Gum Wall | Seattle, Washington

If you are looking for something different to do in Seattle, may I recommend a quick visit to the gum wall? Chances are, you are closer to it than you might think. It is just around the corner from Pike Place Market. Sure, it is a little gross, but it […]

Space Needle | Seattle, Washington

Behold, the iconic Space Needle! I have been to Washington many times, and this was my third time going up into the Space Needle. I know it is a tourist attraction, (not exactly off the beaten path), but it is still a lot of fun to go up and see […]

HIGHWAY 1 ROAD TRIP | Bixby Creek Bridge | Big Sur, California

Our little California road trip was so much fun. I knew I definitely wanted to stop at Bixby Creek Bridge in Big Sur. The views were phenomenal and did not disappoint. In case you are planning a trip, there is a little parking lot (limited spots) where we stopped to […]

Highway 1 Road Trip | Pfeiffer Beach | Big Sur, California

*** WARNING: DOG OVERLOAD! *** A few months ago we hit the road for my 30th birthday trip up the California coast. Zora came along for the adventure and we met my best friend near the Redwoods. I’ve always wanted to drive up Highway One and see more of the […]

Palace of Fine Arts | San Francisco, California

Happy first day of December! I am still playing catch up, so I thought I would share a wonderful little San Francisco gem with you, the Palace of Fine Arts. The Palace of Fine Arts was built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition and was so popular it has remained at the same […]

San Francisco City Views from Twin Peaks | San Francisco, California

I have been to San Francisco many times, but Twin Peaks has always eluded me. On our first visit this year, I made sure we would have a chance to take in the iconic view! It is a steep climb to the top by car, but the views are well […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
