Distance makes the heart grow fonder.

Although long distance relationships are difficult at times & have their ups and downs, the ups definitely make the downs easier to deal with. My boy and I visited Salisbury for a long weekend and it was beautiful. It's such a pretty little city; it's like a little York which is one of my absolute favourite places. ♥
We stayed at the Mercure White Hart Hotel which was beautiful, I'd definitely recommend staying there if you're planning a visit to Salisbury. This was our room, (excuse the mess!) & we could even see the very top the Cathedral from our window. Lovely!

We spent our days wandering around the shops, generally being tourists & having a few drinks in our new favourite pub! I popped into the Neal's Yard shop and was really overwhelmed but I did look at the products that had caught my eye on the website and I have since made an online order which should be arriving soon! I much prefer shopping online, it gives me a chance to properly research a product and you get a parcel to open which is always a good thing!

Our favourite part of the trip was visiting Salisbury Cathedral and blimey, that is one beautiful piece of architecture!

The smell of food escaping from the restaurant there was far too difficult to resist so we popped in and saw that the cafe makes the most of the beautiful architecture with a glass ceiling. Yummy food with a lovely view - perfect!
cathedral In the cafe I saw a stand full of the most beautiful looking cupcakes I've ever seen and I just had to have one. It would have been rude not to, right?! I can assure you that it absolutely did taste as good as it looked!
We spent the last few days of his visit at my house and just generally being lazy at the beach. We've had far too many portions of salt & vinegar soaked chips but they were so good so that makes it alright in my book!
I miss him now so so much, but we have some wonderful memories to add to our collection! I don't know when we'll get to be together properly but I do know that it will happen for us eventually. ♥
