Join Me at The Hello Sessions

Written by | filed under Travel | 0 comments

I’ve never been to Portland (of the Oregon persuasion) before so I’m pretty excited to be packing up my bags in October to head off to The Hello Sessions! Following their inaugural conference last fall (which I was sad to miss due to being approximately 42 months pregnant), founders Melissa and Joy reached out to ask me if I’d lead a workshop at this year’s event. In a word, my answer was yes! I would really really love if you …

A Weekend in Key West

A Weekend in Key West

Written by | filed under Travel | 3 comments

I got home at right around two o’clock yesterday morning from a whirlwind of a trip to Key West celebrating my sister’s bachelorette weekend. Now that I’m home, we are a whopping five days out from having to be moved out of our current apartment while simultaneously trying to finish up phase I renovations at our house, so basically things are crazy. Plus I’m sunburned and missing all of the amazing ladies I got to spend the last few days with and …

Happy Monday, friends! The countdown is on until Thursday when I catch a flight and head off to meet up with my lil’ sister for her bachelorette weekend getaway in Key West. Hip hip hooray!

But we’ve been planning this trip for months …

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 …

That Time I Went Glamping in Montana (Part II)

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 …

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 …
