Exploring London Town

I am currently in London meeting with friends and vendors and I have been looking forward to this trip all Summer! I’ll take any excuse to hop the pond, and have so been enjoying my short time abroad.

This morning I stopped into Borough Market where I enjoyed some delicious paella and couldn’t help but gaze at all the beautiful fresh fruits, flowers and veggies. Later on, I walked on the south bank along the Thames, took in the Tate Modern with its inspiring showing of Saloua Raouda Choucair (the world’s first major museum exhibition of this remarkable Lebanese artist). Afterwards I enjoyed the view from the Millennium Bridge and couldn’t help but marvel at my luck with the beautiful weather here!

I’ve been lucky enough to visit a few other great spots, some of them UK vendors for Linnea’s Lights, including: Les Choix de RomyHeal’s, Luma, Lipp Interiors, The Birdcage, and Graham & Green, were some highlights.  They are all so lovely! Now I’m off to enjoy my last few days here, and please let me know of anything I must see or do before heading home.

America the Beautiful

Linnea’s Lights is an American company through and through so like most of you, we’re beyond excited for the upcoming Olympics and filled with pride for our country.

It’s so awe-inspiring to watch these skilled athletes who have trained their whole lives hoping for a chance at victory. Personally, my favorite summer events to watch are track & field, swimming and gymnastics. I also love seeing the kids cheer on their favorite athletes and remember back to when I was young and how the Winter Olympics Figure Skating events inspired me to take up lessons at the local rink.

The games have become so much more that just an athletic event. The Opening Ceremony is a true spectacle and I never know what to expect. The games are also a source of pride and community, something our team at Linnea’s Lights relates to completely. For the next few weeks, you’ll find me wearing my red, white, and blue around the studio proudly!

What’s your favorite sport to watch during the Olympics?
