Oh Paris ! You were everything I expected and more. Robinson and I were very happy to finally meet you. Just in case you were wondering what we did, what we ate and what we saw, I put together a personal guide to the city of lights. From enjoying a picnic at the Eiffel Tower to finding the best, most breathtaking view of the city, check out my guide to Paris below.

If you follow me on instagram you know I’ve done nothing in the past few weeks but post photos of our first vacation in Europe. After months of planning and working so hard on my film, two weeks in Europe sounded ideal. We visited Paris for a week ( post to follow ) but it wasn’t until we arrived at Chateau d’Esclimont ( just an hour outside of the city ) that Robinson and I entered level of relaxation we were looking for or what I’ve been calling “The Beauty and the Beast” vacation zone.
This past February I spent a little over two weeks in the most wonderful city in the world, Rio de Janeiro. People often ask me if I miss Brazil and if ever think of going back. The answer is primarily, no. I miss it but not to the point of waiting to make a life for myself there again. With the exception of this place. How could I not? The short two-year period when I harbored a home in Rio were long enough to make me fall in love for life. Over and over again.
One of the infinite reasons why I love this place so much is the local’s dedication to living a healthy, balanced lifestyle and their tireless passion for the place they inhabit. My days would start bright and early with a 7AM work out at the beach, surrounded by the most beautiful landscape you will ever see. There were countless options for healthy, fresh food restaurants to enjoy and even get delivered at your door.
There were so many beautiful images we captured and little space to share them, so I selected a few of my favorite for what will be the last from mexico. When people ask me how Mexico was I have to say it was nothing short of amazing. You can find so many great deals online these days it’s definitely worth considering. My best pointer? All inclusive is the way to go in Cancun.
Our nights in Mexico consisted of dining on some delicious Mexican dishes, walking about the resort as we felt the light ocean breeze, grabbing a drink or two at the sushi bar and just enjoying each other’s company. A bit boring, I know. But we decided to leave the clubbing night scene for next time.

In the mist of a hard-working few weeks for both me and my husband, we decided to take a few days off to indulge in pure relaxation at the family’s cabin in the mountains. And what a treat! I’ve selected a few images that I feel illustrates how much of a sweet time we had. Although the cabin trip is over, we’re now visiting my in-laws in good old Indiana. Cheers for an amazing family and delicious you-cook-I-watch-and-eat time.
