one last post on Colorado before I move on to new topics

So this week has gotten a little crazier than I thought it was going to be.  I haven’t been home one night yet this week and won’t be home for the remainder.   With surprise visitors from out of town, free hockey tickets, the Lumineers concert and the arrival and snuggling of a new little, […]

Denver… continued

So here is another post filled with landscape photos and no people from my trip a few weeks ago to Denver.  Thank goodness I went when I did, because they had some crazy flooding over the last week that has wreaked havoc on some of the gorgeous places I saw.  Not sure where my head […]

Weekend Wanderings in Denver (Part II)- Red Rocks in the daylight

So I’m a little obsessed with Red Rocks!  If you couldn’t tell by the last post, I absolutely fell in love with this place.  Hands down best venue I’ve ever seen a live show in!  I was so wanting to go back during the day because I just knew that those rocks would be even […]

Weekend Wanderings in Denver (Part I)

I consider myself a very lucky girl to have been blessed with so many amazing friends in this lifetime of mine.   One of those amazing people is Neda.  She and I met on my very first day of classes at the University in Malaga back in October of 2005.   She was sitting two […]

August Long Weekend

Here are a few photos from my weekend away with the family in the Okanagan.  We seem to always end up there on the August long weekend and always have a good time.  It was a beautiful, rest filled, relaxing weekend and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.  The Okanagan is always a beautiful place to […]

From my bedroom window…

I missed throwback Thursday by a couple of days with this post… but I’m going with it, because well… I feel like it and isn’t that the point of having your own blog?!  Anyway, I wrote this little bit below back when I lived in Spain in 2005 and thought it might be fun to […]

wanderlust

Wanderlust:  a strong, innate desire to rove or travel about. I have always loved the word wanderlust… describes so perfectly how one feels when they are going through it. The craving for  travel, the desire to see foreign places, the joy of wandering  and discovering something new. Every once in a while, I get this extreme case of wanderlust. If you have never experienced […]

The Latin Quarter

To all of you Paris Voyageurs out there, here is a word of advice …  when you find something you really like at a small, random street market on your first day, don’t decide to come back another day.  BUY IT! dang it, BUY IT… because even though you spend the next day trying to […]

Montmartre

We found ourselves in Montmartre on our second day of our trip and then found ourselves back there on our very last day before we came home.  We loved the charm and the quaintness of this part of Paris.  Despite my thoughts of taking the funicular up to the top, we braved it both times […]

Wandering…

One of my very favourite things to do in a new city (or any city for that matter), is to wander.  Just get off the metro or walk out the door of your hotel and walk, and walk and walk, and see where the day takes you.  There is something so decadent in the freedom […]
