it seems as though i’ve been gone forever, but i have at long last returned from my european travels and cannot wait to share all i’ve seen and been inspired by! there’s just so much to tell you about: a new business endeavor i hope you are going to go a little bit bananas for (i am over the moon excited to share what’s up and will do so very soon!); my travels and must-sees in france — from lyon, avignon and Marseilles and onto paris, i’ve got quite a few gems to tell you about; and then finally my lovely week in london — what shops to bop, and what bites to eat — there are loads to see and do and i’ll be sharing a few city guides soon (so many photos to edit!).

one of the glorious parts of my visit across the pond was that spring had sprung, and all over France the cherry blossoms were bursting forth and in London daffodils perked up every park. from columbia road market to many paris merchants’ flower stands — kiosks everywhere overflowed with fresh picks and streets gleamed just a little brighter. here’s just a sneak peek. it’s good to be home, and just like spring, i’m rejuvenated and ready to go!
