My favorite female-led businesses to support

I’m a big believer in experiences over things, and that I’d rather have fewer, better things. Perhaps my favorite tradition is one that my now-fiance and I started last year: instead of getting each other a big gift, we treated each other to a trip to Costa Rica.

A weekend in Amelia Island

Amelia Island is one of those under-the-radar gems that you can’t believe you’ve never heard of before–or, at the very least, I couldn’t believe that it took me so long to hear about it. Located off the coast of Northeast Florida (about a 45-minute drive from Jacksonville), the island is a mix of Florida beaches and Southern […]
