Mornings Away: V E N I C E, Italy

December 6, 2016 § Leave a comment

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetVenice has an astonishing palette: pastels mixed with blues mixed with grays. I visited in the cold spring, and I’m now turning to those colors to get me through the cold winter (it is coming, I can feel it).

Looking back, I realize that I only posted photos from Murano & Burano, and Caffè Florian. I left out Venice’s best part: the water. The sinking buildings. The bright, bright blue.

If you’re looking for ways to spend a morning in the city, consider visiting the Elizabeth Street Garden tucked in Nolita. It is the perfect oasis between shopping and brunching.  Bring a blanket and spend an hour reading (conveniently located near McNally Johnson, if you’re empty handed) underneath a trees or quickly stroll through the .46 acres of green space if you’re pressed for time.

New York City parks and gardens are magical in the summer, but it’s little ones like these that make turning a corner on a crowded neighborhood incredibly rewarding.

The garden offers various events throughout the week and weekend, which you can read about here.  Unfortunately, housing construction plans are a threat, but by signing this letter and spreading the news you can make a difference.

What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday morning? Any favorite parks? Let me know.

Now get out there! It’s summer.

Wizarding World

May 4, 2015 § 1 Comment

Harry Potter readers are the luckiest readers in existence- who else gets to travel into the world of their favorite stories so vividly? It’s a dream. When we celebrated my grandmother’s birthday, we also took her to Universal Studios to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. She’s been a loyal fan since J.K. Rowling published the first book. So it was pretty cute and super special.  My aunt (also a HP lover) came with and it was, as you’d expect, like magic.

More Prague

February 9, 2015 § 5 Comments

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetI’m still day dreaming about Prague mornings. Everything should start with pastel streets and sculptures (even if the ones on the Charles Bridge are actually just really old replicas) and wool coats. We don’t have an excess of pretty winter wear in SC, and I’d rather not make any other compasrisons between Prague and the faux-rural mostly suburban city I live in.
Let’s just say I was happy. « Read the rest of this entry »

Went a little crazy with the Canon in Prague, so I’m still editing and processing photos. In the meantime… Here are some of my favorite facades.

Edinburgh

November 13, 2014 § Leave a comment

Unsure if anyone in Edinburgh actually lives there. The city is built on the grounds of natural disaster. It’s gorgeous. You can’t really blame it for being full of tourists. The architecture, the lights, that park, a castle, the leaves in November. These are all good, justifiable things drawing everybody in. Too many people wearing cameras (including me, let’s be real) but too many pretty things to look at. Balance, maybe. And many, many uphill steps.

Pt. II

November 12, 2014 § Leave a comment

“London returns in damp, fragmented/ flurries/ when I should be doing something else.” From Chelsea Rathburn’s poem English Sonnet. Fitting to say the least.  Here’s a handful of images. Here’s a city I liked.
