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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Walk in Villiers Sur Marne

During our week in Paris we stayed with some dear friends of S in a little ville outside of Paris called Villiers sur Marne.    It was a lovely little town full of lots of character and old buildings, cobblestone streets and ivy clad structures.   I loved wandering around this little town capturing its […]

Paris, lately… according to my Iphone

Because its Sunday and because its just too hard not to share, here is the second post for the day.  My iphone loved Paris as much as I did!  and here are most of the pictures I took on it for your viewing pleasure.  There were A LOT more… but here are the best ones! […]

A Little #TBT for You!

So in honour of it being Thursday and also because I am just really  missing the warm breezy weather of island life, I am posting a little throwback Thursday up here on the blog.  These are some photos I have been meaning to post since NOVEMBER and kept forgetting about. So here you go…. can’t […]
