Welcoming fall

Like almost every season this year, fall has crept upon me rather unnoticed. But I can't really say that I'm sorry to see the summer go. Between the insane workload I've "enjoyed" for the past few weeks, family issues that have been piling up like dirty laundry and a rather unnecessary amount of drama in all the areas of my life, I feel more than ready to leave summer months behind and kick off my second favorite season (the first being spring, of course) with a bang. 

I'm planning to fully embrace this autumn with all that it has to offer, and simply looking at these colorful pictures makes me excited, hopeful and optimistic about what is to come. There are many things I'm hoping to enjoy, accomplish and experience in the upcoming months, and I'm looking forward to sharing some of them with you here on the blog. Stay tuned, and until then, happy first day of fall!

Real talk: Paris bound

It is really hard to believe that it's been already a week since my brother got married. In my mind's eye, the wedding is still a happy blur of twirling on the dancefloor, meeting our new extended family, spending a wonderful time with some of the funniest, kindest and most gentlemanly guys I've ever met, and generally having an incredible amount of fun. The best proof? I took almost no photos at all! My camera was left in my hotel room, and my phone laid forgotten in my purse the whole time, and I can honestly say that not once did I think of checking it, or my emails, or any of the social media, for that matter. Pure bliss. Seeing my brother so happy was the best part of the entire weekend, and I know I'll be cherishing those moments and memories forever. Now, if only the wedding photographer would hurry up - I'm beyond excited to dedicate one entire photo album to that wonderful weekend!

Of course, the Monday morning reality check pretty much kicked my butt, and this past week has been a whirlwind of catching up on the work emails, advancing a few of our current projects and trying to do as much as I could before my departure for Paris. That's true: I'm leaving for my second home / favorite city in the world this afternoon, and to say that I'm beyond excited would be a massive understatement. I can hardly wait for my plane to land at the CDG airport! The prospect of shutting down my computer and ignoring my work emails & Facebook for a week pretty much sums up my current idea of heaven. I'm even leaving my iPad behind - I'm that serious about going internet-free for a week! I know I'm probably going to regret this decision next Monday, when I'll be back in the office, but for now, a week away from everything is exactly what I need.

I'm signing off with a few of the pictures I took in the City of Lights over the past few years, and I'm looking forward to seeing you back here next week. Until then, bonne semaine & bisous!

Oh, and I'll most definitely be bringing a box of these beauties with me back home! Can't wait!
