Today Kailee, Lindsey, Brooklyn, and I went to afternoon tea! I haven't made it to tea yet, so I feel like I can leave London now without guilt. I mean, this is a British staple!

Now that I'm all caught up on my blog, I have this sudden urge to keep it really updated with fun little stories. Crazy, right? We'll see how long I can keep it up.
