Not sure how up to speed you are on the global news but last Sunday, the 22, marked the hottest London Marathon on record.
On top of this incredibly exciting experience, London made the news for two other noteworthy occurrences. The first, was that Queen Elizabeth's beloved dog, Willow was laid to rest. The 14 year old pooch was the last in a line of royal corgis owned by the queen and finally succumbed to a losing battle with cancer.
The second, in an inadvertently symbolic situation, was that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Prince William and Kate Middleton) welcomed their newest baby son! The new baby's name is Louis Arthur Charles and he's fifth in line to the throne (sorry, Harry).
I can't help but smile at the circle of life so beautifully captured by these occurrences—a death followed by a birth—but the synchronicity hasn't been lost on me.
Til' next time, congrats to the royal family.
