  • Just an average Wednesday enjoying my morning coffee and planning my next getaway. Can you believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving?! Time sure has a way of flying by.
  • “Your 20’s are your ‘selfish’ years. It’s a decade to immerse yourself in every single thing possible. Be selfish with your time, and all aspects of you. Tinker with shit, travel, explore, love a lot, love a little, and never touch the ground”
•
Raise your hand if you’re living up those ‘selfish’ years in your best way! 🙌🏻 I might be edging closer to the big 3-0 (say what?!) but I’m not slowing down just yet!
  • “The diversity, the food, the culture, the constant change—New York is truly one of the most inspiring places on the planet” -XXMK

It’s as if you can experience the whole world in a New York minute when you’re walking the city streets. There truly is no place like NYC.
  • These hearts of ours were meant to travel the world.  Adventures are just a little sweeter when I get to experience them with him. NYC, you’re a concrete jungle of dreams. Until next time, xo.
  • Sunday’s at Tiny’s. #Tribeca #NewYork
  • Catching the morning flight to NYC! It won’t be cobblestone streets in old European cities, but it’ll be a concrete jungle so we’re good. Cheers to an adventure-filled weekend, friends!
  • Fell in love with Canada all over again this fall. And now it’s been named destination of the year!  I’m already planning my next trip! Oh Canada, you are a gem.

Just a couple months ago I went on my first solo trip to Europe.  Traveling has quite literally breathed new life into me, and I absolutely love seeing this world with my husband by my side. But what did I learn when I had to go it alone for the first time?
•
I learned that my gut IS always right. I learned the best way to step out of your comfort zone is when there is no safety net. I learned that there is tremendously more “good” in people than “bad.” And, I learned that my own company...well, it actually is pretty darn great!
•
My solo trip was the most life-changing, liberating experience I’ve had to date.  Im telling you, you have to do it once in your life. Because what is life without adventure? I hope I never find out.
  • Some days go so fast you forget to take a breath. Other days go by slowly and you take it all in. I could use a slow-paced day with beautiful views. Is it Friday yet?
  • Hello, Sunday.✨
