Blazers and Pearls

Not going to lie, I’m getting a little stir crazy with all this snow. While most of the country is well into their spring-time months, Maine is still fighting the good “snowball” fight. Come late March/ early April, my wardrobe starts feeling smaller and smaller. I’ve even found myself buying cute little sundresses that won’t be wearable for at least another month. However, when I start …

Backpacking: Leipzig to Berlin

Leipzig Well with my return trip to Germany coming up in just a few weeks, I figured I better finish off this first backpacking trip series! I know it’s been a long time coming, but we’d planned the final stop in our trip to be Berlin. We had it all figured out! Take a night train from Munich at about midnight, which would put us …

Cool Winter Colors

Well, so far winter has surely got the best of me this year. Between the snow and cold, I’ve felt a heck of a lot less motivated lately. However, it could have something to do with the fact that I’ve recently moved! As I’m sure you’re aware, packing up everything you own and moving it to another town takes a lot out of you. Especially when …

Cozy Weekend Away

We’ve arrived at the holiday weekend and I can’t help but reflect on all the wonderful things that have happened this year. I’ve experienced a backpacking trip through Germamy, a roadtrip through Ireland, and many other life-changing surprises. To cap off each year, we always spend a weekend at the Liberty Hotel in Boston. Returning to our old neighborhood of Beacon Hill is one of …

Backpacking: Munich

Louis Hotel in Munich Part three of our backpacking trip was a four day stopover in Munich. As the city that we were most looking forward to experiencing, I was not disappointed. Walking through Munich for the first time was a surreal experience. The city is so vibrant and full of life that I couldn’t wait to explore further. No where is there more quintessential charm than …

Extra Layers Needed!

I have to say that I’m loving that it’s okay to dress casually again. The older I get the more I just want to feel warm and cozy all the time and it can be a difficult status to achieve. In Maine, we have two variations of the annual fall to winter hand off. Some years it’s full blizzard on day one, but more often than …

Gilmore Girls: Need to Catch up?

“Oy with the poodles already!” This post is completely off message, but close to my coffee-loving heart! With the recent release of new Netflix season of Gilmore Girls: Year in the Life, I’ve been trying to quickly review everything that happened in seasons one through seven. While I wanted to make sure I was fully caught up for  the release, I didn’t have time to …

Backpacking: Würzburg to Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Hotel Würzburger Hof Arriving in Würzburg felt very different than arriving in Cologne. While Cologne had been a small city, Würzburg was absolutely a small town and had that local, out of the way feel. We were lucky that we had found a hotel that was an easy walk from the train station. Hotel Würzburger Hof was a delightful, boutique inn that was located right …

Double Trouble with Double Plaid!

By this point, I’m sure you’ve all busted out your favorite Fall layers in an attempt to stay warm. I don’t know when it happened, but it’s so cold now! Most of my cold weather layers from previous years were all stripes, but this year I’m definitely feeling a pull towards plaid. Old Navy has been on point this year with their seasonal plaid styles. Between …
