    4 Things to Do on the 4th of July in Annapolis, MD

    Posted on
    Did you know Annapolis was the capital of the United States, before Washington D.C.?
    So it seemed fitting for our Fourth of July to explore Maryland's Capital, and America's Sailing Capitol.

    There is so much history here. Driving in is idyllic and calm, the Naval Academy dominates a lot of the landscape downtown, but there is also a lot to do near the harbor and Main street as far as sightseeing and...

    Going South from Georgia, we stopped in Jacksonville and discovered a place called Taco Librethat had the most incredible, huge $3 horchatas and tacos. This was the only restaurant that prompted us to take leftovers with us on the road. And let me tell you, eating pork tacos...

    Savannah was a great place to be immersed in Southern Gothic-ness and it's own definite culture. We've heard so many things from...

    A Day in Charleston, South Carolina (DAY 2 pt2)

    Posted on

    Here is a video montage of our morning biking through this wonderful city. A lot of people visiting Charleston South Carolina, choose to rent bikes and go by the water, and I completely understand why, now. This is the third part of our earlier road trip posts along the East Coast (see also, Virginia Beach and Wilmington, and Myrtle Beach).

    Stayed at the Spectator Hotel, easily...

    Surprises at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (DAY 2 pt1)

    Posted on
    DAY 2 of our East Coast Road Trip is split up because of just how much happened when we hit the Carolina's. (DAY 1 on Williamsburg, Virginia Beach, and Wilmington here)

    The rain was coming down really hard, the morning we set off for Myrtle Beach. This city is on South Carolina’s Atlantic coast, and the hub of the Grand Strand, a 60-mile string of beaches. The plan had been to get toes wet at the...

    Williamsburg, Virginia Beach, and Wilmington (DAY 1)

    DAY 1

    Let me just preface by saying that we planned this entire road trip for a long time! (for example, this entry from February). Lots of hand-scrawled notes and maps and google spreadsheet formats. Right on the cusp of our thirties, we really wanted to make the most of this trip and hope you enjoy the tips we found useful.

    Woke up bright and early Wednesday morning before Memorial Weekend to...

    New Spring Photos on Shutterstock

    Posted on
    Nothing better than a bright, sunny day in the park with chips. Those and hot dogs are my dream summer diet.
    (FAVORITE BBQ CHIPS are Utz Kettle Classics Smokin' Sweet BBQ Crunchy Potato Chips.)

    Been taking photos around Maryland through the fall and winter so far this year (here's when I posted some in January).

    Just added some new Spring photos to my Shutterstock Profile!

    So so so excited for the...

    New Summer Items!

    Posted on
    We have almost twice as many products on the site now, ready for your strong start to the upcoming Summer months. I hope you're going to travel, dream, and explore. That's what I want for myself and everyone I know. After a pretty rough winter, it just seems like time to overcompensate and truly soak up the nice weather.

    Enjoying the ☀️

    Posted on
    Little Havana Restaurante y Cantina off of Key Highway in Baltimore is just a short walk from Riverside Park to the water. Like I wrote in my Presidents Day Brunch Post- there's the coolest huge mural on the wall here with a handwritten headline 'Land of Eternal Spring'. We were definitely in the mood to enjoy the Spring weather, and hopefully it'll stick! It was an ideal date. Not too hot or...

    Walt Disney World Resort Memories

    Posted on

    This time last year, we were in front of where Harry Truman used to hang out in Florida on a family vacation to Disney World. It was my first time, a bucket list item.

    RIP Barbara Bush. Half of another Gemini couple (George Bush Sr. and her were the longest married presidential couple), and someone who accomplished an incredible amount in her life. She said in 1990 Wellesley College commencement...

    Visiting Our Old High School

    Posted on

    This post is dedicated to Jenny Lai and her unique, positive vision for herself and everyone around her. We met living down the hall from each other at our arts boarding high school in Natick, MA. We'd have dance parties in her room, hang out in practice rooms, explore together. She always knows what I need, often before I do. My first time in New York was with her to scope out whether we'd want...

    Weekend Hiking at Ricketts Glen ️

    Posted on
    Spent this weekend camping with Mark's family at Ricketts Glen State Park. It's one of the most beautiful places I've seen, with over 22 waterfalls and 13 acres out a few hours from Baltimore, in Pennsylvania. We did this same trip in April last year, when it was warmer. This time, there was still snow on the ground, but it was nice to see the woods in a different way, and feel the crunch under...

    California Weekend | Cinequest 2018 & Seeds

    Posted on

    Mark and I went to California this weekend! The purpose was to see my sister, and attend the ‘Seeds’ film premiere at Cinequest Film Festival. Made it into San Francisco Thursday night and had dinner at ‘wonderful’ a really delicious Hunan Chinese restaurant in Millbrae. Her boyfriend knew the menu well- we had a great time. I’m very proud of the life she’s made for herself there and was happy to...

    Presidents Day Brunch and 'Seeds' Film Teaser

    Posted on
    Spent Presidents Day with literally some of the nicest women I've met since moving to Baltimore. It's one of the most therapeutic things to just talk for a long time, with a good meal and cup of coffee. Here's to more Monday's off.  
    The outside of Order & Chaos has 'a creative cup of coffee' written out on the wall, and I definitely feel revitalized and inspired after a day like this. Little...

    This Time Two Years Ago (I Did an Interview)

    Posted on
    Around this time two years ago, I did this fun photo shoot and interview with Eliza (Aesthetic Distance) at Hotel Monaco. I'd just moved to Baltimore and thought this lady was so smart and knew everything about the city. Now that Seeds is coming out - I thought I'd re-share some excerpts, below.

    You have a really impressive filmography. Can you tell me about how you got into acting?
    I was a quieter...
