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 […]

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 […]

Une nuit a Paris

Our first outing in Paris was at night and what an incredible way to see the city.  Paris by night is so magical and my pictures don’t even give it a fraction of the justice it deserves.  It was, in a word… enchanting.  The city is completely lit up, including a sparkling light show at […]

Marché aux Fleurs de Paris

The Flower Market, located in the fourth arrondissement of Paris on the Île de la Cité, is just blocks from the famous Notre Dame.  It is a serene oasis tucked away in the bustling city of Paris.  On the day  we found ourselves wandering through this gorgeous market, there wasn’t another tourist in sight.  I […]

Weekend Wanderings

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a proper post and for this I beg your forgiveness. It seems like I arrive home at the end of each day and words just fail me, so I flop into sweats and onto the couch and turn my brain officially off for the night.  That and ever […]

A Birthday Eve Walk

    I meant to get this post up last week, but got very sick Monday night and have been recovering ever since.   The Friday before my birthday I had an extra day off work, and since it was dry outside, M and I ventured out for coffee and a walk.  I’m so glad […]

lazy sundays

What is it about lazy, rainy sundays that tug at your heartstrings?? Those extra moments of sweet bliss snuggled up in your bed. The sound of the rain on the rooftop creating a sort of lullaby. The promise of cozy coffee shops and a good book. The absence of a schedule is such decadence. Sundays […]
