Pink England for Pink Saturday: Part One

It's hard to believe that just one week ago to the minute, I was enjoying lunch in the beautiful Orangery of Kensington Palace in London.  Now that I'm back at home and back into my wife/mommy/homemaking routine, England feels a million miles away!

I'm hoping to do lots of photo and story sharing over the next few weeks---I've got thousands of great pictures and countless memorable experiences to pass on.  Today I thought I'd do a mini-round up of fun things from our first couple days.  I'll be sharing this at Beverly's Pink Saturday, so when you're finished here, be sure to stop by her blog at How Sweet the Sound and see what other great pinks are there today!

My wonderful chauffeur...guarding my luggage while I roam around the airport.  It was my first flight anywhere. I was so nervous before I got on the plane but once I got on, I loved every minute of it!

Me and a few friends after the Jane Austen Festival Costumed Promenade in Bath.  What an excellent day! (Check out the video I linked...I'm in it!)

After the promenade, we headed to the Jane Austen Centre Tea Room for sandwiches and scones.  I had the most wonderful tea: The Empress of Peking.  It was delicious!

Some of our ladies at the Assembly Rooms in Bath, waiting for the Regency Costume Ball to begin! These are the same rooms where balls were held in Jane Austen's day and the ones she references in her books!

Do you have any great travel memories to share? I'd love to hear about them.  Be sure to leave a comment and visit the other pinkies at Beverly's Pink Saturday!
