Weekly Wishes // May 2014

My First Experiences Using Mandarin Chinese

Doors and Doorways in Venice, Italy

M and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with a short trip to Venice, Italy. It was my first trip ever to Italy and I fell in love with the beautiful canals, delicious food, and lively crowds in the city. It was a memorable weekend! Venice’s doors and doorways were dispersed amongst the streets and alleyways, and even along the canals. I had the opportunity to...

Of course, as usual, I took several photos of doors and doorways in East France and so I wanted to share them with you. Doors and...
