Mike and I are in England right now, visiting his parents for Christmas. Today we had beautifully sunny weather, so I spent the afternoon walking around Easton, the village where Mike grew up. It’s a small town of only a couple hundred people, near the city of Wells in southwest England. I walked around today and took pictures of all the cool-looking old stuff in the village. Of course the people here are just as contemporary as everyone else, but I’m American and therefore I love English old stuff. After six years of visiting England together, Mike is learning to accept that about me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

See how low in the sky the sun is? I took this picture at about 1:30 in the afternoon. We’re at such a high latitude that the winter sunlight looks like sunrise all day.

I love that village. it is so quaint and the scenery is beautitful!!

Wait ’til June when England and the U.S. start play in the men’s World Cup Soccer tournament by facing each other! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Where in England are you and Mike?

I guess it would be southern England, since there still appear to be a few plants flowering and the grass is still green.

What a beautiful place! Wish I lived somewhere like that.

wicked! a car with real, not faux, wood details!

I love the same things about England that you do. The patina of age just adds so much character to things, and the light is beautiful. I also love how they paint their doors such bright colors. Glad to see that you are enjoying yourselves! ๐Ÿ™‚ Tamera

Gorgeous Charlotte, as always. ๐Ÿ™‚

Simply gorgeous!

very cute pictures!

Please could you let me know next time you are in England as I’d love to book a portrait session with you quite close to Somerset, if that is possible?
Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

I like your cute hat, too! Great pictures!

lol this is so funny!
Uusally I spending ages scrolling through your photos, ooo’ing & ahh’ing at the pictures, but now that you’re in England & seeing sights that I see on a very regular basis, I hardly stopped the scroll button from moving!
Don’t get me wrong, they are all beautiful pictures & it shows that you are indeed very talented in what you do – but I see the sights nearly every day!!
Oh, you gotta love England….

You maybe experiencing nice weather where you are, but here in Essex (the East side of London) we had 5 inches of snowfall!

That one is my favorite too.

Wow, look at all the growing green things in December. Thanks for the great photos!

beautiful! I went to Bath, the Cotswold, and London last May – so breathtaking!

Very nice! I especially like the fourth one, of the iron fence posts with the church in the background.

The lighting makes for beautiful pictures, but I’m not sure I could handle living with such low light all day!

AWESOME!!!!! What a delight to see England again! Thank you so much for sharing.

Postcards, well better than that!
