Remember the days when you were young and you had a summer vacation? Time scheduled in the year where you didn’t have to go to school and you could sleep in and stay up late with your friends? I miss those days as an adult! I would say more so now that I run my own business because its hard to schedule a day off. On my recent trip to California I made sure to schedule in a day of freedom. One day of summer vacation… I attempted to sleep in and then hit the beach. I sat in the sand while enjoying my lunch (lobster tacos) yum! Before long it was time to pack up and head back to Chicago.
What are your plans for Summer Vacation? Even if its just a day make sure to schedule one before the weather turns. I am glad I did!
Aix en Provence is a quick train ride from Marseille, France. It is a beautiful small town with markets selling linens and fountains everywhere. I loved this quiet street I found while getting lost in this Romantic town. If you are close by put it on your list to visit! Go early so you can visit the many markets and grab lunch in the main square. It won’t disappoint!
The French Riviera is filled with winding roads and romantic balconies. There is so much I love about this photograph the warm peachy color and the mint green shutters. I also love that top window that is open with the white drape. A cool summer breeze comes to mind. What strikes you the most in this photograph?
There are so many amazing views of Paris. My first trip to Paris I tried to get as many rooftop views from all parts of the city. This happened to be from my last trip which I discovered while editing. Its a unique view from the top of Galleries Lafayette looking at the Paris Opera house (mint green rooftop) all the way to the Louvre Ferris Wheel. Get lost in the photograph and enjoy Paris!
