I am famous among my friends and family for booking cheap flights to Europe in spring and fall. I’m away from the continent in the summer but when I see a deal pop up, I make room in my schedule to go! I like to visit European countries in April, May, September or October when the weather is good, prices are low and there are less tourists on the streets.
My birthday is at the end of this month, so to celebrate I’m going to Paris for a few days with my girlfriends. A traveling companion of mine had never been there, oh what fun it would be to show my dear friend the City of Lights! Next, we head to the Netherlands by train to explore the country and its cities. I welcome any recommendations, I’ve only seen parts of Amsterdam and that was 20 years ago so if you can recommend any adventures besides The Hague, Utrecht and Delft, please share!
I’ve been working on room makeovers all week, sewing new curtains and framing art for the updated space. I hope to finish the room and share the reveal before I leave town (fingers crossed). I have a cute and crafty Halloween project to share next week as well.
