New York, NY ~ These photos were taken in 2015. I was thrilled to see the museum, but I was far more excited to see the Bjork exhibit on display that summer. Sadly, photos were not allowed for most of her exhibit, but I did manage to get one set. Elvis Costello, another all time favorite, also made the cut. Good times!

Waxahachie, TX ~ The Ellis County Courthouse is located at 109 S. Jackson St, Waxahachie, TX 75165. This historic structure has been fully restored and is operational. You’ll need to visit in person to see the amazing architectural details, such as the gargoyles, carved faces on the columns, and granite stone at the base. If you stop by during the day you can even take a free tour. * These photos were taken in the winter of 2017.
Waxahachie, TX ~ One of my favorite places to be! The people are nice, the stores are unique, and there is history at every turn. Each building has an original style and most are very well maintained. Anyone who loves antiquing should consider a weekend visit.

Montréal, Canada ~ The first photo in this series is of our hotel room at Parc Suites Hotel, 3463 Park Ave, Montreal, QC H2X 2H6, Canada (parcsuites.com).

Montréal, Canada ~ Montréal is a vibrant city, mixed with historic and modern architecture, and equally diverse citizens. Our stay here was brief, but we fell in love instantly. These photos were taken on a stroll one afternoon around the city. I usually jot down the names of the streets and major locations, but I was having too much fun sightseeing, and completely forgot to take notes. Anyhow, you’ll just have to visit to see these places for yourself!
