Easter Weekend

As I sit here and reflect on this past weekend, I can’t help but be thankful to have such a close network of family and friends in Atlanta.  As usual the weekend was packed full of activities, and overall was a huge success! Read More

Masters, Augusta National

A big congrats to our new Masters champion, Sergio Garcia! This time of year and this tournament in general always makes me wish I was better at golf. I’ve tried my hand at the sport a few times – taking lessons in college, regular trips to the driving range and putting greens, and even playing in a charity tournament – but I’ve never dedicated the time it takes to master the game. I also don’t regularly follow the sport professionally, except for when it comes to the Masters.

Living just two hours from August National it’s hard not to follow this tournament. Most Atlantans know at least one people who has experienced the Masters, or has experienced it themselves. I am fortunate enough to be in the latter group, in 2015 Ryan and I made the trip down for a practice round and were blown away. It is even more beautiful in person and the benefit of the practice rounds are you can bring cameras in and players are relaxed and a lot more accessible. Read More

Friday Reads

Happy Friday! I cannot believe the weekend is already here, this week completely got away from me – as most have been lately. When I have a lot going on I think it’s important to take a few minutes for myself – whether it’s reading an article I saved days before, having a quite glass of wine, or just catching up on the news. That said, I thought I would share a few links to what I’ve been reading during these short moments lately.  I hope you enjoy.

My weekends

Weekends are by far my favorite part of the week; I love not having a set schedule and getting to spend all my time with family and friends. And while there is no “schedule” per se, my weekends always seems to follow a similar routine.

If we’re not traveling our weekends tend to look like this… Read More

Currently…

Since it has been such a long time since I’ve really been on here I thought I would do a little update on what I’ve been up to lately, so here goes nothing… Read More

Anniversary trip to Grand Cayman

Ryan and I recently celebrated our five year anniversary by heading to Grand Cayman for a long weekend. This was the first time we had been away from Jackson together, and while we missed him terribly it was a nice treat to be able to sleep in, order room service and relax. A special thanks to my parents who flew down and watched him for the long weekend.

We had been going back and forth for weeks on where we were going to for this trip and then we saw Delta was having a huge promotion to Grand Cayman so we booked our flights pretty impulsively. So we didn’t have any expectations as we headed down there, fortunately Grand Cayman did not disappoint. We spent the majority of our three days there lying on the beach with a book and cocktail in hand. These were some of the softest white sand beaches and crystal clear waters I’ve ever seen.

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. Read More
