A Poised Quill πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­  βœ’ Quiet adventures told through the lens and words of @bobbierebultan ❀ Food + Books πŸ“š goodreads.com/bobbierebultan πŸ‘‰ facebook.com/APoisedQuill

Lourdes is a town of arcadian beauty. ❀ The sleepy town both unnerved and fascinated me. πŸ‡«πŸ‡· Making our way up the Chemin de Croix remains an indelible memory.

Been in Paris since yesterday, and first thing we did was visit La Basilique du SacrΓ© CΕ“r de Montmartre. Walking along the village of Montmartre in a cold afternoon is a great way to explore historical Paris. The architecture of the buildings is a sight to behold. 😍

It finally feels like New Year. πŸ˜‰β€ @elarslechon

Now reading: Pines by Blake Crouch. I've been meaning to start Crouch's Wayward Pines trilogy for so long now, but it had been incredibly hard to get a copy of it on this side of the world. 😫 --

These two drastically different scents from @frostbeardmpls create the balance of Christmas craziness for me -- Christmas at The Burrow is cozy and nostalgic, while Bah Humbug reminds me of pleasant surprises and hectic holiday frenzy. Both, however, reminds me of blessed food-filled holidays at home. ❀

I still haven't gotten past the madness of the few months. Hence, posts have been few and far between. Even my Setting The Scenes have been sporadic. 😫 I've received so many blessings this year and I'm incredibly thankful, but I hope the craziness of life let up a little. πŸ˜…

Just when I thought I couldn't possibly love this brand more, they go and release their butterbeer! 😱😱😍😍😍 It tastes *almost* the same as the butterbeer they sell at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Japan! 😍 Stanford Shaw's take on the beverage, however, is less sweet (which is a win for me), and it does not have a froth as heavy as TWWHP's. 😘 @stanfordshawbrewing , you guys are the BEST!

Enchanting city lights while reading a thriller. πŸŒƒ What a view! 😍

Now reading: Final Girls by Riley Sager. Just when the year is about to end, I caught a reading slump. πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜– No matter! I hope an acclaimed thriller would get me going again. 😁😁😁

After almost a month of inactivity I still haven't gotten over my writing and reading slump. πŸ˜”πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­ I am seriously hoping to move past this because I'm already behind my reading goal. 😒

Random #shelfie πŸ˜ƒ I love looking at my shelves especially after I've cleaned them. πŸ“šπŸ’• It makes me dream of bigger and grander shelves and more books. 😍 There's another shelf at the bottom that isn't included in this shot--that's the shelf that houses my least favorite books. (Excuse the mothballs and silica gels. I like to keep my shelves insect-free and mold-free πŸ˜…πŸ˜›)

Delicately and skillfully prepared right in front of their smitten, drooling, and mesmerized customers provides a rare combination of artistic entertainment and a glimpse of Japan's culinary culture. πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ http://bit.ly/apq-kobe-beef (Bobbie & Borgy: Japan, April 2017)

I'm sorry (not really) for this really random steak picture. πŸ˜‚ It's nearing lunch time here and I am seriously craving for steak. 😡

Now reading: The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley by Hannah Tinti. I've read so many positive reviews about this book, but I honestly still don't know what to expect from it. After the weirdness rip-roaring of American Gods, I'm really not ready for something too tame, so I hope this book won't be that. πŸ˜…
