A Bay Area Break

Our big trip to  Italy  and the birth Fitz put my wanderlust on hold for awhile. I don’t like the idea of an airplane with a baby/toddler but I do need a break from the grind.  I am craving a short vacation in the bay area that includes: wine, friends, cheese, burritos, walking, the city and a beach. Hopefully we can…

The Perfect Red

Red lipstick is my go to look that makes me feel instantly together. It gives a pop to an outfit and a hop to my step.  I like a red/orange look personally. The only problem with red is that it can become such a mess! I should try one of those lipsticks that never come off that you see advertised all…

Hygge Away

This fall/winter I have mentioned the word cozy about 979,000. Half of those times, using the Danish word Hygge (pronounced HOO-GA). The word translates to cozy but more than that it is a way to be grounded in togetherness, community, light, comfort, warmth, and sweetness. The Danes have long dark winters and the Hygge way of life gets them through. …

Those times were tender and hard. The blue walls of this tiny room, felt to me, like they were caving in.  I was craving…

Babymoon

I love the idea of a Babymoon before the baby comes. Would you consider one? I love that it focuses on carving out time for just you and your partner before your baby comes to join. Our Italy trip was an epic vacation for the two of us and I’m so glad we did it when I could still wear a…

Tanzania – Safari

The last installment of our trip to Tanzania – SAFARI! We did two safari trips while we were in Tanzania. The first was to Lake Manyara National Park. We crammed 40 people from Rolina into a bus that was probably supposed to fit about 25 people. We saw some amazing animals that day, but the best part of the experience…

Tanzania – Shirikisha and Mt. Kili

So excited to share more of our experiences in Tanzania today.  When the wonderful kids at Rolina were at school during the day, Jeff, Zach, and I would spend time in the neighboring towns outside of KwaSadala. One of my favorite people in Tanzania (and maybe, the world) is Cocaya. She is incredibly smart and passionate and beautiful. She founded…
