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 […]

New Friends, Old Friends, Family

On Saturday , after a long awaited ten years, I finally got to meet Riku for the first time!  I have known his family my whole life (since before I can remember, literally!), but Riku has moved about over the years and we are always seeming to miss each other.  It sure didn’t feel like […]

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 […]

Sweet Scarlet

A couple of weekends ago, this amazing group of ladies named Sweet Scarlet  sang at the Kerrisdale Farmer’s Market.  It was a beautiful sunny day and as the ladies sang under a big, beautiful, shady tree, people stopped and gathered to hear their sweet voices as they rang out across the market. Those sweet melodies […]

The Beginning of Something New…

I first met Anita about 5 years ago at a party my old roommate and I were hosting. She and I  hit it off right away and have stayed in touch, in one way or another, ever since.  She is truly one of the nicest, most genuine people I have ever met. I remember, on […]

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 […]
