We traveled to Tulum and Cancun Mexico earlier this year. It seems like a lifetime ago but it was only in March. I've never been to Tulum before so it was so lovely to visit this quiet oasis in Mexico. We stayed at the Playa Paraiso Beach Club in Tulum which was exactly what we had hoped for. A small bungalow walking distance to the clear blue ocean. We did have a bit of a seaweed problem on the beach that hindered us from truly enjoying the ocean but we were already going up to Cancun so it wasn't too much of a bummer. In Cancun, we stayed at the Westin Lagunamar which was our second visit to the same hotel. It was so funny because we knew our way around and visited many of the same restaurants we did years ago. However, this time, we were with our daughter Tilly, which made it even more fun & memorable. Can't wait to get our toes back in the sand! xo
We visited Montreal in August for a friends destination wedding. I brought along my Contax 645 to take our vacation photos. I haven't been to Montreal since I was very young so I was seeing this beautiful city for the first time. I absolutely loved Montreal and getting to speak the very little (and poor!) french that I know. Thanks Montreal for having us and putting up with my terrible accent. Merci Beaucoup!!
This summer we did a lot of traveling for weddings. I visited Nashville, St. Louis and Montreal for the first time which was so exciting! Before heading to the Lake, we stayed in St. Louis for a few days to do a bit of exploring. The Gateway Arch is by far one of my favorite things on the planet. I was in complete awe of its beauty and totally terrified once we got to the top. Seriously, it's surreal! We had breakfast at Winslow's Home, went paddle boating in Forest Park before heading to the Cardinals baseball game where I caught a foul ball!! On our last day, we stopped by The Pulitzer Foundation to check out the building and Richard Serra sculpture. While we were driving around, I fell in love with all the vintage parking signs and made my husband pull over so I could photograph them. Our last stop in St. Louis was the breathtaking Abby Church. It was one of the most gorgeous churches I have ever been in and totally made of concrete. Happy Travels!
