One of the reasons why I blog is simply to have the space to write: getting things “on paper” helps me to process my feelings and organize my thoughts. I also love having a record of my life over the past few years: a place that holds all of my stories, my photos, the ups and downs of travel. But sometimes, I also just want to remember and share the little things that brought me day-to-day joy. Every Friday, I’ll give you a peek into the book I currently can’t put down, a great restaurant discovery, a fun new product or an inspiring quote: a few things that I think you might enjoy before we all take off into the glory that is the weekend!

Turquoise building in Tribeca, New York City

This week was basically the week of cancelled plans: the kind of cancelled plans that when it happens, you breathe a huge sigh of relief because that means you have a few unexpected hours to just chill.

Postcard from West Hollywood

The main reason why we went to Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago? To visit friends! Both my boyfriend and I have quite a few friends in the LA area, and while we didn’t get to see nearly as many of them as we would have liked–we learned valuable lessons about the intricacies of […]

Everyday photo cards: giveaway!

It’s no secret that I love snail mail: it’s one of those gifts that is just as fun to give as it is to receive. Who doesn’t love getting something in the mailbox that isn’t junk or bills? And as much as I swear by thank-you notes and birthday cards, one of my favorite reasons […]

Postcard from Venice Canals

If there was one thing that completed surprised me in the best possible way on my recent trip to Los Angeles, it was the Venice Canals. A few LA locals had recommended checking them out, so when the friends we were staying with suggested a bike ride through the Venice Canals on the way to […]
