Artifacts Uprising – Autumn In Paris Book


A few months back I learned about the book maker Artifacts Uprising through pinterest of course 🙂 I couldn’t wait to try them out. My first book is an 8 1/2 x 8 1/2″ book. The reason why I loved this amongst all the other book makers was their format, style, and simplicity. The books are just absolutely beautiful! I shared my book with my family last night and they felt like they were right there with me. I hope you enjoy a sneak preview. I will be making many more books with Artifacts Uprising soon! They also have an app for your phone to make a book from your instagram photos. What’s not to love?!

First stop in Paris?


I leave for Paris a week from today which means I am packing and getting organized. Camera, lenses, warm clothes ect.. I have been living out of a suitcase for over a year. I am ready for my next adventure. Paris has been a second home for me over the last year and I can’t wait to be back. I have a few places to visit right away that will make me feel like home and of course I can’t wait to see my friends. But first thing I will need a baguette and a cafe creme. You can follow my daily adventures on Instagram If you would like me to visit any favorite places I would love to hear them. Thank you for those who have already sent some my way 🙂

Sun Kissed Pont Alexandre iii


There are so many bridges in Paris but the Pont Alexandre iii is my favorite. It is stunning in all light and then there are the lanterns. If you get the chance to watch the sunset walk close to the pont alexandre iii. You can even sit on the Seine and watch the sunset. The lanterns will start to glow because of the sun setting. They don’t turn on until later but its a very cool effect if you watch for it. Now available in my etsy shop

New Paris neighborhood


New year, new neighborhood. My trip to Paris is just days away and I am looking forward to exploring new streets. I only spent a little time in the 5th last year but here is what will be in my backyard. Not too bad with a garden in your backyard!

Almost Paris time


Two weeks from today I will be waking up in Paris. I really can’t wait. I am making a list of everything I want to do. I am looking forward to exploring my new neighborhood in the 5th arrondisement. If anyone has any favorite boulangeries, cafes, or places to explore I would love to know them.
