It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’ve been MIA from this blog for quite some time (from the looks of my last post, since 2021!) Life has a way of taking unexpected turns, and in my case, it led me to a lengthy hiatus from this platform. Instead, I’ve channeled my energy into Instagram, which has been a fun and less formal outlet.
Instagram has allowed me to capture moments, express thoughts, and connect with an incredible community but, I’ve been itching to get back into the world of blogging!
My Insta feed is a kind of micro-blog. I’ve poured my heart and soul into those little captions, but there’s something about the long-form narrative that’s been calling out to me. On this platform, I can dive deeper into topics and details.
So, here I am, returning my roots. And in true form, starting with a FLASHBACK, to 2019.
Recently developed film from our southern Italy trip and love how the colors and light leaks turned out, here are my favorites from Positano:

Next up, I’ll be sharing our full 8-day road trip itinerary from San Francisco to Los Angeles! There’s so much information to compile, so it’s going to take a moment, but I’m excited to share it. It was truly a trip of a lifetime, and I don’t use that phrase lightly!
Yall! I’m doing it, I’m finally wrapping up our April Europe trip with this post! Without even trying, because it’s been in chronological order, I’ve saved the best for last :)
We really can’t brag enough about Fat Tire tour company! We love them and trusted them with a big percentage of our Spain and France trips. This tour was also through them and was definitely a highlight for me. It was a full day trip, 8.5 hours to be exact. We started with meeting at the storefront and packing up in a bus heading to Normandy, specifically a village called Vernon. When we arrived we walked to a mini storage that was so old and rustic it made America’s public storage facilities look like something out of 2089. From there we saddled up our bikes and hit up the Market of Vernon.
Not only were these strawberries seriously the best I’ve ever had, literally melting in your mouth, they smelled so fragrant too!
One of the activities we both definitely wanted to do while in France was go to Champagne country. We figured the easiest route was going through a tour company so we booked a day tour out to G.H. Mumm and Mercier through our go-to Fat Tire Tours. Champagne drinker or not, the trek out there and tour is worth it for all~ beautiful small towns, authentic French cuisine (paired with local champagne of course) and lots of history.
Well well well. Look who didn’t forget they went to France and took a bunch of photos..! I’m terrible you guys. Seriously live for the ease of Instagram these days. But I’ll probably always have this blog of trips and outfits past, who am I kidding.
