Salud-a!

One of the things I’ve been looking forward to most on this roadtrip are random turn-offs in the middle of nowhere. How often is it that you get to pull off at a little town of <1,000 people to chat with locals and learn some history? Erin & I had a long(ish) trek from Charlotte,…

Same City, Different Vantage Point

I felt like the view from the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence deserved it’s own post, so you get two gems for the price of one this week. Consider it in the spirit of #FlashbackFriday! Situated at the heart of the city, this ancient fortress/ palace/ guard-tower not only has incredible views of the city, but…

Florence (And The Machine)

This completely unrelated headline sounded clever a year ago when I first thought of it, but now I’m just eager to share some flicks from quite possibly my favorite city in Italy. Thanks to my amazing hosts, the Scarpellis (who just welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world… congrats guys!) I had an unbelievably…

D.C.anadian In The House

It’s a little anti-climactic that the first stop on my cross-country roadtrip was the distant and exotic land of Baltimore/ Washington D.C., but that’s where my cohort Erin is currently stationed, so I needed to swing by and scoop her up. Plus, her moms was eager to feed a sad, homeless kid… who can say…

Surfing USA

Like my boy Bueller once said: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and blog about it for a while, you could forget the details.” I may have remixed that quote a tad, but ain’t it pretty close to the truth? It’s been a looong time since I’ve consistently written on here… partially because of work…

#HASHTAGLUNCHBAG: DONE.

#HashtagLunchbag is a movement that’s been near and dear to me for some time now. Started by a few amazing friends in LA about a year and a half ago, the notion of #livinghthroughgiving has spread like wildfire thanks to social media & the power of the interwebs. Today, over 70 cities around the world participate monthly…
