautiful out so we decided to take them out to Bathurst Estate for a nice walk (and dance!). Click to read

Jolly Nice

It’s a rainy day here in England so I wanted to relive (and post) a warmer, sunnier day! Since we live in the countryside, there are a lot of cute, independent organic farms and farmshops (selling their goods: veggies, meats, dairy, etc)  around the area. We heard a local farmshop, Jolly Nice, from Eran and Amelia …

A Walk in the Countryside

Omri and I were gifted a book about the Cotswolds and I just now got around to looking at it. Inside highlighted cute towns (many of which we have already visited), points of interest, and walks. We decided to follow one of the walks that was mapped out – we took the Teddy Bear and …
