From Austin to Seattle, With Love!
I have finally ticked off one of my American travel goals! During the week of the 4th of July, we packed up our bags and are headed to the Northwest! Goodbye Austin, hello Seattle!
Weddings are one of my favorite events to attend! There is something so special about baring witness to the exchanging of vows between two people in love.
It's so funny how sometimes the most beautiful things are hidden in the most unexpected places. During a recent trip to Miami, I was introduced to Cauley Square, a little-hidden gem in South Miami.

Meandering Around St. Pete
There's nothing I love more than walking around and just getting lost in a city. St. Petersburg is such a beautiful city with a temperate climate and crystal clear waterways. There is the Dali Museum and wonderful local restaurants with a Spanish flair.

While they are very well maintained, there are only pockets of lighted spots. Once the sun goes down, you have … Continue reading Just a Few More Hours

“Fast Food or NOTHING” Hour
The majority of the drive from Texas to Florida is done on I-10 and one of my favorite stops along the way in New Orleans! About an hour outside of New Orleans, you'll find the Louisiana state capital, Baton Rouge. This is also home to Louisiana State University (LSU) and where you find college students, … Continue reading “Fast Food or NOTHING” Hour
