October: A Month in Review

What a month we had at Casa di Lily & Keenan! It has been an awesome month with lots of friends in town from California, great company of London-based friends, delicious dinners, fun happy hour drinks, and to top it off -- the weather has been amazing! I love autumn in London especially the vibrant colours! So, here is a month in review in numbers:

Four: Friends who stayed with us this month
This includes one Ph.D. student, one college roommate and her new husband, and one lady on her post-bar trip. It’s been great fun having you all here in London.

Our "adopted" UC student:

Stroll through Camden and dinner at Tayyab:

One: Wedding Anniversary
We celebrated one year of marriage in Paris!

Two: Missed weddings in October; one in NC and one in CA
Congratulations to the happy couples! We were able to congratulate one happy couple in person in London two days after their wedding!

Newly-weds in London:

Three: Family members' birthdays
My older sister on the 5th, my mother on the 12th, and Keenan’s nephew on the 23rd.

One: Trip to the Kentish countryside
This was a long overdue trip out to the beautiful English countryside to meet little Edward, our friends’ 10 month-old son who is of course adorable.

Little Edward:

One: Oktoberfest (in London)
We didn’t make it Munich for Oktoberfest this year (maybe next year?), so we attended an Oktoberfest bash at the Bavarian Beerhouse in London. Good fun!

One: Missed babyshower in San Francisco
The first of our close friends are expecting in January 2010 , although I think Baby K will be arriving in December. So exciting for the parents-to-be! We can’t wait to him!

One: Year living as Londoner
30th October is Keenan’s one year in London. Time sure flies -- one year!!

One: Halloween celebration in London
Halloween landed on a Saturday this year! See the photo below – no explanation required! I spent Halloween in Italy!

Zombie Party:

And not to mention…countless laughter, Kodak moments, and probably far too many calories and pints for our own good!

Great friends is priceless.
