It’s April, which means a couple of things! (1.) My birthday was last week and (2.) it’s spring break season! (So yes, April is basically my favorite month ever.) As kids we always used to load into the family SUV and make the 14 hour trek to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina every year for a long lazy week of sand …

I was super excited to see when reading through the reader survey responses so far that so many of you are interested in more travel posts! I absolutely love traveling (scope out #tsotravels) and have a few trips in the works this year after traveling less last year while I was pregnant. As luck would have it, I was already planning on writing today’s post, sharing my top 5 favorite vacation spots so I decided to bump it up in the schedule. …

That Time I Went Glamping in Montana (Part II)

Written by | filed under Travel | 2 comments

At long last this morning I’m making good on my promise to share more photos of my recent glamping trip in Montana with you. It has been just shy of a month since I left that beautiful place and I’m telling you, I can’t wait to go back someday. Is Montana on your bucket list? I truly hope it is, but if it isn’t you should definitely consider adding it! I have to admit that when I was offered the …

I am so excited to be sharing photos of my recent Montana glamping adventure with you today! (Actually, I’m going to be sharing even more photos tomorrow because there are just so many that I can’t even help myself.) A couple of weeks ago I was among a group of super lucky ladies who got to fly out to The Resort at Paws Up with Skinny Cow to experience the ultimate glamping excursion. We flew into Missoula at about 4 …

Now that I’m finally feeling a bit more human again, I had a chance early this morning to sift through all of my many photos from last week. Seriously, I took a ridiculous number. Rather than bore you though I’ve culled it down to just a handful of favorites to share with you. If you recall, I started my week in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, a city I love so much and the home of my best girl Erika. We …

It was another super early wake up call this morning for Erika and I as we rolled out from her home in Charleston (where I’ve been hanging out all week) and made our way to Montana today. (We’re talking three flights and about 14 hours in airports and on planes!) We just arrived a bit ago and …

Guys. Remember earlier in the week when I was having a bit of a moment and mentioned I would be traveling much of next month? Well, let’s just say one of those trips is an adventure of epic proportions that I can’t wait to tell you about. Next Thursday I’ll be boarding a plane with one of …

As my iPhone has become more and more attached to my hand in recent years (and I know you can relate), I’ve loved taking random off the cuff photos of the everyday. Especially when I’m traveling! Whether it’s a cocktail that’s so tasty I want to try and remember …

Travel Snippets: Charleston

Travel Snippets: Charleston

Written by | filed under Travel | 6 comments

I thought I’d take a few minutes this afternoon to share with you just a few snippets from my travels here in Charleston so far. I flew in last Wednesday to spend a week with my good friend and partner in design-loving crime, Erika Firm of Delphine. While I have a couple of days left in my travels, I’ve already totally fallen in love with this beautiful city. The architecture is heavenly and the food? Out of this world. If …

Loving Adventures

This summer I have an unshakable sense of wanderlust. All I want to do is travel, explore and adventure the days away. While my current schedule keeps that from being a reality, I am hoping that this fall I can set off on a few grand adventures. Topping my list? A trip to Banff National Park in Alberta with a stay at the unbelievable Fairmont. Seriously, is that place even real? Talk about a dream! Fancy hotels aside, I really …

Dreaming About Summer Camp

Dreaming About Summer Camp

Written by | filed under Travel | 7 comments

It’s not really any secret that I have been dreaming about running away to summer camp pretty much nonstop for the past couple of months. Spending long sunny days swimming, fishing, climbing trees, going for walks in the woods and playing kickball? Sign me up! Yesterday I discovered Camp Wandawega via Honest to Nod and that was all it took to send me off into another bout of summer camp day dreams. I am so ready to pack my rucksack …
