Let’s be honest…I’ve been a little TOO lax when it comes to blogging lately. I’ve gotta million pretty good excuses, but none of them are really good enough…especially when there are lots of other photographers and creatives blogging their brains out- and pretty darn consistently at that. So I promise to consistently promise you consistency- and work hard to achieve it…good enough promise for now?
Anywho- it’s been quite some time since I blogged a weekend wrap-up. And lots has happened since the last wrap-up, so rather than try to wrap-up the last couple months– I’ll give myself a little grace and just start with the last week.
As you may have gathered via my instagram and facebook, I was back in the states for about 10 days for an amazing wedding, a few engagement shoots, and a styled shoot day with my interns– all of which I can’t wait to share! I’ve already shared Janice and Ryan’s Old Town Alexandria engagement and Maria and Eric’s Downtown Annapolis engagement- so if you haven’t already checked those two out…go ahead and click those links!
As soon as I returned from the states, I was greeted by Joey at the airport of courseand his parents for a week of exploring more of Bogota- and trying my hand at tour guide! You’ll have to ask them to see if I succeeded- but just remember: I’m not fluent in the language- I deserve a little bit of a handicap…right?
It was wonderful to be able to spend some time exploring more of Bogota together- we revisited a few places, but also saw a few new places! And you know I’m always game for taking more pictures- and in a city so full of color- there’s always new pictures to be takenWe also were blessed to all spend Easter together! Last year Joey and I were family-less for Easter in London- and spent the day with our good friend Lindsay, and this year we of course spent it all together at church together in Bogota- it’s a huge blessing to have family together for holidays!
Enjoy some snapshots from our week of exploring!
First Up: Exploring the Old City- La Candelaria
Next Up: Monserrate- a mountain that sits a few thousand feet above Bogota. We didn’t hike this time- so we instead took a cable car. I’m deathly afraid of heights…so this was SUPER fun…
The Salt Mine of Zipaquira- this mine is still in operation, and also includes a Cathedral. Beautiful place to be just before Easter!
Andres Carne de Res of Chia- I’d been dying to try this restaurant for a while- and was so glad it was a good spot for us to get lunch after Zipaquira. There are few different locations- but this is the original..The ambiance and decor is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before- and the pictures absolutely don’t do it justice! I could have explored for HOURS. And the food was good tooWe were greeted about 30 minutes into our time at Andres by a mariachi band who welcomed us to Colombia and gifted us with sashes. Too fun!
Easter Sunday!- As I said, it was so wonderful having family to celebrate the most holy of days with. Thinking back on the past couple Easter’s- I’m overwhelmed at what a gift it has been to celebrate our risen Savior with believers ALL over the world!
Happy Belated Resurrection Day! And Happy Tuesday!
