hi, i'm Ali
Photographer, dog mom, daily walker, reader, and wife to a busy maker. I'm the voice you hear and read at Life Outside the Shop.
From new project how-to's and DIY home updates to the ins-and-outs of building a family & multiple businesses, Life Outside the Shop shares what is really looks like to figure it out as you go.
You know it was a fun trip to Paris when the post-vacation gallery you share with your sis and friends is categorized as “before wine” and “after wine.”
Carrying my nice camera around the city made me a little nervous (given, you know, the wine), so I took most photos on my phone and picked and chose when to bring out the big gun!
If the four of us had to pick our fav day in the city, this would have been it. We spent the morning at famous literary cafés, then hit a highly recommended bakery, fromagerie, and wine shop. Then, we walked to the Eiffel Tower, set up and picnic, and enjoyed ourselves!
Add in drinks on a floating bar on the way to an oyster bar for dinner before ending the night overlooking the city, and it was the makings for the perfect day in Paris.
This was about when it was time to put the camera away (safely in our apartment) and swap it out for the phone! Enjoy some blurry end-of-the-night pics!
