My weekend away!

My sweet husband let me go on a weekend trip to Switzerland all by myself!  I was in desperate need of a little time alone, as traveling with children is anything but easy!   Switzerland was heavenly!  I had a wonderfully refreshing weekend!  Switzerland is definitely a photographer’s paradise.


I spent the first night near Lucerne, Switzerland.  I was up at 5:30 and in town in time to watch venders setting up their stands of fresh produce, breads, cheeses, meats, and fresh flowers.  I watched the sun come up and spent the morning walking the streets and enjoying the city.

The sun was intense on the tops of the mountain range, it seemed strange to feel hot and look at snow capped mountains at the same time! I chose to spend more time just taking in the views instead of actually hiking. Sitting still is a luxury that one does not have with a two year old around, so I thoroughly enjoyed it!

I spent the second night in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland. It is an amazing place, peaceful and picturesque!  I would love to go back with Adam and the girls sometime.
