Tasty Tie Tuesday

This is one of the most exciting posts I have personally had the pleasure of writing. I have had the opportunity to work with many wonderful, new clothing companies, but this is the first time I have had the chance to introduce you all to Pullman Hotels – a hotel chain you may have not previously heard of! As many of you already know, my husband and I live a very nomadic lifestyle. We do not actually own or rent a home,… Read more »

Shark cage diving

“Weren’t you scared?!” That is always the first question everyone asks when we tell them about our shark cage diving experience in Cape Cod. While being in the same waters as sharks should be terrifying, our shark cage diving adventure wasn’t the stuff nightmares are made of…it was actually a lot of fun. We saw one mako shark while we were still on the boat, and I think being in the water for that would have been rather frightening, as… Read more »

My first New York Fashion Week show is in the books! I had the opportunity to see the Angel Sanchez spring/summer 2016 collection, and it was absolutely amazing. I’m not even going to try and play it cool – I was in heaven and so excited I was able to get to see NYFW in person! (I’ll be on cloud nine for a while if you need me.) I’ll do my best to try and talk designers and fashion with… Read more »

Whale Watching Cape Cod

Whale watching in Cape Cod is easily one of the most incredible experiences of my entire life. The moment we made it to the whales’ feeding ground it was nonstop action. From the baby whales doing full breach after full breach, to the adults “waving” their fins and slapping their tails, there was hardly a moment where the whales were not visible. And sorry it took me so long to get this post together! But for the entire 2 hours… Read more »

Fenway

Boston is my new favorite city. I know I said that when I visited Philly – but seriously Boston is my favorite, without a doubt. I want to pack up and move there immediately! My husband and I were only there for a couple days and sorry, I wasn’t a very good blogger while I was there. This post will not do Boston nearly the justice it deserves. I didn’t take nearly as many photos as I should’ve, or keep… Read more »

The amount of things to see and do (and eat!) in Rome seems to be never ending. My husband and I spent two weeks wandering the streets of Rome last spring, and I feel as though we only saw a fraction of what Rome had to offer. I’ve covered the more famous tours and sights in previous posts. In this post I will take a final look at some of the smaller, quirkier tours we took and some of my… Read more »

The North Woods

This weekend I ventured to a place where I had no access to social media, no cell phone reception and no traffic – it was heavenly. It was just my family, the puppies and my husband and I all spending a lovely weekend in The North Woods. I’m now back in Jersey where we have lots of traffic, cell phone reception and access to social media. So, to relive my little getaway from civilization I decided to share my photos… Read more »

China: Through the Looking Glass

To break up our usual Sunday ritual of going to the gym and then binge watching Netflix, my husband and I decided to head into the city and explore The Met for the day. I’ve been dying to see their collection of Egyptian Art and their exhibit “China: Through the Looking Glass.” I will be breaking this post into 3 parts, based on the exhibits we toured, starting with “China: Through the Looking Glass” and ending with “Arms & Armor.”… Read more »

Today is my husband Zac’s 27th birthday! Happy birthday to the best husband in the world! We spent the weekend celebrating this special occasion. He LOVES to fish and has never been fishing on the ocean. So, we booked a charter trip with some friends through Jersey Key Fishing in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey. It was so awesome! This post is basically an excuse to show off some of our fishing pictures from the weekend. Haha. I apologize for the… Read more »

*If you like this post, it is now available on iTunes as a self-guided walking tour! Click here to download it. There are not many things in life that bring me quite as much happiness as the soft scent of lilacs tickling my nose in the breeze… or seeing the vibrant colors of tulips blooming in triumph, after patiently waiting for the frosts of winter to disperse. Flowers are one of the many joys of spring, and I have been… Read more »

*If you like this post, it is now available on iTunes as a self-guided walking tour! Click here to download it. “Grounds for Sculpture” is a sculpture garden that is quite close to where my husband and I live in New Jersey. We have been hearing about it ever since we arrived in the Garden State. It wasn’t until this past weekend that we finally made the journey to visit it. It has been by far our favorite adventure since… Read more »

It’s the most wonderful time of year…cherry blossom season! Ever since I moved to the East Coast I’ve been hearing nonstop how I need to visit Washington, D.C. when the cherry trees blossom. So, my husband and I figured we better make a trip when this happens! We planned our weekend by following the “Bloom Watch” website that let us know roughly when the peak bloom will happen. The National Park Service predicted that this would be between April 11-14…. Read more »

