Sometimes you just have to hop on a plane. Despite whether it might be the "wrong" month or out of peak season. After the wildness of wedding and production season, I occasionally crave a little bit of hibernation. Or maybe a small window into winter. My friend Maryanne (Maryanne Mcguire Photography) and I hopped on a plane and brought a ton of warm clothes so that we could explore Copenhagen and Stockholm in the cold, dark winter. It was so surreal. We did nothing but walk around the cities, snapping away and sharing smiles about how exciting it was to get out of dodge and see something new. It seemed to be nighttime more often than not, and the whole trip made me fall in love with cozy clothes. This girl was born to wear sandals and sun dresses, but on this trip, I discovered a deep love for fleece. Yup fleece. Also, coffee took a hold of me in a deep and profound way. Winter and coffee just go together. It was my vitamin D replacement.
We took a ski trip to the mountains up north, went on The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo city tour, and had drinks at an ice bar that was epically cool.
We recovered from the busy end to 2015, and returned feeling rejuvenated and inspired with a crush on winter and all things Scandinavian.
I so hope you get on a plane soon.
