Denver Summer - De quelle planete es tu 1I’ve been going through my Colorado pictures from my vacation in June, and am so excited to continue to share them with you all. So many beautiful landscapes and delicious brews and things to do.

It’s always a hoot going home.

I realize how much I love the state of Colorado, and the lifestyle there. It’s active and full of stunning backdrops. Colorado’s food culture is constantly evolving, with new cafés and restaurants opening left and right in old garages alongside breweries and storefronts. Denver neighborhoods are expanding and showcasing new places and spaces in untouched corners of the city. I crave this city sometimes. The grid that it sits on, parts diagonally, and the summertime sunsets that glow on the Rockies.

On a sidenote, I’ve recently realized how many Coloradans I know here in Paris, and it made my heart lift up a bit. I just adore Denver and its surroundings, and feel like such a lucky girl to have been raised there.

A la maison - De quelle planete es tu - 1After a month on the stateside, I am finally back home in Paris. Despite jet lag and my obsession for immediately putting every single thing back in order, I’ve got some time to relax and breath. Going home to Colorado is never completely relaxing, so lucky we had some beach time in Hawaii. It’s nice to feel bored sometimes.

Whenever I’m flying back over the Atlantic, often a flight filled with first-timers to Paris, I think about how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful city. This life I’ve created certainly seems unreal at times. I also wonder what I had in me that made it happen. Thank goodness it did, because I wouldn’t have it any other way. Perhaps that’s why it hits me when I am so anxious to get back to my stuff. My books. My frame-filled walls. My homegirls. My teacups. My blue couch. Am I ridiculous?

And of course, with some fresh flowers in the room, I can really feel summer in Paris has finally arrived. However, now it’s back to the real world, and a transitional month and the speed really picking up right about now.

A la maison - De quelle planète es-tu? 1The sun was shining through the other day and it brought some new tints into the apartment. It was so refreshing.

With the cold it makes me so anxious for spring.

Not really sure why, but it’s been an intense end to winter, and I feel so cozy and at ease at home. It’s nice to just stay warm and avoid the bitter cold at times with a cup of tea. I always find new ways to put holes in my walls and add some this & that’s.

I’m anxious for the longer days.

As tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, I wanted to post these lovely photos that Jean-Laurent took of Louis and I a few weeks ago. It was what he calls a “Love session”. He has a talent for capturing beautiful candid moments. And gosh I am so happy with how they turned out!

It’s hard to get some seemingly natural shots as sometimes it’s awkward to show PDA in front of a camera, eh? We did our best.

I really like these pictures because they were taken in our apartment. In our own element. With our stuff. It felt so much more natural, and so much more true.

I love love.

You can check out the original post on Jean-Laurent’s blog here.

Don’t forget to check out his blog and Facebook page for more updates and showcasing of his sublime couples photography.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

I’ve always felt so strongly about what I surround myself with at home. I care about the space in which I live, and want it to be filled with snippets of my personality, hobbies and dreams and reflect who I am.

After two amazing weeks home in Denver, it is refreshing to be back at home with all of my stuff. And of course it’s so fun to integrate all of my new little treasures into the mix of my little nid. Do you feel that way sometimes? The need to be around your things? It’s a weird feeling, isn’t it? Human’s ability to accumulate things and be so attached to them.

You can find some more pictures of Louis and I’s doll house here. I just love changing around trinkets and things to give a new spin to the eye every now and again. Some would call me crazy.
