I have to start by apologizing for posting this so late in the day, but I have a very good excuse. My critique group got into a heated debate over real mashed potatoes vs. instant mashed potatoes. I have to admit, I am my father's child, and I inherited his love for instant. I hate lumps, and no matter how many people have told me "Oh, MY mashed potatoes don't have lumps!", they still have lumps. Instant are guaranteed to be smooth and creamy, and to me, when made with milk, butter and covered in turkey gravy, they taste the same. So that's my horrible excuse for being late today.
However, I would love to share some inspirational pictures from my trip to London a few years ago. My husband and I had an amazing time, and we have close to a thousand pictures and 4 hours of video footage. I won't post all thousand pictures today, but I'll post chronologically over my next few blogs. We started with a trip to the Temple Church. Hopefully, the pics will get your imaginations working and inspire you to get writing...or reading :)

The Temple Church is a late 12th century church in London located between Fleet Street and the River Thames, built for and by the Knights Templar as their English headquarters. In modern times, two Inns of Court (Inner Temple and Middle Temple) both use the church. It is famous for its effigy tombs and for being a round church. It was heavily damaged during the Second World War but has been largely restored. The area around the Temple Church is known as the Temple and nearby is Temple Bar and Temple tube station, all derive their name from the church.
We're on our way!
This is part of Middle Temple
To the left and right you can see the effigy tombs.
You may recognize this door...it was used in the Da Vinci Code!
This isn't part of the church, but it's directly across from it...
I just love this shot!
Next time I'll take you to Westminster and Harrods! Hope you enjoyed today's tour!
