    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...

    We had so much fun the whole week before and after hitting this city.
    To check out our preplanning, click here, Day 1 click here, and Day 2 pt 1 Myrtle Beach and Charleston, click the city names.
    (Prints of the photo below, because I'm in love with it, are available here.)

    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)

    Posted on
    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 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.

    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...

    Been enjoying planning the most amazing road trip possible for us this summer. 
    We want to go all along the Northeast coast from Baltimore to New Orleans, with a bunch of stops in between (Wilmington, Charleston, Savannah, Panama City Beach, and more)
    Here's a little preview of the route:

    I'm using this app called Roadtrippersto scout out everywhere we want to go- it links to Google Maps or the Apple...

    Happy Wednesday. Been yawning through this week.

    Super Bowl LII was a pretty tight game this year, I enjoyed it.
    This Doritos Blaze and Mountain Dew Ice commercial was one of my favorites!
    When Game of Thrones comes back I'm thinking of watching with one in each hand (because Fire and Ice).

    Did you know my photography is on Getty iStockPhoto (as well as Shutterstock)? Enjoy

    Started off the year at Sagamore Pendry and had the best time. There was a light dusting of snow, complimentary Sagamore Rye Whiskey Cider, and free brunch and water taxi ride.
