nostalgia + honeymoonin'.


I miss Paris, and I'm not gonna try to cover it up! I miss it. I miss it. I miss it. Even though I laughed too loud, ate too much and wore heinously American flip-flops...Paris and I were one in spirit. A spirit that delights in romance and frills. Breathtaking vistas. Candlelight. Old world charm.

I've not shared many Paris photos...mostly because I'm overwhelmed by the number of them I have to sift through. But, this was one of my favorite moments...the engagement night lull, just moments after we finished calling family + friends. The sun had set, and we ordered room service on our terrace. In that moment, it was just us in Paris. Just us, a sparkling tower and my glittering ring finger. My heart will treasure that night until time ends.

And on the topic of travel...we decided where we'll honeymoon!  Our choice wasn't a difficult one...mere weeks after we met face-to-face last August, we'd already agreed on a honeymoon location. (Why follow the expected marriage discussion timeline? Boring.) The place was right at the top of both of our lists, and yet neither one of us has gotten to see it!

Can you guess where we're moonin'? And, just because it's Friday...I'll send a little gift to the first person to guess correctly**!


P.S: I'm guest posting today over at Pugh's News, while my dear, dear friend Erin takes her summer vacation! Stop by and check it out...then stick around forever. Erin is truly one of the sweetest girls in the blogosphere, always full of positive energy and a kind word. Her blog is a true delight! :)

**Rule: No fair if you saw me flappin' my gums about this the other day via Facebook. Honor system, peeps! :)

  5. My first guess was Ireland (for the same reason as Erin) but you said neither of you had seen it? I feel like it'd be Italy or Greece. I may lean Greece because when my sister went there for a study abroad experience she came back saying everything was white and blue which is your color scheme.

  7. Beautiful photo - both the photo itself, and the story behind it! <3
    As for your honeymoon, my first thought was Ireland. But you say it's somewhere that neither of you have ever seen so now I just don't know.
    I'm lost on ideas. But I get the idea that it's not a beach somewhere. Maybe Italy?
