Friday Favorites No. 7: Travel Edition

Friday Favorites

This week’s favorites are all about travel, my favorite thing to do. We leave for Scandinavia in a few days (start following on Instagram for all our crazy adventures), and I’m really excited!

The July 4th Style Edit

Fashion, The Edit Series

July 4th was always one of my favorite holidays as a kid. It’s still really fun as an adult, even though we’ve celebrated in another country for the last decade. Our summer vacation always seems to fall over the holiday. But I do love the idea of barbeques and fireworks. How do you celebrate our […]

3 Important Lessons I Learned From My Ancestry DNA Test

Lifestyle

For most of my life I was pretty comfortable with not really knowing my ancestral origins. I sort of knew my family’s background from knowing my mother’s side of the family tree. I knew there were strong English roots on that side. But the other half of my DNA has always been a mystery. Without […]

Styling an Italian Summer Bar Cart

Happy Hour, Home, Lifestyle

Gift Ideas

Did Father’s Day sneak up on you, too? I just went through all the ads from our weekly paper and all I seem to find are coffee mugs that say things like “#1 dad” as well as t-shirts and neckties with similar slogans. Don’t get me wrong…good dads deserve to know they’re #1. But I […]

Eat+Stay+Play: Santa Fe and Taos

Eat+Stay+Play Travel Guides, Travel

The Land of Enchantment was good to us. A spiritual vibe floats along desert winds, dancing through cottonwood trees and blanketing the mesas. I’ve only ever seen New Mexico from the window of an airplane and the snow-covered slopes of Taos ski valley, so I was ready to feel the warm early summer sun and […]

I’ve been a little MIA on here this week, but if you’ve been following me on Instagram then you know I’ve been enjoying New Mexico! Sometimes you just need to unplug for a bit. But I’m back from a wonderful time relaxing and reflecting in Santa Fe and Taos. The Land of Enchantment did not […]

The May Edit: Summer Under $100


Fashion, The Edit Series

As soon as May gets here I feel like I’m already in summer mode. We spent a relaxing Memorial Day weekend at home. Sometimes it’s nice to be home bodies. We slept in, made some great food, snuggled with our puppy, and sipped wine late into the evening. Friday night we had a little shrimp […]
