Fall colors outside of Denver, Colorado

A fall weekend in Denver

We spent last weekend in Denver, and it was exactly the fall foliage dream that I was hoping for. We had a few reasons for wanting to visit Denver: a few different sets of friends recently relocated there from the East Coast, it was a city we had...

Last week, I wrote about the places that I recommend most in the USA. Although I do feel strongly about the importance of seeing your own country (especially when it's one as diverse as the United States), I'm also so grateful for my experiences...

The places I recommend most (in the USA)

Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn

Why it’s worth visiting Brooklyn

Notes on loving, and leaving, New York

"It is easy to see the beginnings of things, and harder to see the ends. I can remember now, with a clarity that makes the nerves in the back of my neck constrict, when New York began for me, but I cannot lay my  finger upon the moment it ended, can...