Our little, whirlwind trip up to New York City was nothing short of an unforgettable adventure. There are so many things to do and see in this city, sleeping seems like a silly waste of time (and as the title suggests, we hardly slept at all). I went to New York with my friends for a few days, after they were so kind as to help me move into my apartment. But before I talk about New York, I want… Read more »

After driving more than a thousand miles, we finally made it to the East Coast, and I am settled into my new home in Princeton! Wahoo! Sorry I haven’t been very active on the blog or my social media sites. These past couple weeks have been a crazy whirlwind, and I’m having a hard time sorting through it all to even know where to start! I think what I will do is talk a bit about our road trip, just… Read more »

It took me a few tries before I was finally able to write this post. I guess I am just in denial that we are actually leaving Stevens Point, Wisconsin…which has been our home for the past year and a half. I’m probably going to be a bit of an emotional wreck by the time I actually finish it. When my husband and I first found out we were moving to Stevens Point, I remember being very disappointed and thinking “What… Read more »

I don’t usually get too personal on my blog. I try to keep the content light and fun. However, for this post I’m going to take the time to explain my life a little better. I think a good starting point will be my wedding. That’s what the above pictures are of. As you can see, we didn’t have the big fairy tale wedding with the white dress. We were married in a courthouse, and I went shopping the night… Read more »

It’s been a while since I posted a travel post! I’ll explain why that is soon, but first, let me explain where we are in these pictures. The above pictures are of Indianhead Ski Resort in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We were invited by our friends to spend New Years at the resort with them. It was a wonderful time! I personally am a terrible downhill skier, so I opted for snowshoeing while everyone hit the slopes. My husband… Read more »

An ancient city complete with fast food restaurants, taverns, brothels, mansions, running water, a market, an amphitheater and a port… doesn’t really sound ancient at all. However, the city of Pompeii is nearly 2,000 years old. It is hard to adequately describe how incredible it is to walk the streets of this wonderfully preserved city. Don’t worry, though, I have plenty of pictures.

Home to the Pope, the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Basilica, countless extraordinary works of art in the Vatican Museums and yet, this country only has a population of about 800. This would undoubtedly make Vatican City the smallest country in the world. Don’t let its size fool you, though, there is an absolutely astonishing amount of history to explore in Vatican City. Many people seem to think you will not appreciate visiting Vatican City unless you are a devout Catholic…. Read more »

When in Rome… it is completely acceptable to eat until the buttons burst off your pants, and it is impossible to not be completely immersed in history. There are so many incredible sights and restaurants to explore in Rome, you could spend your entire life here and not experience it all. My husband and I spent a little over two weeks exploring Rome. We expected this vacation to be an adventure but not necessarily relaxing. We were quite wrong. I… Read more »

My husband and me in front of the Taj Mahal.

There were many things that surprised me about India, but the most amazing part of our trip was meeting so many unbelievably kind people. Everyone was so accepting and patient with us as they showed us the wonderful sights of India. It is an experience I will never forget. Wedding Festivities We made the journey here with some of my family for my cousin’s wedding. She was marrying a young man from Pune, India. The wedding festivities took roughly 4 days…. Read more »

After Foster City, our next move was to Oklahoma City. We arrived here just a week after the devastating tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma (a very short drive from Oklahoma City). It was heartbreaking to see the damage this tornado left behind. This was what sparked my interest in becoming a Red Cross volunteer. The volunteers were doing such a great job helping the displaced Moore residents. (However, I was not able to start volunteering until I returned to Wisconsin… Read more »

When in the Bay Area, it is a truth universally acknowledged that one must make the journey to Wine Country. Sonoma and Napa Valley are both charming in their own ways. And who doesn’t like roaming through picturesque vineyards and sampling tasty wines? My personal favorite vineyard was Cline Cellars. It was not only a vineyard, but also had an adorable little petting zoo and beautiful flower gardens.

Fishermans' Wharf

Our first official move in our quest for travel was to Foster City, California, near San Francisco. It’s a beautiful area, with many great parks, restaurants and a lovely running trail along the bay. We also spent our weekends exploring as much of San Francisco as we could. It’s a requirement to get a picture by the Golden Gate Bridge when you’re in San Francisco. Alcatraz   Alcatraz was one our favorite experiences in San Francisco. The audio tour of… Read more »
