Shannon & Derek Charlottesville Virginia
Paris Day 2

The second day in Paris we woke up slightly more accustomed to the time change and ready to really dive headfirst into the Parisian scene. The sun came out and things just seemed bigger and brighter and ready for us. Our first stop of the day was the louvre and it was also our first experience on the Paris metro. As someone who gets so lost on the DC metro that strangers stop to ask me if I need directions I can tell you it was insanely easy and made us feel like true Parisians. We were meeting up with my friend Christa and her husband Nathan who moved to Germany a couple years back. They took a bus in that morning and we were able to spend the day with them having breakfast and walking around!

Jenn & Jon Washington DC Wedding

I love/hate relationship with Washington DC. As a northern Virginian, the traffic in and out of the city can be (and usually is) complete misery. But DC has a vibrancy and liveliness that you can't get in any other city around the world.

Paris - Day 1

Because how often do friends Parisian adventures overlap with each other? When I saw Krysta a few days prior to our trip for Julies wreath making workshop and late night drinks, we ended it with a "see you in Europe!"
