Weekly Love: Week 130

Well, I’m finally back in London! If you’ve been following me on social media, you’ll know I’ve had an incredible two weeks or so first in Kent, then traveling down to the Loire Valley (my post about which is already online!), then on to the Dordogne, travelling north again to spend some time in Brittany, before soaking up the last of the Bank Holiday sun back in Kent then before returning to London. I’m so excited to share all of the photos I took and some stories from the trip, but while I work on narrowing down and editing the 10,000+ shots I took (!) be sure to head over to my Instagram, where most of what I got up to, from the hotels we stayed in, restaurants we ate in and chateaux we explored and caves we went down into are saved in my highlights.

What have you been enjoying this week, and what do you have planned for the weekend?
