24 Hours in Copenhagen

April 30, 2015

Copenhagen is a quaint city that is full of character. It is full of friendly people, amazing architecture and beautiful plants and flowers. You won’t walk a block without seeing 10 people on bikes pleasantly riding to their next destination. It is seemingly very common to bike to work, and you will see packs of people leisurely riding in a dedicated bike lane. There didn’t seem to be much car traffic, but the bike congestion was out of this world. People didn’t seem to mind though. Rain, shine or bumper to bumper, these people seemed pretty happy and care-free strolling away on their bicycles!

We got to see a good amount of the city in the time we were there, but there is always more to see and do–no matter how much time you spend somewhere! So, if you are going to spend 24 hours in Copenhagen, here are a few top sights to see.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, we have tried to save money by doing a lot of cooking, and then going out to just a couple meals in each spot. We then will then get coffee and some local treats [France we had to try the pastries and in Italy—obviously the gelato!].

Four Years

June 20, 2014

Yesterday marks our four-year anniversary! Dennis and I met in college at Vanguard when we were on the basketball teams. We were good friends and ended up dating my sophomore year [his junior year]. Eight months later, we were engaged, and a year after that we tied the knot.

I honestly can’t believe how fast the time has gone.
