wrapped presents, ornaments
hot chocolate, candy canes, mistletoe, Christmas lights, movies, and the Christmas spirit… ..
Through the years
We all will be together,
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star
upon the highest bough.
And have yourself
A merry little Christmas now….
“ from have yourself a merry little Christmas …” .
Ah. The City of Light… It is acknowledged to be the most romantic metropolis, with amazing landscapes, remarkable monuments, magical lights, best patisseries, and fine works of artwork.
Paris was absolutely wonderful….wandering about the city and getting lost among les Parisiens was a dream.
I plan to blog specific stand-outs from my trip to Europe soon but here is an amuse bouche from Paris until then.
A few of my favorites from Paris…
Relaxing at Les Tuileries
Meeting with a coordinator at Hotel Particulier, Paris

Our hearts and prayers go out to my friends in Japan… and what they are going through with the recent earthquake/tsunami is just horrible. Bella Destinee is donating to the American Red Cross to help with this terrible tragedy. Give what you can and spread the word to help others do the same…
If you would like to donate to the American Red Cross for Japan Earthquake Relief, just text REDCROSS to 90999. Each text will provide $10 towards the Red Cross’s humanitarian efforts.
Just this evening, I was passing by the bank in my neighborhood and 6 year old kids and moms were selling baked goods & lemonade to raise funds for the American Red Cross. It was very touching and I never felt so good about buying cookies and drinks!
What a beautiful day it was…
Hello! I am excited to be back in a blogging groove! I intend on keeping up with the blog and sharing many more inspiring engagement shoots, inspirations and gorgeous weddings with you all.
