Sometimes & Always: Europe Sneak Peak


Hello ladies and gents! Ready to see some Europe pictures? Ready for Megan's first link-up? The concept is simple. You say sometimes to something and then say the always version of that. Today's the first day that Megan is doing it, so fingers crossed that tons of you decided to link-up too!

Sometimes: Getting to try lots of new foods in foreign countries is amazing.

Always: American food is home to me.
La paella de la casa from La Paella de La Reina in Madrid

Sometimes: I wear more stylish shoes to look less like a tourist in Europe.

Always: When I'm walking long distances (like 10 miles a day in Paris), I like my trusty running shoes.

Sometimes: I like to say that I have lots of favorite desserts.

Always: French Macarons in France are my most favorite!

Sometimes: Distance makes the heart grow fonder.

Always:  I miss being away from my sister.
Under the Eiffel Tower

Sometimes: I wonder how I got so lucky with two amazing parents.

Always: I appreciate them and don't say it often enough.

What are you saying sometimes and always about? Go link-up with Megan!

I have never been to Europe. I almost went this past summer but then airfares got too high. I have a few scattered friends in England and France and would so love to see them, other than Skype :)

Sarah Kate said...

I LOVE your running shoes, especially the pink laces! Too cute!! :o) I have just about worn mine completely down. I guess when you can feel the ground through the sole, it's probably time for a new pair, right? ;o)

Those Macarons look delicious!!! I am a sucker for anything sweet, especially when it's colorful, too!

Mrs. Pancakes said...

This is such a fun idea! Here's mine:
Sometimes I feel motivated to go to the gym.
Always I'm more interested in going home to my couch and a glass of wine. :)
