You guys have probably seen that I’ve been dabbling in film lately. Just a little bit here and there. So when I was planning our trip to Charleston, I was wrestling with the decision of whether to use my film or digital camera on the trip. I was hesitant to use the film camera since I had just started shooting film and I didn’t want to come back from the trip with no decent pictures! But you gotta learn somehow, so I shot the whole trip on film!
Last year, we went on a family trip to NYC with my family. This was Branden’s first time to the city and honestly, he wasn’t that excited. He’s not really a big city guy and hates shoulder to shoulder crowds. But as we returned home from that trip, Branden was already making plans for how we could live there one day! This magical city stole both our hearts so we knew we had to get back there ASAP!
Last week Branden and I got out of dodge for a quick, but much needed little winter Caribbean getaway! Branden only gets 3 weeks off a year and they are pre-assigned at the beginning of the year. So when we saw that he a week off in the dead of winter, we decided we didn’t just wanted sit on our frozen butts at home and that we needed to go somewhere warm. So we booked a little 4-night cruise to the Caribbean!
Being able to serve as a Rising Tide Society leader for the past year and a half has truly been such an honor. Being able to foster a local community of like-minded creative entrepreneurs that continues to grow and grow each month is just so humbling! Watching these local small business owners pour into each other each month and create some really amazing relationships and friendships along the way is more than I could have ever hoped for when I set out to create our local Hampton Roads Tuesdays Together community back in 2015.
It’s the last stop on our European vacay!! Even though this amazing trip ended months ago, it feels now it is really ending! Boo! But we are wrapping up our 2-week getaway in Europe with a night in Barcelona!! This was definitely a city that we were really excited to explore and had heard so many great things about! We had such a great time getting lost in the streets and alleys of this lively city!
I wish I were cool enough to live in Aix En Provence, or even just be a frequent visitor! This little town in France is just so posh and adorable! From the lively trendy outdoor market on the main drag to the quaint little pedestrian streets lined with buildings all boasting the most picturesque french balconies, I was in heaven! Such a shame that we only got be there for a few hours! This quintessential French town is very high on our list of places to come back to one day!
