A-City-On-A-Lake

A librarian brought me this copy of Scorpio Races to sign last night. No, this isn’t a special edition — apparently this is what they can eventually look like if enough hands share them. No, I don’t really understand the mechanics. Yes, I’m thrilled about it.

Come see me tonight if you’re in the St. Louis area. Then I’ll be headed to Wichita, OK City, Dallas, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, and Denver.

Varykino, the villa where Anakin and Padme shared their first kiss, got married and spent their most happy moments, exists in real life. It is villa di Balbianello, located near little city Lenno on the Como lake, Italy. I was lucky to visit it during my journey across the Italy. Below is a little comparison of villa in Episode II and in real life:

In real life this dock is not functioning, the way down is restricted.

sitting inside one of my favorite coffee shops with one of my favorite people. it’s raining outside, my dream house is right across the street, i have ben howard playing, and i have time to simply d r e a m. it’s been a while since i’ve had the privilege of time to myself.

i’m dreaming of this house right across the street: it’s wood shake siding, brick chimney, big trees surrounding it, warm lights in the attic, and small front yard. it’s secluded while simultaneously being in the middle of the city. i dream of owning a home just like this very one; minneapolis is good at combining city living + lots of trees and lakes, so i’m thankful that that dream isn’t so unrealistic here. i dream of filling the house with a family and lots of food and laughter and love. i dream of slow sundays where the house smells like warm soup and pjs are worn all day. i dream of waking up early and walking across the street to the coffee shop i sit in right now to have a cup of coffee while i read the newspaper. i dream of flower boxes and cozy friday nights and favorite songs floating throughout the house. i dream of quiet, rainy saturday afternoons where we keep the windows open to hear + smell the rain while we read books and soft, classical music plays in the background. i dream of walking our pup through the neighborhood with friends and then having them over for dinner + wine + real conversation out in the front yard under string lights. i dream of you, of you, of you doing all of this alongside me. my heart hurts with how far i feel from you, with how far all of this dream feels. at the same time, though, my heart is hopeful for this. for you.

“Has anyone seen (Y/L/N)?”

“I thought (Y/N) was supposed to go walk Titus with you,” Dick said with a frown, trying to remember the last time he saw you.  “I saw (Y/N) in the living room a few hours ago, but I highly doubt she’s in there now.”

“Tt, I guess I’ll go on the walk without her,” Damian stated.  “Tell (Y/L/N) that I left if you see her.”

“Okie dokie,” Dick responded, returning his attention to organizing the groceries Alfred bought.  “Say hi to the lady with the German Shepherd for me!”

“Shut it, Grayson!”

Bern, Montreux & Lucerne 

September 27th 2016 with @tamingthetides and @hulahooch

This was the day that Amber, Kristi and I took advantage of the deal that the Swiss Railways had on a day pass for groups, so we were able to take the train anywhere for one full day. And to be perfectly honest, it was quite a struggle deciding where to go.

First we went to the capital city of Switzerland - Bern. Due to its political importance, Bern is full of fancy buildings for the Parliament and embassies of other countries, plus it’s got this one fancy cathedral and other old, yet beautiful houses. You can’t really go anywhere in this city without seeing bears, since that’s the official symbol of the town. They even have real live bears living in a downtown enclosure!

The next stop was Montreux, where we planned on taking a ferry to the famous Chateau de Chillon. We ended up not taking the ferry nor making it to the castle because there was an absolute downpour of rain, but we did at least get to see the statue of Freddie Mercury and the giant Lake Geneva surrounded by the Alps. More importantly, this was the girls’ first time in a French speaking part of the world, which was cool, because me and Amber had French together back in high school.

The last stop on our train adventure was in the city of Lucerne, which is another Swiss city surrounded by a lake and moutains, but is probably most known for the old wooden bridge called Käppelsbrucke. Although we just barely missed sunset, we did see the sky turn beautifully blue during twilight. It was impossible for the two to get me to move away from the famous spot by the bridge, so after Amber and Kristi helped me out a bit by throwing some baguette crumbs into the river in order to lure the swans to right spot, they went out to explore the rest of the city while I stayed and took more pics. And before finally going home, we finished off the day by enjoying some delicious gelato by the river and taking some long exposure pics. If you ever get a chance, definitely visit Lucerne and walk across the old bridge and check out at all the paintings underneath the roof.
