Roswell and I recently spent the night in Baltimore to see my favorite band from high school, New Found Glory. Conveniently, NFG seems to play in Baltimore around my birthday so I talked Roswell into taking the day off and spending some time exploring a little bit of Baltimore. Continue reading
Twice a year, RunChat hosts a photo scavenger hunt to seek out follower-submitted and selected items. You can see my previous Run Chat Hunt photos from December 2016 here. This time around I tried to challenge myself to limit myself to one photo per run (to increase my number of runs) and to attempt to think about the photos I was taking a bit more. I miss taking photographs like I used to do all of the time, so I wanted to put a bit more care into the photos I was taking, even if just for something fun like this scavenger hunt! I did alright limited myself to one per run, until I hit the last weekend and found three items during my long run. I also am happy with a majority of the photos I took. While there are some items like sunrise or sunset (simply because I don’t run that early [5:45] or late [8:45]!) or yard sale that were hard, so I took what I could get. My favorites of this batch were the local diner/restaurant and the public art (one of my favorites to photograph anyway!).

This is post continues our honeymoon series – I can’t wait to share them all with you! If you have any specific questions, just let me know in the comments below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
After spending three amazing days in Amsterdam and getting used to being on vacation, we packed up our bags and walked to the train station to catch our train to Brussels. One thing that I LOVE about Europe is the ease of getting around. I wish that we had trains in the States that could just take us to another country! In less than two hours, we had left the Netherlands and arrived in Belgium. Conveniently, our hotel was again right next to the train station (literally across the street) and we walked off the train and set off to our hotel. We stayed at the Park Inn by Radisson Brussels Midi and I worry that we may have been a little too spoiled by the Grand Amrath in Amsterdam. We thought the location was great being right next to the train station and a ten minute walk to our reason for going to Brussels (more on this later), but it was really far away from the main downtown area that we spent a majority of our time. The quality was okay, but nothing near where we stayed in Amsterdam (or even some hotels in the States).
This is the first of many different kinds of posts about our honeymoon – I can’t wait to share them all with you! If you have any specific questions, just let me know in the comments below or email me at email@example.com!
Nearly a year after getting married, Roswell and I finally packed our bags and embarked on our amazing trip. We knew that we wanted to go to Europe and actually had a honeymoon registry for our wedding in lieu of a traditional gift registry. Having an extra year to save also helped us truly make this an unforgettable trip. Continue reading
Last weekend was a busy one! On Sunday, Roswell and I headed out to explore the Zilker Botanical Garden for the first #TexasToDo InstaWalk with Texas Tourism, Visit Austin TX, and Elaine and Taylor, travel and lifestyle bloggers from Local Wanderer! Having recently moved to Austin, I’m still exploring and was stoked to visit the Botanical Garden since I hadn’t made it there yet. The garden was amazing, with a ton of different areas that we didn’t even make it to, and I can’t wait to go back and explore more!
If you’re interested in meeting cool people and taking photos (in the Austin area specifically), I would highly recommend following Visit Austin TX and IGAustinTexas on Instagram. They are always posting fun events that are coming up and it’s a great opportunity to get out and explore and meet new people!
We’ve been home a week from our honeymoon and I finally spent some time culling all of the photos I took over the two week period (over a thousand photos total). I wanted to share a few photos from the amazing places we visited while I wrote longer posts dedicated to each city. I can see below, I might have a bias towards one of the cities. We had such an amazing time, definitely learned a bit about the world and how we like to travel and we’re already looking forward to our next trip! Continue reading
To celebrate our one year wedding anniversary, I thought I would share some of my favorite photos from our wedding last year! We had an amazing photographer, Porter Watkins, that we loved working with! Definitely check her out if you’re looking for a photographer in the Washington D.C. metro area!
Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope everyone’s week is going well and you’re starting to look forward to the weekend! One reason I wanted to start a blog was to share some of my project life layouts. I love being able to look at others layouts in order to gain some inspiration, perspective and learn a little bit more about someone.
I am currently working in the digital format. Part of that is honestly due to money. I already have Photoshop thanks to my parents and I had bought a few digital Project Life collections that I could use over and and over again without needing to be replaced. I also like that I can make the page fit the photos I have – if I need an extra 4×6, I can create one in place of 2 3×4 pockets. I plan to have a photo book printed once the year is complete. I do miss the physical aspect though – I’m a definite paper hoarder with my business cards and ticket stubs. I am scanning some of these and including them digitally, but I also hope to add a pocket to the book when it done so I can include some of those physical mementos.
January was my first full month in Austin so we explored a lot and practically ate our way through the city!
This weekend is the final weekend of the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. and from what I hear, the blossoms are nearly at their peak. One of my favorite things to do every year was wake up ridiculously early and head down to the Tidal Basin to see the sun rise and capture some absolutely beautiful flowers. Today, I thought I would share some of my favorite shots I’ve taken of the cherry blossoms during my time in D.C.
