paris, france {part one}

If you’ve followed along with me (in any capacity), you’re well aware that I recently spent over 2 weeks in Europe. It was, after all, just about the only thing I could think about for months.

Euro Trip : Copenhagen, Denmark

Warning: this is a long one. I just got back from my first trip to Europe – and my first time out of the country since I moved back to it at almost 8 years old (military brat living in Japan). That in itself was astonishing to me and made me realize just how much […]
