Gasthaus Geraniums

Bill & I are nearing our 1st Anniversary as Mr & Mrs and that means we’re SO CLOSE to our European honeymoon (Anniversary-moon?)

DIY Travel Jewelry Box from an Old iPod Packaging

If you’ve ever purchased an apple device of any kind at the Apple store, you’re likely familiar with the joy of ‘unboxing’ — the simple act of getting to open your brand new device.  Apple takes care not only to design beautiful products, but even puts detail into their packaging too, making that first time… Continue reading DIY Travel Jewelry Box from an Old iPod Packaging

Christchurch Priory & Palm Trees

FORTUNATELY, Christchurch delivered.  Many times.  But this particular palm was a beaut.  As is the lass modeling with it. So now that the trip is legit, lets move on.… Continue reading Christchurch Priory & Palm Trees

Parisian Perusing

All this week we’re sharing inspiring decor from Europe because, well, after MONTHS of planning I am FINALLY there!  By now I’m likely ogling the designer labels through shop windows while filling an entire memory card with pictures of the Eiffel tower alone. Speaking of, this iconic Parisian landmark is quite the point of inspiration… Continue reading Parisian Perusing

NPS Stamps – Hopewell Furnace NHS

Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday! Bill and I spent Christmas outside of Philadelphia with my family, but to get here we first had to traverse nearly the entire state of Pennsylvania from Pittsburgh to Philly. We figured rather than rushing across, we’d break apart the 6 hour trip and detour to a National Park, much… Continue reading NPS Stamps – Hopewell Furnace NHS

Road Trip to Cincinnati – Part 2: We Do It For the Stamps. And the Sports.

Did you hear the one about the unstamped letter? You wouldn’t get it. Ba-Dum-Cheech! No, I don’t mean postage stamps, I mean stamp cancellations.  In a passport.  Specifically, the Passport to Our National Parks.  It’s a passport containing information and a (nearly) complete list of every National Park in our nation’s system. I was first… Continue reading Road Trip to Cincinnati – Part 2: We Do It For the Stamps. And the Sports.
