By far the best thing blogging has brought me over the past few years is my incredible group of friends. Many of these started as individual friendships, but more and more have them have come together over the past two years to form what we first jokingly referred to and then embraced as Coven Morgana. We don't practice witchcraft but support one another, provide morale, and share positivity, aesthetic, and cake recipes. It's brilliant and international, and while most of us live in different places, from the West Coast of the States to Western Europe, some of us still manage to meet up in England from time to time.
We were lucky enough to have such a meeting with Amy, Abby, and Amy V. Norris when A and I were in London a few weeks ago. We went to the British Library, to the Wallace Collection, had coffee and cake, and stocked up on books at my favorite Persephone Books. And then we went to the V&A and ended up drinking a bottle of wine in the café instead of browsing the Undressed exhibition. As you do when an international aesthetic coven meets up in London.
It was an altogether amazing day, and I look forward to the day every one of us can meet up and have fun together.
