Tea at the Fairmont Empress | Victoria, British Columbia

So here’s the thing. I’ve kind of had a mental block keeping me from getting back into blogging. When I look at photos from our trip earlier this year (in my first trimester), I instantly go back to feeling *soooo sick* and promptly give up. Aren’t brain associations such a crazy thing!? But […]

Bellagio Conservatory | Las Vegas, Nevada


The Bellagio really is a marvel to take in, even if you aren’t gambling. I’ve waxed poetic on the iconic fountains, but inside the casino is another non-gambling  Vegas favorite of mine. I thought I would share some photos of the mesmerizing glass flower art by Chihuly in the lobby, as well as […]

Albet i Noya Wine Tasting | Barcelona, Spain


When planning our visit to Spain, we had no intention of going wine tasting. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE wine, but it just wasn’t a priority for our time in Barcelona. After a tour with a great little tour company, we decide to peruse their other tours. We heard over […]

Next Stop: Adventures with a baby!

I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of [her] heart. I am. I am. I am.– Sylvia Plath I hinted a few posts ago that I have been exhausted. Which is true. The many long weekend trips this spring and summer have worn me out. But one thing […]

Game of Thrones Set | Girona, Spain


While in Barcelona, we took a day trip to the coast and were lucky enough to pass through Girona, Spain. It is a beautiful city by the River Onyar with a medieval walled Old Quarter. Best of all, we visited when they were wrapping up filming for the current season of Game […]

Aerial Tram | Portland, Oregon

Since I shared a few memories from Portland earlier this week, I thought I would continue with some images from the Portland Aerial Tram. If you’re looking to do this, it is important to know that it isn’t exactly a tourist attraction. It is an actual tram that takes doctors, […]

Base Camp Brewing | Portland, Oregon

I apologize that things have been quieter than usual around these parts! We have been traveling a lot so I am exhausted and keep feeling like I am getting more and more behind. (Which doesn’t help when I finally do get on the computer!) Anyway, I am making my best attempt to […]

The Travel Process (in GIFS)


The process of traveling, as told by some of my favorite characters. That itch sets in. And you decide on a destination. Pulling the trigger on that expensive plane ticket. Planning. And more planning. Last minute panic. Excitement. Starting your adventure! Finally getting through security. The reality of a long flight setting in. Landing. […]

Squaw Creek Ski Resort | Olympic Valley, California

I was in Lake Tahoe last month and I stayed at the breathtaking Squaw Creek Resort. It was so magical, complete with waking up my final morning to fresh snowfall (quite a bit of it, actually). Squaw Valley gets some great snow due to prime location, and as a bonus it […]

Hop on/Hop Off Bus | Barcelona, Spain

Warning: PHOTO OVERLOAD! While in Barcelona we did the hop on/hop off bus to get to know the city. (I am a big fan of these buses, as they are usually a relatively cheap way to take in the city and stop anywhere you like. Plus you get to hear some historical […]
