Yup. This happiness. Pure joy. There was snow in Central Park and these swings were totally calling our name. We waited our turn to get a couple next to each other, and then we were 5 years old. Em swung so high I was sure she was gonna swing right round the pole. Honestly is there anything better? Em’s gone back to London now and I don’t know when I’ll get the chance to see her again, but as she put it it was ‘the happiest she’s been in the last 10 years.’ Big call, I know. Our friend Katie who we stayed with conceded that it was in her top 5 ‘sections’ of all time. I’ll take that.


Yunno what else is pure joy? Winning a giveaway! And it’s time now for the winners winners chicken dinners!
