Our semi-elopement wedding in NYC: photos + details

When we scheduled a March wedding, I anticipated that I'd be wearing a fur coat and snowboots, or that my parents' flights would get delayed because of a blizzard. Instead, the weather was 70 degrees! It started raining the minute we stepped inside...

Seven years of daring to dream

Seven years ago today, I published the very first post on this blog. Since then, I've written more than a thousand blog posts--about places I've been and what I'm reading and all of the twenty-something-in-the-city feelings. I started my very first...

How to: be more productive

One thing that’s worth reading

One book that I recommend purchasing for your nightstand: Gift from the Sea. Although it was written in the mid 1950's by Anne Morrow Lindbergh (wife of famed aviator Charles), so much of it still resonates today--especially as a woman who strives to...
