Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!


Discovering new blogs and interesting people on the web.

Journaling daily about gratitude and creativity and what I really want out of life.

Eating Walter's hot dogs twice in one weekend.

Traveling for work for the first time in years.

Leaving my baby for the first overnight (two nights!) in our life.

Sleeping diagonal in the bed.

Listening to the Raffi (Children's) station on Pandora.

Watching my baby turn into a boy, eating/walking/laughing/expressing himself like a real boy.

Wearing fall clothes for the first time this year. I'm all about the corduroy.

Wishing for the perfect pair of riding boots to go with my cords.

Loving my husband for taking on solo parent duty and sending me the sweetest texts to get me through these nights away.

Dreaming about a new home for our family, and taking that next step.

Planning to write more, to make room for a regular practice.

Counting the days until Baby Bear's first birthday.

Grateful for pretty colored pens, washi tape, warm clothes and hot tea.
