PARIS – PART 2

11/09/2017

Bonjour friends! Picking up where I left off last week, here is part 2 of my Paris trip. Looking through my photos reminds me of what a dream the trip really was.

Since it was my first time in the city of lights, I spent some time checking out two of Paris’ museums, the Louvre and Musée d’Orsay. I took the advice from friends and purchased the Paris Museum Pass Read More..

PARIS – PART 1

11/01/2017

Bonjour! It’s been a long time my friends. I posted about going to Paris back in January, I can’t believe that was 11 months ago. One of my dreams did come true and I went to Paris back in April. It was so beautiful and perfect, that I am already daydreaming of going back. I did the usual sightseeing that anyone new to Paris would do. Check out my photo diary below of a few of the places I visited.   

I stayed in the 6th arrondissement of Paris. The apartment I rented was two blocks away from one of Paris’ beautiful parks, the Jardin du Luxembourg. With it being so close, many mornings I would grab a croissant and espresso—as the locals say, “un café-croissant”—from La Parisienne and take a stroll through the Jardin du Luxembourg. Read More..

Going to Paris

01/20/2017

Hola friends! One of my dreams has come true! I’m going to Paris. I will be traveling there this spring. The trip is still coming to life, but so far I fly into Paris and fly out of Copenhagen. I’m really looking forward to walking around the streets of Paris and living like a Parisian for a few days. I’m also excited to revisit Copenhagen, this time, during the spring. I have time during my trip to stop in one other city, I’m leaning towards Amsterdam. I would love to hear your recommendations for any of these cities!

Big Sur – Part 1

06/15/2016

Hi friends and welcome new ones. Today’s post is about my recent trip to Big Sur. Big Sur is on the central coast of California and spans from San Simeon to Carmel. California’s winding Highway Route 1 cuts through this beautiful terrain. The seaside cliffs and misty atmosphere make this place magical. I was there for 3 days and 2 nights and stayed at the lovely Fernwood Resort. Having Fernwood as my base camp, I was able to explore some nearby hiking trails. I went to McWay Falls and Partington Cove. McWay Falls is one of the most photographed and recognizable landscapes in Big Sur; I was excited to see it in person. The day I visited was overcast, but the views were still breathtaking, it was very ethereal. Read More..

Olive Wreath

05/25/2016

Hola amigos. It feels good to be back and posting here for you! I recently did this fun project for eHow — How to Make an Olive Wreath. I love this project because it’s simple and beautiful. Two of my favorite things in a DIY project. I hope you have fun making this pretty wreath. I have mine hung out on my front door, but it will look good just about anywhere. Where do you plan to put yours? hero_v3a Read More..
