Whether it’s spots like Las Cruces or Santa Fe, new explorations in Tucson or planned trips to Albuquerque and Page, we are going to have plenty to do and we will be spoiled! Another area that I feel truly blessed to be near is the wonderful state and national … [Read more...]

J’adore #69 – Eco-Friendly Finds

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that Mama Nature is not particularly happy at this moment in time. The recent number of hurricanes, earthquakes and other natural disasters means that eco-friendly, sustainable products need to become the norm rather than the exception.

Currently September 2017

Currently | 9.21.17 Watching | Game of Thrones > Just finished season 4! So much better the second time around.

Traveler Tuesday – Adelina of Pack Me To

I love doing this series as I truly get to "meet" a lot of truly remarkable people. Which is true in Adelina's case.

Weekend Explorations: Things to do in Tucson

Let me just get this out of the way. Tucson is awesome! It only took one weekend in town to fall completely head over heels in love. And we are already planning to return.  We knew when we started researching things to do in Tucson that there was way too much to see in a single weekend, but trust me, we made a valiant effort! Okay, clearly I need a lot more practice taking photos in front … [Read more...]

San Francisco Profiles – San Francisco’s Western Addition/Japantown with Paroma

A little piece of my heart and soul will always belong to San Francisco and despite moving out of the area and settling into Phoenix, I will still visit.  San Francisco is a thriving, ever-changing city, one that takes lots of time to explore thoroughly, which is why I am still making my way through the neighborhoods with my San Francisco Profiles series.

Traveler Tuesday – Kit of The Kittchen

My first day at BlogHouse in Indianapolis I had the pleasure of sitting next to Kit of The Kittchen.
