    Fabulous photos!!! I’m so envious of your adventures there!

    My husband was looking over my shoulder (he’s not a blogger) and marveling at the amazing views! When I scrolled down to the one of the cinnamon roll – he went crazy! Cinnamon rolls are his favorite :-) He immediately felt a kindred connection with you!
    And said he would, based on your invitation, FINALLY fill out his passport application (that was our pre-election exit strategy if McCain won!) – in order to come to London for such a delightful treat!

    Blessings to you, dear one.

    Wow, these are amazing photos! And the cinnamon buns? Yum. My Grandmother use to make the tastiest cinnamon buns ever. When I’m in London (soon I hope) I’m going to take you up on that offer!

    These photos are gorgeous, Leonie. I love the view from the rooftops and the crow. I am very curious about the coffee. I wish I could wing over to explore London with you.

    These photos are incredible! That cinnamon roll is so amazingly scrumptious looking, and the views of London are incredible I also love the way you’ve aged the photos. How did you do that?

    It’s a good thing the cinnamon bun is a picture, and not the actual thing here in front of me. ‘Cause I would totally scarf it down without a thought about my diet!
    That just looks incredibly tasty!
    Your pictures are so breathtakingly beautiful ~ the crow, especially really speaks to me.
