Weekend in the Country

Hey friends! We are back in DC after a fun weekend trip - Matt, Riese, and I spent the weekend at The Homestead hotel in Warm Springs, Virginia. We had a blast - we were with our friends Lily, James, and their toddler Hank; Hank is only a month younger than Riese so it was perfect because we were on the same schedule with naps and early Continue Reading …

Adventures in Food and Farming

I’m back with a recap from the press trip I attended last week in California, hosted by The Alliance for Food and Farming! A huge thank you to them for having me on the trip, for sponsoring this post-event blog recap, and for covering my travel expenses.

West Coast Livin’

Hi from beautiful Monterey, California! As I mentioned in my last blog post, I'm out here for a press trip that starts today, but I came early to see my grad school friend Lauren!

I'm back for my final Outer Banks beach vacation recap.  If you missed my first two beach updates, they are here: Making Waves + 4th of July in Duck, OBX.  Vacation with a toddler wasn't exactly relaxing like vacation used to be, but it was definitely a lot of fun. :) We got back to DC on Sunday and are now Continue Reading …

4th of July in Duck, OBX

Matt, Riese and I had a really fun 4th of July at the beach in the Outer Banks! (If you missed my first beach recap, check it out: Making Waves.) We kicked off America's Birthday with an adorable parade that the town of Duck puts on every year. We skipped it last year because Riese was only 7 months but thought it would be fun to check it out Continue Reading …

Making Waves

Hi from the beach! We are here in Duck in the Outer Banks in North Carolina. We come every summer for a week with Matt's family and some friends, and it's always one of my favorite weeks of the year! It's especially fun this year because Riese is big enough to really enjoy the beach! She's LOVING it - she's super into the waves and loves Continue Reading …
