london christmas.

in 2005, my family came to visit me in london for christmas. i think london is magical any time of year, but add some chilly temps and twinkly lights and it's even better.

{we went to midnight mass at westminster abbey.
this was the view down the road at big ben...see the teeny tree at the base?}

{every year since 1947, norway has given a huge tree to britain to display in trafalgar square.
i went to the lighting of the tree that year!}

{you may recognize this tree from love actually...
this is the mall that was down the street from my flat in princes square.}
