one with stripes, one spotted










burr burr burr burr burr. Minneapolis is cold land, USA.
Last weekend I flew to Portland, OR and saw some family who are much too far away. The town is so wonderful and the weather was nearly perfect...I wish it was closer.
My brother showed me this really neat huge, huge book store. It's the largest in America, taking up six blocks! I bought Silent World by Jaques Cousteau, and touched some pretty pricey reads. Kyle would have gone craaazy.

what's your favorite town? I haven't been to many so I don't have a lot of choices.
I love kansas city, because it's my home...but portland fantastic. Oh and DC is really pretty, too.
I think if I could visit more towns, I think I'd really love smaller towns in france.

kansas city is of course the city of my heart! but i LOVED san francisco. it was so neat. i loved the houses, and the hills, and the pier. all of it was so fantastic. i will be living 2 hours from san francisco in 2 months! i'm excited!

smaller towns in france does sound delightful♥
I particularly love San Francisco...the weather is so brilliant, and it is ever so green. It's quite magical, I may say♥

My favourite cities are Dublin, London and of course Paris. You must travel to Europe. There are a lot of great cities. I live in Munich and it´s amazing.

thanks for visiting my blog :) nah, i didn't get a chance to see "where the wild things are" opening night. my friends dragged me to see "zombieland" but i'm glad i did because it was super funny! i'm most likely going to see it later when less kids are in the theater haha

oooh portland, oregon, it's on my list of places that i'd like to move to. i'm currently in charleston, wv it's a nice little place but i kind of miss philadelphia and nj/nyc where i used to live. i don't miss the grittyness of those big cities though. i'm definitely swayed by good food. so as long as there is something delicious to eat, i'll be there. i travel a lot too so i've covered most of the east side of the states, still need to venture out west one day.

For my favorite town I'd have to say San Luis Obispo (where I live), Paris was pretty good too though. . .haha.
I adore you blog! I love how all of your photos have a sort of quiet, pure feeling. Not to mention you are absolutely stunning!

Reading about these cities make me feel sad :/ I live in Brazil, and is very expensive to go to another country, and almost impossible because we can't enter without a passport, permission for tourist ... Living in France is my biggest dream. And I'll do it someday! Oh, I love the pictures, really cute!

I don't really know much about USA as I live in England, but I love ambleside because I loved it when my sister owned a little bookshop and we'd always walk past a garden full of flowers all cold but wrapped up warm to go to the bookshop x
