Drink.Dine.Discover. 2.0

Well hello again! I know it’s been a VERY long hiatus, and to be honest I struggled with whether to come back to this space or to begin a new blog all together. When I started this blog it was with the intention to share my favorite restaurants, cocktails and places to visit. The blog evolved from a focus on Atlanta and my weekend travels to documenting my journey to Thailand and across Southeast Asia when Ryan and I decided to pack up our lives and move across the world. With each transition this still felt like a natural outlet for me to share our adventures in Southeast Asia.

But since then so much has changed…we’ve put roots down back in Atlanta, had a baby and I’ve come into my own as a mother…while traveling is still a very important part of my life it takes on a different filter with a toddler in tow. And because of that I was not sure if this was the right place to continue telling my story, which is why I have been m.i.a. for such a long time.

But after struggling with trying to come up with a new blog title for WAY too long I decided to give it another shot here, slightly redesigning the look and starting somewhat fresh. This time around I have so much more to share than my favorite restaurants, from how we make traveling with a toddler an enjoyable experience (it’s not as difficult as you may think!) to the before and after of finishing out my carriage house (which is still in progress). I hate to say I want to transition to more of a “lifestyle” blog, I just want to share more of what is going on in my day-to-day life…where travel is still an active part of it just in a different way.

So with all that said, I am back and here are a few photos to show you what we’ve been up to lately!

…to a stubborn toddler who lets you know when he’s over having his picture taken and has decided 2 a.m. is the best time to play
