Italy:Tuscany

The last week of our trip we spent in Toscana. We were exhausted by the time we got into Florence and still had a drive into the countryside to reach the argroturismo Podere Spedalone. The long process was worth it! We rented this cute cream fiat and navigated through the windy hills of Tuscany late at night. We were welcomed…

Italy:Ischia

After Rome we took the train to Naples (Don’t stop in Naples…not recommended) and took a boat ride to the island of Ischia. Ischia is an island close to the famous Capri, but less touristy. Gardenia Mare, our Airbnb, was perched high on a hill but still close to everything because the island is small. We had dinner that first night…

Italy: Rome

Italy was an absolute dream vacation, and I’ll tell you why: Gelato, Pasta, Siestas in the afternoon, not in any particular order. We didn’t over schedule our days with sites to see but rather focused on 1-2 things a day. When you don’t feel rushed, stressed, or burdened by plans, you end up doing more than you thought possible.  Our…

A New Year

Today is our birthday! Our friend Alyce asked us what we wanted this year for our lives, or what we were looking forward to.  I said I wanted to be content with what I have. Where I am in life, the house, the job, just take the time to be grateful with what I have. I spend a lot of…

Summer Festivals in Denver

Growing up my Mom always took Shelby and I to festivals during the summer. What’s not to love? Free entertainment, people watching, and for us, growing up in Littleton, a break from the suburbs. Now we are lucky enough to be down the street from most of these festivals and a short drive from others.  Here are our top festival…

Italy Style Inspiration

We are leaving for Italy in two weeks! I plan on packing mostly dresses because they are easy to wear, pack, and perfect for strolling around and eating double gelatos and pasta in style. I love white in the summer and classic navy stripes with pops of red. I also want to bring a head scarf so I don’t have…

(Long) Weekend Getaway: Oahu

Hi friends, Shelby here.  I am sharing photos from our recent trip to Hawaii.  One of my close friends from law school grew up there and we were thrilled when she decided to have her wedding there.  Because Zach is teaching and is in the middle of the soccer season, we had to make it a quick trip. We arrived…

Rent the Runway

  Our dear friend Alyce got married a few weeks ago at the Oxford Hotel in Denver. Instead of buying a new dress that I would, let’s be honest, probably never wear again, I decided to rent a dress.  Rent the Runway allows you to rent designer dresses from a range of $20-$4,000. You can rent a dresses appropriate for…
