A Trip to Cologne, Germany

Both PassportsIf you had the opportunity to go anywhere in the world, where would you go? A bit of a cliché question, however when presented with it, so many thoughts come to mind. You could pack your bags and head to Paris. Or what about flying away to Italy or Greece? For me, the answer is so simple: I would head to Germany. Cologne, German to be specific.

So grab your suitcase (my new favorite is the Delsey Luggage Helium Aero), and pack for an adventure of a lifetime, as I am taking you on my dream vacation and the things I have to see.   Continue reading

Lovely Paperie & Gifts

Outside of the StoreI heard about a new shop that recently opened in Cleveland and have been craving to stop by and check it out. Saturday afternoon I decided that it was the perfect time to head over to Rocky River and sneak a peek.

The Happy Dog

Good shot of Happy DogOne of my favorite places to head to in Cleveland is without a doubt the Happy Dog. I love heading there if I need a good hard cider (one of my favorite places to go to for such an item, along with their other drinks), for their food, to listen to music and to simply hang out.

In my eyes, it is such a staple and a great place to visit when you are in Cleveland, and would make for a great evening out option for after all of your films.
