At Home

 “Oh darling, let’s be homebodies.” – Jenna Kutcher. While I love adventures around our city, there is just something I love about staying at home.  Most Friday nights, you’ll catch us chatting about our week over margs, eating tacos on the back patio, and catching some early z’s.  For a while, I felt bad about […]

The Motel

I’ve been driving the same highway just about everyday for the past two years and always had my eye on this place. The big neon sign and retro vibes pulled me in just strong enough to make me forget how creepy the place really is. The King’s Inn is one of a handful of motels […]

Cara Dillon

My sweet sister Cara volunteered (ok, I volun-told her) to be my guinea pig as I practiced some lifestyle photography.  She is beautiful and her room has the most incredible natural light, so I just had to snap a few the last time I was home. The gal pictured here is one of the strongest […]

Greenhouse Fun

We had been wishing and hoping to find a greenhouse near us for a while now.  Soft natural light and a colorful backdrop- dreamy combo right there.  We decided last Saturday to try one out. I saw it as we were driving by one day and had it tucked away in my back pocket for […]

Rain Walks

May in Wisconsin means potential for colder days.  We embraced the chill and ventured out into the cloudiness recently.  We spent some time at Picnic Point and had the place almost to ourselves- only a handful of people out on a day like that.  The rain let up a bit, but the fog lingered across the […]

Sunset Shots

D and I were downtown for Madison’s first annual night market. Taco trucks, boutique vendors, and live music all night long. We were so down. (But really, you had us at tacos) Usually I’m up on the Madtown happenings, but I actually had no idea about this one.  Thank goodness for Madison instagrammers that filled […]

Farmers’ Market Return

Easily one of my favorite parts about living in Madison- the farmers’ market. Finally, it has made its triumphant return for the 2017 season.  Bring on the flowers, cheese curds, fresh veggies, and sourdough baguettes! I finally purchased these flowers that I’ve had my eye on.  They are these beautiful dried flowers with some bold […]

Travel Planning

We bought our Europe tickets almost 7 months before our trip.  That was really our only solid, well-thought-out planning done for this adventure.  The rest was crammed in a couple hours, just 2 weeks before the trip 🙂 Honestly though, once the plane tickets are purchased the rest just falls into place.  We decided our […]

Airbnb Abroad

We loved our Airbnb in Amsterdam.  This place was so cool. Our host had such great style. We stayed just out of the city center in a super rad area.  Being mere minutes from all of the sites, while avoiding the touristy crowds was perfect for us. The comforts of home were just outside our […]

Paris

Part two of our trip brought us to Paris – the city of fashion, art, pretty people, and amazing architecture.  We spent our days visiting the popular spots like the Louvre, Notre Dame, and the Eiffel Tower and even caught mass at Sacré Cœur. Everything (and I mean everything) was so beautiful. From the Wedding […]
