29 Years Worth Celebrating

My mother and father are your classic sentimental parents. Every year on my birthday they tell the same stories, without fail. My dad will show me old pictures (you know, ones I hate but he treasures) & laugh as he tells stories about the silly pranks he used to pull on me. My mom will wax poetic about the floral wallpaper that lined every inch...

London in an Instant

Author: Cory I think we're ready to just pick up & move to London. Granted this was only our second trip there, but sometimes that's all it takes to know. I knew that I wanted to be with Jade for the rest of my life first time I saw her. I know it sounds like a cheesy, romantic thing to say, but it's absolutely true. Every...

Coffee in New York

Author: Cory Our trip to New York was a whirlwind. We knew it was going to happen for a long time, but when you work with other entities that are responsible for scheduling and planning, sometimes things can happen last minute. Everything came together as it needed however and before we knew it we were on a plane. Jade has been to New York in the...

Walk

“I walk to think and not to think. When walking I remember things that are important to me. I walk to forget. I have yet to set out on a walk in low spirits and return feeling worse than I did when I left the door. A change occurs between the fate and the porch, walking lifts the weight off the heart. Or as the writer...

Inside The Tuileries, Outside The Louvre

Just as the sun was starting to set, we finished our walk along the Seine and made it to The Tuileries just before the closed. And by just before they closed, I mean we walked in and not three minutes later, whistles were blown and officers asked people to clear out. As our day in Paris came to a close, we couldn't resist wandering by...

An Evening Stroll Along the Seine

After our beautiful picnic, we decided to take a walk along the Seine back to the W Paris – Opera. Since our time in Paris was so limited, we decided to savor every moment we could and figured that taking a long walk along the Seine would be the perfect remedy. The sky really had a show for us.    ...

Télescope Café

Télescope Café was first brought to our attention through Alice's post. That lovely lady knows about coffee so we were thrilled to find out that Télescope was only a few minutes walk from where we were staying. Our only regret is that we only had one morning to enjoy Télescope's delicious coffee and croissants...

A Morning Stroll Through Paris

I'd be remiss if I didn't say a special thank you to Xtabay Vintage for lending me the most incredible little, black dress to traipse around the streets of Paris in....

The W Paris – Opera & Dinner at Arola

We arrived in Paris from London at the Paris Gare du Nord railway station. It was a little frazzling getting off the train and and walking through a sea of tired, aggressive travelers to transfer our pounds into euros (which obviously we should have just done before we left). I had to go around a corner while Jade was with our bags and when I came...
