Paris Trip | Inspiration

We made it to Paris Safe and Sound. But the weather wasn't very nice! It was sooo cold and not only cold but Snowy, Bitter Cold. Truly being from Utah we take the snow, no problem. Well France, Not so much. The whole country shut down. I am assuming the reason why they don't use salt is because the streets and sidewalks are made of either granite or marble. No joke. It is so crazy yet so beautiful to see. So with that said... This is why I LOVE PARIS!!

The Architecture

Me and the Hubby

Old Museums with so much COOL History

Le Grand Hotel (where we stayed)

See Snowing!

the pretty Lobby

I loved this Art in our room.


(There were so many people around the Mona Lisa, that this is truly a "point and click" over
 head picture of her)

Van Gogh Portrait


The Eiffel Tower

The view from Up Top. We had dinner there at the top restaurant. It was very cool!

The Lock Bridge

Our Lock of LOVE

Me throwing the Key in the river

the Opera House- our hotel was around the block.

The Pastries and Chocolate- TO DIE FOR GOOD!!

The Charm

I loved all of the Bistro Chairs

Anyone else out there LOVE Paris?

Coopenhagen, Denmark | Danish Antiques

I was really lucky to have tagged along with the hubby to Europe this past week. We went to Paris and I loved that place too. But I fell in love with Coopenhagen Denmark. Here's why!

The Bikes 

(If I had to say one word to describe Denmark I think "Bike" would be it. They are everywhere cuz it's really expensive to get a drivers license and drive here.  Plus it makes everyone physical fit there. 
Which I think is cool.)

The Colors

The Sights

(This is inside the courtyard of the palace where the Queen actually lives. View of the Cathedral)

 (Historic Museum at Fredericksborg Castle in Hillerod, Denmark)

 They had different wood floors in every room. It was so Cool!

The Homes

(on our tour, we were told the average beach front property costs between $6-8 million dollars.)


Yes that water is frozen. It was so cold the whole time we were in Europe. Not the best season to be walking around. ;)

 (the Ugly Duckling ringing a bell. Denmark is proud to call home to the famous Hans Christian Anderson)

Driving along the coast. On a clear day you can see Sweden. It's a mile off the coast and a 20 min boat ride.

Beautiful Antiques
I was dying not only were they expensive. (everything in Europe is expensive) But I would of had to pay for mega shipping costs. Such a bummer. If only I was a millionaire. ;)

And last but not least. The FOOD and THE PEOPLE are amazing. I had the best Veggie sandwich at this little cafe. There breads and cheese are to dye for. The people are all so friendly. Plus they all know English very well! They start learning English in the 3rd grade. So cool!

Has anyone else been to Denmark and fell in love with it?
