Quiet of Winter in Italia

Though many places we visit in the summer are busy and full of people wearing visors and socks with sandals, in the winter they’re quite desolate. I can manage to appreciate both. On the one hand, I love to see people while their happy and on holiday but, on the other, I also enjoy the … Continue reading

An Instance of Umbria

I am in the process of putting together a couple of stories for a project, so I’ll keep this brief and mysterious. Over the Christmas holidays, my husband and I visited Umbria.  And, I will tell you now, so far it’s on the top of my list for favourite region in Italy.  The people are … Continue reading

Monochromatic Eindhoven

    I went for a walk on Sunday and made some photos of the town I live in, Eindhoven, Nederland.  We are at the peak of shopping season with Sinterklaas just days away, so it was a great opportunity to make photos of a lot of people.  The intent behind the making of the … Continue reading

Monochromatic Amsterdam

We live relatively close to Amsterdam; about one and half hours south.  Which by Dutch standards is very far, but for an American, it’s no big deal.  And for my Italian husband and his family, it’s the equivalent of the commute from their house, driving into Rome, on a busy day.  We’ve been to Amsterdam … Continue reading

Veg in Bins

I just wanted to share with you, some photos of veggies in blue bins, as well as some cheese.  We visited a farm in Genneper Park, this past weekend and they sell the veggies that they grow and the meat and cheese they produce on-site.  Happy Monday, everyone!  Have a great week! -Cassie

This post has a simple theme.  I think you’ve already gotten that from the title.  These are views of Paris streets and a quick look at the places we’ve been around … Continue reading

Food(AKA…Life) in Paris

Food in Paris is important.  And, it is excellent.  And, obese people are few and far between.  And all of those svelte people start drinking wine at noon.  Why does this matter?  Well, it’s interesting and delicious and maybe its smart.  Our October “holiday” was last week and we ate and ate and ate.  And … Continue reading

The Louvre

This will be a post of primarily photos. My family and I went to Paris last week to visit a close friend.  This time, saw as many things as possible.  One place I’ve been dying to take my daughters and husband to was the Louvre.

Pizza Margherita & Pizza di Patate

Ah, pizza night at my house.  The only meal I am required to clean my oven by way of vacuum, afterwards. So, here are some photos – some legitimate photos.  Not just some iPhone snaps to make people jealous of my dinner.   But, to be fair, I don’t know what white balance this should … Continue reading

(Green)Gelderland in the Netherlands

Just a couple of months ago, our friends invited us up to Gelderland.  If you have only heard of Gelderland in A Knights Tale and thought that it was a made-up place, well you’re not alone.  Oh, and it’s a real place.  When I told them about this movie and my obvious global ignorance, they … Continue reading
