This impromptu post is dedicated to my lovely grandmother who just passed away this past week. After hearing the news, I immediately flew home to the U.S. to be with my family and celebrate her life. My grandma’s name was Florence, and
Last night, Nicolas and I had plans to go to Tivoli to see all the Halloween decorations and activities. (I did a post on it last year that you can read here. It is quite spooky and magical!)
