A love poem. To my beautiful United Kingdom. #iloveyoUK

Growing up, foreign holidays were for the posh family next door. Us? We went camping. In Norfolk. And Cornwall, the Peaks, the New Forest, Somerset, the Lakes… And honestly? It was great. I never felt I was missing out – holidays were always… well, a holiday! When we were first married, we had pretty much zero disposable income – but we had a tent, and we continued to explore year after year. Then just as we...
