But the only simple answer is that the two things that make me happiest are my loved ones and traveling. And I am so, so happy to be flying to London to attend my dear friend's wedding. This is my dream.
In addition to seeing my friend for this special occasion, I will indulge in all of the things I've missed while living in China; brunch? Hell yes. Good bakeries? Give me all of the sweets. Hearty, fattening food? I need to gain weight anyway. And I will re-acquaint myself with the culture that I've missed since I was last in Europe.
