VEGAS BABY #slaycation2018 – girls weekend in Las Vegas [32]

As soon as we knew we'd be moving to the West Coast, my best friend and I started planning a Vegas trip. It's one of her favorite places to visit, and I'd never been before, so it seemed like the perfect destination for a girls' weekend. We went during Presidents' Day weekend, from Thursday until … Continue reading VEGAS BABY #slaycation2018 – girls weekend in Las Vegas [32]

brunch, music, OAK/SF [28]

Early December finally gave us a little bit of downtime to relax and explore more of our own town.

touchdown jesus and melty cheeses : south bend & chicago [8]

Friday morning saw us driving from Cleveland to Chicago. Because my family (except myself, naturally) is full of Notre Dame sports fans, I wanted to stop in South Bend to pay my respects to Touchdown Jesus: Max, a Purdue alum, was less than thrilled (thanks, babe, for being a good sport!) so I promised him … Continue reading touchdown jesus and melty cheeses : south bend & chicago [8]

cat in a bag: boston, part 2 [3]

Thanks for sticking with me on that journey through the feels about Fenway. Onto the rest of Boston: the FOOD. After the game, we walked up to Cambridge - a beautiful walk on a summer evening. The view from the Mass Ave bridge is stunning at night. My iPhone camera certainly does not do it … Continue reading cat in a bag: boston, part 2 [3]
