An Ideal Setting...

A most ideal setting for a castle, don't you think...?

Black and White, Paris

Paris, 2012.

For Allison, on her 21st birthday. 
Someday, when you first visit Paris, I hope we're together so I can see you fall in love.  Paris will love you back, I just know it.

Our First Castle

Perched high above the city, Schloss Heidelberg was the first of many castles we visited in Germany.  With the earliest part of the castle being built before 1214, the castle has a fascinating history filled with destruction and renewal.  Walls of stone were worn yet rich with beauty, and each night as the sun set, they radiated a golden glow.

Germany, Our First Days

Bad Wimpfen, Germany (Top photo); all others Heidelberg, Germany (2012).

Although I shot these photographs in Spring, I think they provide this little blog a nice transition into Autumn.  My birthday is coming up in early October, and as a gift to myself I'm planning to (finally!) dive head first into photographs from our grand adventures in Germany, Austria, and France.

It's going to be a very happy week around here, and I look forward to sharing memories of our travels with you.  Wishing you a wonderful Sunday!

The Have-a-Nice-Day Diner


This charming little diner has become one of our favorite breakfast spots.  Pretty wonderful, right?
I hope that today you can do as the wise old diner says, and have a nice day.

More diner love here....
