Shakespeare & Company

I did not know of this place prior. Shakespeare & Company, a bookstore that is tucked away in Paris, France. It was a place where the great writers used to all meet, read, and write. Hemingway and Whitman, just to namedrop a couple. Outside there were quotes written on the shutters of the store and... Continue Reading →

Welcome to Paris

The whole waiting game at the airport was so suspenseful. I read articles for work and then started a short read I planned to finish in transit. I was so excited to just make it to where I was headed. It was more than a destination, it was going to be a pivotal moment in... Continue Reading →

Brussels Bound

Sitting on another train ride heading to my next destination, I can't help but reflect on how Paris and Versailles have added to my life. I have been so impacted by these experiences had thus far. I can't help but wonder how Brussels will also impact me in a positive manner. While I am scared... Continue Reading →

Paris Bound

I CAN'T BELIEVE THE TIME IS HERE. I leave in two days for Paris. I have never been out of North America and can not wait to see Europe.  However, that excitement that I know is there is being stifled by fear.  What a nuisance! While fear does have some benefits, I find that it... Continue Reading →

It is surreal and I realize how little I have actually done in preparation for this solo excursion. I am excited and so flippin' nervous.  What was meant to... Continue Reading →

Abby. The Baddest Bitch I Know.

Ever watch Gossip Girl? Then you know Blair Waldorf. She is the kind of best friend you want as your friend and NOT as your enemy. She is the most loyal and kind-hearted person ever, but start a war with her, and you might as well just surrender- less bloodshed. Abby is that person. She... Continue Reading →

Fernanda’s Introduction

I think it is very important for me to introduce a couple of my friends that I most certainly be sharing scandalous stories of on our Paris-Eurotrip. Fernanda is a special kind of person and is most definitely a unicorn. It is very hard to appropriately describe Fernanda with words. If you have the pleasure... Continue Reading →

Heart-Shaped Sungasses

Life is what you make it, seriously! I hated always hearing that as it frustrated me deeply to hear something put so simply, yet so complicated. I see this phrase best when describing it with a sunglass metaphor. How you see the world depends on how you process the world, like a filter on your... Continue Reading →
