Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Friday we moved to Cleveland. Bryan drove for 9 hours and we checked into our extended-stay hotel indefinitely. We met with our phenomenal realtor Saturday morning and viewed some very promising rental properties. Our favorite will not be available until July 1st so that will mean two more weeks of hotel life (which isn’t all […]

Rome, Italy

Rome is the quentessential site for Italian site seeing, in my mind. I was intimidated by the city, but knew I would kick myself if I visited Italy without seeing Rome. We stayed in another airbnb, and it was the cutest little apartment with great natural light and a loft bedroom. We had a bad […]

Florence, Italy

Buongiorno! This morning we said goodbye to Florence after a four night stay in the wonderful city. It was the longest we’ve been in one city so we got to unpack a bit more. We stayed in a pretty local area, but still within a 15 minute walk from all attractions. The city was crowded […]

Venice, Italy

Today we are leaving Venice and headed for our third destination. We are currently sitting on a high speed train with very little AC, but we’re in Italy so we’re happy! After our very positive and calm experience with Varenna, we were a bit shocked when we first arrived in Venice. It is a weird […]

Varenna, Italy

Denver, CO

A few weeks ago we traveled to Denver, CO, for a a little winter vacation. We’d been talking about visiting one of my best friends in Denver for almost a year, and finally made it happen this month. We had a few things to celebrate: my birthday, Bryan’s defense, a big move to the MidWest (more […]


Moving away to a new city has really helped define true friendship for me. I used to “rank” friendships based on who I would hang out with often or see on a regular basis. Adulthood and living in Florida has taught me otherwise. Instead, I’m learning friendship is all about intention. It’s just a matter […]

Tourist in my city

Last weekend, Bryan and I traveled home to NW Georgia to celebrate our niece’s first birthday. We luckily got 5 days off to visit with family and friends, and see all the new things that the area has to offer. Growing up, we would always go to downtown Chattanooga, TN (only about 20 min away) […]
