It was a year ago this weekend that Ashley and I got married. Time flies! I can still remember rushing around posting invites and impatiently awaiting RSVPs. In fact, it feels like just yesterday that I was walking up the aisle (and balling my eyes out!)
We’re both people who like simple gestures— we’re not really into lavish gifts and uber expensive getaways— so we took the opportunity to have some baby-free time together and spent Friday in Westfield, perusing the shops and eating in Byron Burger, while our little Byron was with my mum and dad. How delicious are the Oreo Cookie Milkshakes, by the way? Very, is the answer.
We got up bright & early on Saturday and made our way to Portsmouth. Neither of us had been before, but I’m sure we’ll go back and see more of it, as it was lovely— and only an hour & a half on the train! If you haven’t been, you should go. We only walked around Gunwharf Quays, but it’s full of lovely little outlets, great places to eat (we munched at Jamie’s Italian) and things to do. We love a viewpoint, so a quick trip up the Spinnaker Tower was a must! It was a sunny and clear day, so the views were amazing and it’s a decent price too, considering you can spend as long as you like up there.
I think we’ll have a look around Southsea next time and also visit The Tenth Hole, as we missed it this time around!
