I took this photo at the top of the Arc de Triomphe in 2013. It wasn’t until last week when I took a closer look and noticed the touristy folks that were all around me.

Have a Beautiful Weekend.

September 25, 2015


Happy Weekend, ya’ll. Have anything fun planned? I’m looking forward to cooler weather and spending more time outdoors. Weather permitting, I’ll be finishing up my last project of this month’s class from my balcony. Inside or out, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

More soon!
