    Pike Place Market Seattle

    On one of Austin’s only days off (and few chances to sleep in) during our time living in Oregon, we woke up early anyway. There was a new place to explore an another adventure to have.

    Travel Mamuye Tote Adventure Essentials

    It seems like I’ve spent much of my current adult life searching for the perfect tote. The Madewell Transport tote is a classic choice, but, when I decided to only purchase clothing and accessories that were ethically made, I had to continue my search. As a traveler, I knew that the tote that I chose as […]

    Multnomah Falls

    Early morning in Oregon. Our little apartment was empty. Our suitcases were packed. We had an airplane to catch before heading off to our next home in South Carolina. Before bidding Oregon a fond farewell, however, we had one last adventure ahead of us. With all of our current belongings in the back of the […]

    Birkenstock Arizona Sandals

    I love sandals. Growing up in Southern California, I rarely wore anything else. When temperatures hardly drop below 60 degrees Fahrenheit, what reason is there to give up the freedom of sandals for close-toed shoes? As a kid, I pretty much wore Birkenstocks exclusively. I remember this pair that I had that were blue with […]

There’s just something so perfect about the sunshine days and how the desert turns to mountains turns to beaches. I love driving along the coast and watching surfers in the vast Pacific. Driving through other states just […]
