It seems like the year has flown by. SO much has happened this year including many travel adventures. I still have a lot more to update you with other blog posts but the Holiday Season has popped up so there are a few things to tell you about.
First I will be at the One of A Kind Show in Chicago this December 4-7. I will have the same booth 2068 under RL Photography so please stop by and say hello. I will have lots of new work from Paris/Italy. If you need a ticket click here
Second: As a Holiday promotion I am offering 20% in the etsy shop until December 1st at Midnight. Prices are already reduced to reflect the discount. To do a little something different this year I am offering a $20 gift certificate if you spend $100. The gift certificate will be valid until January 31st, 2015.
Sending you lots of love this holiday season! xo
My time is Europe is always nonstop. Its a challenge to stop as much as it is in the States. Don’t get me wrong I have had uninterrupted chats with friends over coffee, lunch, glasses of wine the last couple of weeks. Its nice not being completely attached to my iPhone or other electronic devices.
I left my computer back in Paris and my cell phone didn’t have an Italian SIM card so I was catching email when I could walking through the streets of Rome or back at my airbnb apartment.
Paris has been a comfort for me the last few years. I know how to zip around the city by foot or metro and my french is improving. The city feels like a second home more than anything. Italy was my first love and will always be. Its where I first studied abroad and was bit by the travel bug 11 years ago but being back in Italy felt foreign. My first couple of trips to Rome I did not like the city at all. It was filled with graffiti, pick pockets, and lets be honest it wasn’t Florence. Although in the last couple of years it has been calling me back. It took a while but I am glad I decided to go back and give it another go.
To be perfectly honest I arrived on a sunny 80 degree October day in Rome. Palm trees lined the streets with packed cafes serving pasta and cappuccinos on every corner. What’s not to love? I grabbed a chair at the closest busy cafe pulled out a map and a menu and was set to explore.
To be continued…
One of my favorite places in Paris is no doubt my balcony. When looking at apartments it was what sold me on the space. The rest of the apartment is plain but the balcony is heaven! I love opening the doors in the morning and eating on the balcony. Tonight the rain was falling as the sun was setting. I never want to forget this!
