Where I’ve Been

Rome – Italy

Rome, where do I even begin? What can I say that hasn’t been said? Rome is just…incredible. It’s everything you expect it to be and everything you aren’t prepared for. At times I was Lindsay Lohan in an Italian version of Mean Girls and at others I was Lizzie McGuire throwing coins into the Trevi fountain. It was heart-stoppingly beautiful and full of history, yet fast-paced and alive with all the vitality¬†of a bustling, modern…

Romance in Siena

I feel obliged to preface this post with a few words. As some of you may know, we had originally planned a trip to Paris on November 13th, but were unable to proceed with our plans because of the unfortunate events that transpired that night in Paris. We were in the terminal at the airport here in Dallas, waiting to board the plane when it all happened. Within the hour they announced the borders were…

Broken Bow – Oklahoma

On Halloween weekend we opted out of the traditional festivities and rented a cabin in Broken Bow, Oklahoma with my boyfriend’s family. We’ve been there a couple of times before, and I was especially looking forward to our trip this year because it didn’t feel like fall yet in Texas; no fall colors, no cooler temps, no waterfalls of hot cocoa. Broken Bow, luckily, DID have all of those things and it was absolutely delightful….

La Casa De La Marquesa

I feel like there are two different kinds of places you can stay when you travel: one being a hotel or rental that is just a place to sleep and call home base, and two being a hotel or rental that is an experience in and of itself. La Casa de la Marquesa in Quer√©taro, Mexico, is by far and away the latter. I almost can’t quite put into words how astoundingly beautiful this place…

Tamarindo – Costa Rica

Although my trip to Costa Rica this time was shorter than I would’ve liked it to be, I had the opportunity to see parts of the country I (surprisingly) hadn’t seen before and OH MY GOD it was beautiful. It was apparent from the moment we were within miles of the beach why so many people from around the world travel to and often relocate to Costa Rica. Warm weather, a beautiful environment and welcoming…

Oklahoma!

I was fortunate enough to be asked to tag along on a long weekend trip to Oklahoma recently. Aside from getting some much-needed fresh air, it was nice to get the chance to exercise my nature pitcher-takin’ skills. Again, one of those moments where a wide-angle lens would really come in handy. Perhaps even a telephoto, as we saw some deer in a meadow (literally) and were too far away to get a good shot….

San Jose – Costa Rica

Finally the photos from my trip over the summer to Costa Rica! It took me a while to decide which ones to publish first so there will be several posts. I’m always looking for vintage inspiration in other photos and whenever I find a look I love, I try to replicate it. Lately, I’ve been on a huge vintage binge and these have been my latest experiments. The vintage style has even made a presence…
