Moroccan Getaway

moroccangetaway
It seems like it was just yesterday that I arrived in Morocco. I knew time would fly by and I did my best at soaking it all in. It has definitely been an amazing, unforgettable experince. We explored Rabat, Fes, and Marrakesh, but I feel like I needed a week for Fes and another for Marrakesh. We stayed in beautiful riads and we truly enjoyed the authenticity of each place. The local markets were a bit overwhelming since there is so much to see, but we still managed to get quite a bit of shopping done. I’ll be sharing more photos from each city once I return home and get a chance to go through all the moments I captured with my camera. Each city definitely deserves its own post as they are full of history, culture, and Moroccan beauty. It’s sad that my time in Morocco has come to an end, but I’m excited to explore Paris today. I’m looking forward to playing tourist in the City of Light. It’s unseasonably cooler, but the weather will be perfect for my jaunt around the city. To follow along you can always find me on instagram.

Dinner for One

On most nights, you’ll find me eating homemade pizza {my favorite meal} or something easy like a cheese plate, a salad, or store-bought sushi. But on this particular night, having leftover broiled lobster from this recipe, I decided that a proper dinner for one was in order. Just so you know, I rarely sit down to eat or I usually eat at my desk. As the evenings cool down a bit, and on this particular evening it had been raining all day, and the air starts to feel a bit like the beginning of fall, I love to spend time in our sunroom. So I walked my dinner to the room and enjoyed the sound of the rain while I ate. It was so refreshing! And it made me question why I don’t do it more often.
