Today I’m wearing my favourite cardigan. It’s from Marks & Spencer in the UK & I’ve had it for at least 15 years. My love for men’s Marks & Sparks cardigans began when I borrowed one from my Dad’s closet while we were living in London. That was it, I had to have one for myself. My parents got me one as a present & I still have it! I love the colour – it’s green with bits of colour woven in. I love the fit, the warmth. Not sure what will happen when it wears out…I just looked it up, they still have cardigans, though not in the same colour.

I miss a lot of things about the UK. One of the more shallow things I miss is the shops. I like that there was different stuff than we have in the US. I love the big shops like M&S & Harrods & the high street shops like New Look, Top Shop & Primark. I also love all the markets & street stalls as well as smaller shops. We had a couple of great street markets near to where we lived – so much fun. I walked through the Bethnal Green Market most every day. The Whitechapel Market was great too. Then there was Old Spitalfields Market which was always buzzing on Sundays. We actually got my wedding ring at Spitalfields.
All that to say, I miss shopping in London. I’m thankful for what we have here, but I do miss it.
