What To Do in NYC with Kids: The New York Transit Museum

March 25, 2019

I am beyond excited to start this series for a number of reasons. First and foremost we love our city and sharing our favorite things to do here, especially with Owen. I realize New York City can seem really intimidating to live in or even visit with kids, but it doesn’t have to be. Over the past three years we have truly found some gems that make this city so much more approachable with little ones that I’ve been dying to share with you all. The second and kind of silly reason is, these pieces are so fun and natural for us to shoot. They give us a reason to get out of our usual routine and soak up what we love about our home, and most importantly, what our kiddo loves about our home!

Our First Trip To An All Inclusive Family Resort

October 17, 2018

You guys, we finally did it. We took a trip to an all inclusive family resort! I remember going to these as a kid on occasion, and loving it, but I hadn’t had the chance to experience it all from the parents perspective. And surprise, surprise it was amazing! All those trips to Mexico and the days spent at the “Mini Club” are making a whole lot of sense after our trip last weekend, hah. Kudos to you mom and dad!

5 Ways to Keep Your Home Safe While Traveling

September 19, 2018

Since Zack and I moved in together in college, he’s been a nervous nelly about leaving our home when we go on vacation and has always insisted that we, “leave a light on so people think we’re home.” He certainly had the best intentions, but since, we’ve learned that this can often signal the fact that no one is home just as much as a consistently dark home can if someone is watching close enough. While this line of thinking is definitely a step in the right direction, as our family has grown and we’ve welcomed more and more travel into our lifestyle, it’s become increasingly important that we take a more thoughtful and strategic approach to our safety.

One Carry-On, Ten Days in Europe

September 2, 2018

Today we’re off to Europe for ten days and we are beyond excited! Because we will be able to do laundry at each location and honestly, pride ourselves off of traveling light, I thought I would share how I’ve packed for a full ten days in just one carry-on. In all honesty there are more than ten outfits here if you continue to mix and match pieces, but since our trip is just ten days I focused on putting together just what I needed.

After a Year in the States We’re Heading To Europe, Again

August 28, 2018

This weekend we will be packing up our backpacks once again and heading to Europe. This time we won’t be selling all of our belongings, bringing our pup to our folks or moving out of our apartment, we’re just taking a normal vacation. It feels serendipitous that our first stop in Europe will be Paris (also our first stop on our long-term international travels last year). I have butterflies just thinking about it.

Home Meets Hotel in a Miami Oasis

May 10, 2018

A couple months ago we had an incredible opportunity to head south and check out Miami for a few days to work on a special project with Oasis. Oasis offers vacation rentals in hand picked homes, with hotel standards and high service. Think home meets hotel. After traveling and living in vacation rentals for the majority of last year, with a few hotel experiences sprinkled in between, Oasis is the perfect marriage of the two.

Prepping for International Travel with a Toddler

December 28, 2017

We head out next Tuesday to Mexico with my parents, brother and soon to be sister in law and we couldn’t be more excited! Despite Phoenix not necessarily being our home, we’ve been here for almost four months and it has definitely become our home base this last season. While we are beyond excited to establish our roots back in Brooklyn in two weeks, this vacation couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.

One Day in Phoenix with a Toddler

December 4, 2017

We’ve been visiting Phoenix since late September and will be here until just after the new year. It’s the city we lived in when we found out I was pregnant with Owen, it’s where Zack and I met in high school, where we got married and divorced and re-married, and where each of our families live. We’ve visited countless times in the last two years since Owen was born, but there’s something different about being here now that he’s officially in the toddler phase.

Watching Owen run through areas of Phoenix, a city that hold so much history for our little family, warms my heart beyond belief.
