Personal: Remembering The Journey + Staying Thankful

  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone living in the United States! I have been meaning to write this personal post for a while, but found Thanksgiving to be the perfect opportunity to share it.   One of the biggest reasons I did not want to make the leap into becoming a full-time blogger is because of the crippling fear that I would lose site of my…

Personal: My Baby Turns One

I didn’t write this post ahead of time, because I wanted to write exactly how I feel in this moment on this big day, my baby’s first birthday. I never realized how meaningful birthdays were to the moms until I became one. He has no idea what today is, or what it means and I have been an emo lunatic leading up to it. Exactly…

Personal: Has The Blogosphere Ruined Travel?

I’ve had the same conversation with multiple bloggers in the same week (Dany & Tim) and it made me realize it’s something I’ve been thinking about myself .

Personal: Are These The Best Years Of My Life?

After graduating high school, I used to visit home from college and curl up in bed with my old journals. I would read about nights I broke curfew and thought it was funny, skating miles and miles just to get ‘hot now’ donuts at Krispy Kreme and old and now meaningless moments with young crushes who exited life as quickly as they entered.

Personal: Has Instagram Changed My Lifestyle Choices?

“I did it for the gram” is a phrase most people on social media (not just influencers!) have probably said in the past year or two. While I was eating at ‘cookie do’ in NYC, alone on a park bench with other random strangers taking pictures of their sickeningly sweet “cookie dough” in a cup, I started to think a lot about my habits, and…
