Visiting Oahu, Hawaii

In November Crosby and I did the unexpected (by us, anyway – everyone else seemed to expect it!) and eloped on Oahu, at Turtle Bay on the North Shore. It was a stunning experience and I blogged about it here. The entire stay was incredible and I thought I’d share a bit more from our … Continue Reading →

We Eloped! Getting Married at Turtle Bay on Oahu’s North Shore

Spoiler alert: we eloped! On November 22, 2017, Crosby and I tied the knot at Stables Beach of the Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu’s North Shore with two of our best friends. So how did we arrive on that? Did we expect to elope? Let me tell you, we did not expect to elope. Crosby … Continue Reading →

The Importance of Summer Vacation

For years earlier in my career, I didn’t believe in taking time off. I wore my lack of vacation like a badge of honor, recognized only by myself. Time and time again, people I worked with asked where I was going that summer. I’d proudly proclaim that I was staying close to the office, which … Continue Reading →

NYC on the Regular: Packing & Health Tips

In my current role, I travel to New York once or twice a month. I’ve been there in December when the city is all dressed up for the holidays and during the random March blizzard…and now during the hot, green, summer months. Each season has its challenges but here are a few of my strategies … Continue Reading →

Getting Ready For Summer + the Best Black Top

I booked my trip to Italy in June today. There’s something totally thrilling about just booking a vacation: imagining the sun, sand and water of Tropea (more here and here) and the amazing friends and food in Modena (here) that just puts me into another gear. And I don’t just mean excited gear this time. The … Continue Reading →

(Follow along on Instagram for more from the trip.) I’ve traveled many places for work, including NYC, but never at this time of year. In … Continue Reading →

A Place Like Home

At age 14 I visited Italy with my mother. It was a magical trip filled with delicious food, interesting/beautiful sights and sweet moments for us together. I was hooked. Five years later at 19 I chose to study abroad in the Northern Italian town of Modena, home of balsamic vinegar and birthplace of Ferrari – … Continue Reading →

A Day in Florence, Italy

I’m fresh back from a dreamy vacation in Italy. I spent much of the time in Modena (more here) and in Tropea (more here), but for my last day I took a solo trip to Florence. Just 1 hour by train from Modena, I was able to leave after breakfast and return in time for the evening … Continue Reading →

Winter Getaway: Carmel Valley

I’ve written before about the importance of downtime (here) and I’ll probably come back to it each year about this time. Winter for me is  a time for reflection and regrouping. This is the second year I’ve taken a weekend away – this time to Carmel Valley, Calif. at Bernardus Lodge. Between walks with the dogs … Continue Reading →

Dressing for travel can be tricky. The desire to be comfortable is strong for me – no matter if I’m traveling for work or personal – but looking sharp is still important. This outfit has literally taken me around the world; on flights in Asia for work and to New York for fun. The ease … Continue Reading →
