Spring is in the Air – Camping Time

I absolutely love camping, and as soon as the weather turns enjoyable, it’s one of the first things I think about. Now, I’m not a hardcore camper. I would be open to a backpacking trip, but the opportunity hasn’t been offered to me yet in a way that seems manageable. I car camp (drive to […] Read more…

Was I really in Paris for three months?

News Flash: I’m back in Philadelphia! Okay, yes, I returned June 30th, so I’ve been here forever now. I don’t really know where the time has gone or whether or not my three months in Paris is even real. It feels like a distant memory. However, if I really squint hard enough, I can remember that […] Read more…

Chel and Jenn: I could walk 500 miles

These are all very late! Jenn left on June 10th. But the end of my trip here has been packed full of people, site seeing, and adventure, so it’s been difficult to keep up with the blog. That being said, here are some of the best photos from my time with Chelsea and Jenn. From […] Read more…

Make New Friends, But Keep the Old Ones

When I was 8, I was a brownie (Girl Scouts brownie). I hated it, but I learned a few good songs, enjoyed the camping, and met Jenn, so overall it was a positive thing. One song that I learned goes like this: Make new friends, but keep the old ones. One is silver, and the […] Read more…

Brum and Brownhills

This past weekend, I made the trek over to the United Kingdom to visit Tony (our head designer at Medialoot). I got to check out his digs, his pup, and the second biggest city in the country (aka Birmingham or Brum). It was a ton of fun, and it was really nice to catch up […] Read more…

Beautiful cemetery. Me and my camera were very happy. Here’s about half of the photos. I also met a bunch of cool new people through the Meet Up group that organized this tour. Overall another great Sunday photography walk… Read more…

Meeting People

I’ve spent a lot of time lately trying to meet people. Paris is gorgeous, but it doesn’t talk to you, and it most certainly doesn’t hug you back! Friday, I treated myself to the theatre. But not just any theatre… La Comédie-Française! I saw Shakespeare’s Le Songe d’une nuit d’été (Midsummer Night’s Dream). It was […] Read more…

Jardin des Tuileries et La Madeleine

Today, I brought out my big-girl camera and took photos. I had a late lunch at a cafe inside the Tuileries and walked all around the garden and then north until I realized I was close to the Madeleine and could check that out while I was nearby. There are a ton of subjects I […] Read more…
