While I enjoyed seeing the historic spots and walking in a 'big city' simultaneously, my favorite views were of three things I personally greatly appreciate:
1. Nature (especially in this gorgeous fall weather. Oh my gosh I love October.)
3. Business men in tailored suits. I cannot lie; they just really get to me here.. Maybe it's because I essentially only live with girls and so any guy is starting to look good? That would seem a reasonable explanation backed up by all those missionaries out there suffering similar symptoms. But I, on the other hand, am more inclined to believe there is something in the water here. I would be willing to conduct a scientific study--not just correlation style because we call know *chanted in that annoying voice you use to recite something for the 4892 in life* correlation does not mean causation--to prove that an average man from London is simply more attractive than an average man from anywhere else. Okay. Rant on attractive men over; sorry for the tangent. Stay tuned for updates of said study in later posts. Back to my actual purpose of blogging about this walk..
I tried to capture all three of those things to show the simply beauty found just walking through the city. Enjoy!

Now for my semi creepy pictures of men I passed. There are probably some laws against this, but what they don't know can't hurt them, right? Since I had to be as sneaky as possible, these are not the highest of quality photos. My apologies. Pretend I did it on purpose to add to the mystery of them, and leave room for your own imagination and personal preferences when it comes to men in suits.
Those last two are my favorite. Best for last, right? I realize these photos don't seem to impressive and you are probably thinking: what is all the hype about men when these appear completely average?
It's the suits. Their suits and shoes are just on point.
Walking through the west end made me miss walking on campus for one reason: the Tanner Building. Going through there was always a pleasure. For those of you who don't know, that is the business school on campus where essentially all the guys are wearing dress clothes. That is what walking Legal London was like only on steroids. I only managed captured a tiny glimpse of that.
As you can see, there are many wonderful sights on a brisk fall day in the west end of London. How lucky am I that this is my city, if only for a little?
I wish fall could last forever; I dream of taking these buildings back to good old Utah so everyone can design their offices in this style; I fully intend to teach my boys the power of a good suit.
Love Always, Aimee
