As we come full circle

Well, hello. It’s been quite a while since I was here last–about 15 months, actually. That break was a bit longer than I had intended… oops! One of the hardest things about getting back to blogging after such a long hiatus is, of course, there is so much to catch up on. But never mind, […]

How have you all been doing these last SIX weeks?!

Gosh, I can’t believe it’s been six weeks since I last posted here. I’ve really missed you all! I am finally getting the hang of things with my online school. Plus we’re finally done with some of the harder things in music business like contracts and copyrights. I won’t say I know all of that stuff intimately, […]

Portugal: Sintra

I don’t have a lot of photos from Sintra. It poured the ENTIRE time we were there and after a while, I gave up trying to keep my camera dry. But trust me, you want to go! The entire town is a UNESCO World Heritage site–well deserved. If you’re visiting Sintra as a day trip […]

Portugal: Strolling through Lisbon

When we booked our Portugal trip at the beginning of January for mid-February travel, I had visions of basking in sparkling, warm, Spring-like days and enjoying a lovely coffee and a delicious Portuguese pastry in an outdoor cafe. In other words, we were going to steal away to what I imagined to be sun-soaked Portugal to ward […]

We definitely want to go back and have a girl day (shopping and lunch). This photo from my Wordless Wednesday post this week was taken in the Camden food […]

St Mary’s Church in Guildford, England

I was in Guildford over the weekend (hello shopping, LOL!) and came across this old church: St. Mary’s, the oldest church and oldest building in town. The tower is from Saxon times (about 1050). Here’s a little more information if you’re interested. Also, if you’re a fan of Lewis Carroll (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland), you’ll […]

Italy: Florence

Let me just say this upfront and honestly: I was not prepared for the number of tourists in Florence (of which I was one, I know, I know…). And because I wasn’t expecting them, the stalls in the San Lorenzo Market were like a slap in the face, and I am sorry to say it […]

Italy: Lucca (ti amo)

Lucca was a charming surprise! Located in Tuscany, this little town is surrounded by thick walls from the Renaissance era. Rick Steves listed Lucca and Pisa together in his Italy book, which I have to admit was the only reason we went. I am so glad we did, though. Lucca is a town with heart. […]
