TRAVEL // PARIS part I

 

By the end of this last year I was ready to throw off 2013 and move full speed ahead into 2014 (and a new decade of my life) in a big way, with something inspiring and beautiful. Paris came to mind. So my friend Angel and I booked tickets and spent a week making every moment count.

Our experience was almost quite perfect. From the weather, to the people and our daily adventures–it was truly magnificent. Some of my favorite moments included visiting Montmartre for the first time, touring the Palace of Versailles, sifting for treasures at the flea market, and getting to meet up with a photographer friend I connected with via Instagram. Angel and I discovered we make excellent traveling pals, we both wanted to do and see everything, including stops for food, wine and coffee a few times each day. It was great to experience this city once again alongside a beloved friend. If you’ve never been to Paris, I would say it is a must see. The French are so proud of their country and their culture, it inspired me to view my own city in the same light. I cannot wait to return to Paris, hopefully one day sooner than later.

“There is never any ending to Paris and the memory of each person who has lived in it differs from that of any other. We always returned to it no matter who we were or how it was changed or with what difficulties, or ease, it could be reached. Paris was always worth it and you received return for whatever you brought to it.” –Ernest Hemingway

FAVORITES OF 2013

It is hard to believe that another year is coming to a close. This year was full of growth, change, beauty and certainly some challenges. But as I look back over the past twelve months I can only be thankful for another year filled with wonderful clients, some life changing adventures and the chance to do it all again next year. Thank you for your love and support in 2013! Cheers to whatever 2014 has to offer. Merry Christmas + Happy New Year!

Here are a few of my personal favorite images from the year.
