Flowers + Friends in Love: Summertime in Madison

Travel & Personal
February 24, 2016

I may be a Parisian at heart but I was born and will forever [also] be a midwest girl.

My summers always include a trip to the North. One of my best friends lives in Madison and I am so lucky that she lets me visit! The city is full of activities, rich history and architecture and great people. Favorite places are along the shoreline, The Old Fashioned for cheap and strong adult beverages and my new favorite are the summer farmers market along capitol hill.

 

This time around I got to out in the countryside a little bit and enjoy the beautiful farming countryside. Wide open spaces and crops for miles. I also got to shoot two people in love, spoiled to do so and that they actually posed for a few! 🙂

Can’t wait to return soon

Most people make a stop at Versailles during their time in Paris, its a staple for tourists and undeniably grand in every way. Less known in the far corner of Versailles is Marie Antoinette's hamlet where the Queen had an entire peasant village built around a pond by architect Richard Mique. Marie would dress as a shepherdess and gather her friends to play in the town, enjoy the gardens and spend time in a retreat of her own away from the tiresome duties of the court. The oasis was abandoned after the French Revolution but was remodeled and opened to the public in the 1990's. Our visit to the tucked away gem was on typical summer day in th ...
