Time to explore The Last Frontier! If you enjoy the outdoors and being active, Alaska is calling you. It’s a land of extremes and one of those is beauty! I haven’t seen the long dark days of winter, but summer… 18 hours of sunlight and a long slow sunset, DREAMY. Our first night in Anchorage, we built a
For years I’ve been dreaming of the bright blue waters and dramatic mountains of Lake Louise in Banff National Park. I’ve scrolled through countless pictures and found myself lost in a Pinterest black hole of wanderlust, but nothing prepared me for the real thing. You can imagine my excitement the day we finally drove out to the park; watching the hazy mountains in the distance get closer and closer…. Until they became massive outlines of the mountain range and a film of white dust covered the hood of our car. Just as we were ready to take in the splendor of the majestic mountain scape…
Living out of a suitcase once again and with a heart set for wonder! We’re on an adventure North and Calgary, Canada is our first stop. I’ve been dreaming of setting my sights on the glory of the Rockies, but before we dive right into nature, I thought we’d do a little city living, and show off a few dramatic details with my silk and sweater combo. A fulfilling brunch, tasty cocktails and beautiful cappuccino later, I’ve enjoyed a few “new favorites” and I wasn’t even looking!
We wait all winter for the warmth and freedom of summer; a few glorious months to escape our home, office, studies, even cities for some much needed vacation. Hopefully you all are enjoying a balanced combination of leisure and adventure. I on the other hand, tend to find myself sprinting through all the fun, trying to accomplish my summer bucket list that I of course made far too long. I have this guilty pleasure in filling up my calendar; making plans, appointments and to-do lists. Something about penciling it in feels so good!
Random fact about me: when I was
Everyone loves a weekend getaway, especially when that weekend stretches through Tuesday! A few extra days for travel are a perfect excuse to hit the road and explore a new city. Gus and I drove down to Chattanooga for a little family vacation, complete with coffee shops, breweries, ice cream and fireworks. So naturally, I want to share it with you all!
Summer vacations are upon us and if you’re thinking of adding Bali to your bucket list… DO IT! No part of the 2 ½ weeks I spent exploring this magical island was overrated. If anything, it exceeded my expectations (which is practically impossible), taking my breath away again and again. It helped that I had the company of a wonderful new friend and travel buddy Jules Hunt of Om & the City! You may already know the story, but we went to high school together and never met. Then all these years later
I’m overjoyed to have a very special visitor in Chicago this week! My little sister (the one and only) is here to spend some quality time in the Windy City with me. As I was looking up all the places I wanted to take her, I realized there is so much I haven’t seen yet! Most of it revolves around food… but I prefer it that way. There are Ice cream cones sandwiched between fluffy waffles, sushi in made into burritos an donuts (I have got to get my hands on this), milkshakes with a slice of cake on top, and bloody mary’s with doughnuts and bacon (do you really need anything else). I have a lot of eating to do! I would love
