Paris, part 1.

These past two weeks seem like a dream, how was it just a week ago we were in Europe?!? I could literally rant and rave all day long about our trip, it was one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had and let me tell ya, I'm already looking forward to going back.

We booked our trip through a website called- European Destinations. A-mazing. It was simple, painless and affordable. The trip as a whole was life changing (I'm sure some of that had to do with who I was with, but hey who knows). It rained everyday we were there except for our first day in Paris, OH, and snowed the day we left, but that's a given.

I'll give more details about Paris in my next post, but I was dying to share a few photos (I took over 500 while we were there... I may have a problem).

I hope you enjoy a few of these bad boys:

The arc de triomphe  
 Hunter's favorite: The croque madame 

Beautiful roses on the street 
 Inside the arc
 Yes, I have been going through espresso withdrawls
 I look like an itty bitty ant

Nothing makes me happier..

My name's Marisa, and I'm addicted to quiche. 

Until Paris, part 2,

Blogging world,

I'm sorry I've been non-existent for  a little bit of time now, I have a lot going on and honestly, sometimes it just gets hard to juggle it all. I'll get into more of that in another post because right now I have a BIG announcement.....

Hunter and I are going to Europe.


HOLY MOLY! Talk about impulsive, right? We've been talking about going for almost 2 years now, and 2 weeks ago we finally did it. We booked our flights, our hotels the whole sha-bang. We are definitely embracing being students and having a spring break. And let me be the first to say, I need a mental and physical vacation more than ever, especially with my sweet dude.

So, Paris and Rome, here we come!!!

We leave Thursday, any advice or suggestions would be extremely appreciated.
I'll post more on this later this weekend, I can't even contain my excitement.

Oh, and I wanted to say a BIG thank you to the most amazing best friend I have EVER had, that has been by my side since we were 15 years old, who continues to help me grow and see just why things happen. B, thanks for listening to me whine, and moan about school, and the struggle of finding what makes me happy. I appreciate you more than you could ever know. 

I wanted to share a verse from my daily devotional app, it really touched me and I hope it touches you.

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, give I to you. Don't let your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend, relax and enjoy EVERY second.
