Thank’s, Obama, for the snow day!

It’s March. By this point, even this winter-obsessed girl has begun to tire of the cold. However, I will always say YES to a snow day! I woke up this morning at 5:30am to an alert that school and work were canceled. Maybe I was too excited by the prospect of a definite snow day, but I couldn’t…

Into the Winter

One if by land, two if by sea…is it three if by air? My last few weeks of winter freedom (before the insanity of work and grad school recommences) were spent in Boston, a winter wonderland if there ever was one. While many of my friends and colleagues were escaping to Florida and California to soak…

Calm and Bright

I live on quite a busy street: cars and trucks rumble by at all hours. They’re my alarm clocks, really. When the horns and engines reach a certain magnitude, it means it’s time to get up and start the day. However, this morning it was curiously calm and quiet. As the minutes ticked by, I figured…

Coffee and Kayaking: A Trip to Sweden

Musing and reflection may soon follow, but for now, simply some photos from my week spent drinking coffee, learning Swedish, kayaking in the archipelago, exploring Stockholm and Uppsala, and generally having a fabulous time in Sweden.

She Loves Paris, Yoga, and the Sun

Although on this side of the pond the winter has really been quite mild, the first sunny weekend of the year still feels like heaven on earth. After a winter of gray, the first beams of sunlight always seem like gifts from the gods, don’t they!? Adding to the glory of a weekend of lovely…

Il était une fois Noël…

And after a good long break…we’re back! Enjoy some photos from the past month: the nice-effort Christmas lights of Troyes; the stunning decorations of Strasbourg, France’s Christmas markets; a brief jaunt into Germany; Christmas holidays with the family; and some other extra tidbits!

Holiday Cheer

A little vin chaud, some Christmas songs to sing along to, and plates full of cookies to decorate (and eat!) make the gray Troyes weather much more bearable.

A Nomad’s Thanksgiving

I have not spent a Thanksgiving in the United States since 2009. C’est fou, hein! That’s totally crazy! Even crazier: in the last eight years, I don’t think I’ve had any two Thanksgivings in the same city. Just another example of this nomadic life I lead. This past weekend, I celebrated a belated Thanksgiving at…

Out & About in Troyes

More of me pretending to be a fabulous photographer. Out and around in Troyes in the autumn.
