Trip Preview: Finland Summer 2022

If I haven’t mentioned it enough, I am heading to Finland in just two weeks to kickoff the Summer. You might be wondering why I thought taking a 2 week trip to Europe in the months before my wedding was a good idea, but this trip was originally planned to […]

A Road Trip Down South

Our route brought us to Memphis, New Orleans, Houston, Dallas, and Austin. And if you know me, you know there were some state Capitol stops along the way. This trip allowed me to cross the state capitols of Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas off of my list!

A Night at Hotel Indigo

A few weeks ago, Jeff and I ventured back to one of our favorite cities to celebrate a beautiful couple as they tied the knot. For our evening in Madison, we opted to stay downtown, a few blocks away from the capitol, to get back into the Madison vibe and […]

Twenty Nineteen Resolutions

So here we are again. The beginning (kind of) a new year. I realize, as I’m writing this a few days into February, that 2019 is already underway, but this is better late than never. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been thinking about what it is that I want […]

A Look Back on 2018

2018, Imma let you finish, but I have a feeling that 2019 is going to be the best year yet! I always get so excited for NYE and moving into a New Year! I love time spent reminiscing and reflecting on the past year, and getting rejuvenated and refocused for […]

29 Things I Did, Saw, & Learned Before I Turned 29

Ahh, and just like that, I’m officially 29. Today, I’m entering the last year of my twenties with a good-vibes-only attitude, a full glass of wine (later tonight), and a solid plan for how I’m going to make my next year, the best year. Though there are plenty of great […]

I’m not sure if there’s anything that I love to do more than traveling to different cities, exploring all that they have to offer for food/drinks and fun, and doing it with my SO and two of our best friends! On our recent trip to Boston, we got to do […]

Bachelorette Weekend in Dallas

This year for the Fourth of July, I spent the holiday a little differently than I typically have in the past. The weekend before was the same, annual memorial golf outing with my family, a reunion-type event with relatives and long-time family friends, and a few nights at Summerfest enjoying […]

Trails, Beers, & Bites in Portland

I always have the itch to travel and explore new places in the world! I have a bucket list that involves visiting all of the State Capitols, but also that has an extensive list of cities I want to see and experiences I want to have. One of the cities […]

In the Fall, I took a trip out to San Francisco, CA. The primary reason for the trip was work-related for our Fall 2017 Sales Launch Meeting. I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to planning ahead two seasons as we do in the fashion world, but I’m working on it. Though […]

Deep in Dallas

Earlier this year, a few of my closest friends and I saddled up our carry-ons and headed south to Dallas, Texas for a long weekend. Our itinerary wasn’t fully-prepared but we had a few events in mind. The main one being Wrestlemania at Jerry’s House. But that wasn’t until Sunday… […]
