4 years is a long time!

It's hard to believe but this Thursday Dan and I will celebrate four fantastic years of marriage. That's long enough to no longer be considered newlyweds; for people to start wondering when we'll have babies (not yet!); and for me to know that I'm a real lucky girl. To really draw out the anniversary we will not only go out to dinner on the day (that's not enough!), but we also devoted this weekend to celebrations. Here's a glimpse. (I don't put nearly as many photos on this blog as I'd like because we have quite an old camera, so please pardon the photo quality.)

Peach Bellini brunch in Soho

First coffee stop of the day

Coffee+Books+Dan= very happy Alisha

Sweet door in Chelsea

Lazy Sunday in the Nordic Bakery

Dan bought this book at the above bookshop yesterday. Can't wait to read it but even more, can't wait to add it to my colour coded bookshelf. Robin's egg blue really packs a punch.

Finally, as if that wasn't enough, Sunday afternoon tea at the Dorchester. Thank you so much to our 'small group' at church for surprising us with this gift! We had a lovely time being treated to tea at this posh Park Lane hotel. We are well loved - thanks guys!

Dan didn't really wear this penguin t-shirt for high tea. He changed out of his shirt and tie after, I swear.

Sigh ~ love this entry! Somehow your great jacket, coffee, and knowing about your color-coordinated book shelf makes me feel like i'm visiting! Happy Anniversary Alisha and Dan!
Btw, i'm not surprised you guys are planning on waiting for a bit for babies, but when you do, i imagine you'll have girl first like rowdy roddy!!

YES! I've been waiting to see pictures of you two gorgeous people. Congrats on the anniversary--I guess that means ours is soon too. :) I hope ours includes books too. And oh how I love that Chelsea door.

Contratulations on your anniversary you guys! It seems like only yesterday I was warbling 'Lord Please Make Us One' from the alter at Doxa Church!
I am glad you guys had a wondergul weekend of celebrations - and tea at the Dorchester - get YOU! Haha! Lets totally make a plan to meet up very soon - if you are free next Saturday you are officially invited to Dirty Martini in covent Garden for Laurayne's Birthday. She would just love to see 'the two loveliest people she ever met' (I quote) and we can have a cheeky cocktail!
