Back from Barcelona!


Hi everyone! We’re back from Barcelona and I already miss it! I am happy to be home and reunited with my sweet little Tate, but I really did leave my heart in Barcelona. It has quickly risen to the top of the list of my favorite cities. It has everything anyone could possibly want: amazing architecture and art, delicious food, wonderful people, the mountains, and the sea. If you’re considering going, please do. I promise you’ll love it! On Monday, I will be sharing pictures and details of our trip including all of Gaudí’s glorious sites and a meeting with my favorite designer, so please be sure to check back. Happy Friday!

  1. Paloma,
    I’ve been enjoying your blog. It is very beautiful. I recently backpacked about the world for eight months. Barcelona made a lasting impression on me. I look forward to seeing your photos. I love reminiscing.

    I wanted to ask you a silly question. Because everything you do is so young, vibrant and pretty, I’m hoping you will know just what to do.

    Many of my dear friends have birthdays coming up. It is a monumental time in our lives – we are turning 21! However, I want to give them pretty gifts. Do you have any suggestions on what to give them? I’d love to make something lovely or buy something simple and great. Any suggestions?

    Thank you! Keep blogging; I really enjoy it.

  2. Such a pretty pic of you! Glad it was such a great trip – what a perfect way to celebrate the 5-yr milestone 🙂 I’ll definitely be using your tips/recommendations for the city….hopefully sooner rather than later!

  3. Hi Paloma! Sorry for leaving your heart there! Are you from Spain?! If so… CONGRATULATIONS TODAY! Good for Spain in The World Cup!

    Anyway, I can’t wait for your pictures… For sure my next trip to Europe I have to go visit Barcelona!
