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 […]

Chicago

Since being engaged and planning a wedding back home in Illinois, it feels like we are weekend commuters.  So many Fridays, D and I roll out of Madison and into Chicago late at night and make the return Sunday.  Most of those trips are spent in the suburbs, which don’t get us wrong, we love. […]

Fourth of July

This summer has just flown.  Maybe it’s wedding planning, maybe it is just the post college life.  But, the fourth just seemed to pop up this year.  We had a busy start to our summer months, and I think now we have some relaxing weekends ahead of us.  I’m hoping to crank out some more […]
