Of the moment // 8.9.19

Holy cow, where has this summer gone? I truly do not know how I used to blog as much as I did: just writing this has basically taken me three months. I’ve been traveling a ton for work, but I’ve also been reading and going to Pilates and hanging with my pug/husband and watering/talking t...

What we lose when Instagram shapes our travels

This is what it means to travel the world in the age of social media, where it’s more about sharing a stunning virtual postcard and less about the wonder and adventure of the journey. According to recent surveys, many people admit to choosing a travel destination based on how it will be perceived o...

A stay in a magical treehouse in the Mohicans

One of the things I believe most deeply is that you don’t have to travel across the world to have the travel experience that you need and want. So many beautiful places can be found in your own backyard, and it’s one of the things I’m most grateful for as an American: this big, diverse country...

Of the moment // 4.19.19

It seems like Of the moment posts were the only thing that people really missed sooooo…here I am! Even though they’re pretty quick and easy, I don’t think I can quite commit to doing them once a week but I am going to try and pop in here monthly or quarterly and share a few of the favorite thing...

Notes on (still) taking a break

It’s hard to know where to start, where to begin again. Nine years ago, I pressed publish on the first post on this blog, and for the past three-ish months, I haven’t written a thing. It’s been the longest that I’ve stepped away from this space since I was 21 years old: it’s been a constan...

Notes on taking a break

In the fall of last year, I was overwhelmed. I was traveling for work almost every week, a series of short flights that required early wake-up calls and long days of meetings. My skin was breaking out, my body felt bloated from too much eating out and not enough working out. David and I were s...

Looking back on 2018

All in all: 2018 was a very good year. I went to three new countries (Slovenia, Japan, Estonia), which fulfills an ongoing annual goal of mine (three new countries, including one birthday in a new country–something I’ve managed to keep up since moving to New York City in 2012). I e...

The best books I read in 2018 (that also make great gifts!)

Two great things that I did in my reading life in 2018: the first was using Goodreads. Even though I’m still not a huge fan of the interface, I’m surprised by how much I love tracking the books I’ve read. The yearly goal-setting and tracking taps into my inner competitive nature, and it also m...

Of the moment // 12.14.18

One thing that has been on my list since we moved to San Diego: I wanted some nice photos of the three of us (aka me, David, Gert) in our new city! In other words, I wanted some photos of us that I could hang in our house that weren’t from our wedding and also didn’t feel super weird a...

Of the moment // 12.7.18

I listened to this episode of Without Fail a few weeks ago, where Alex Blumberg has a conversation with Ron Johnson (the designer of the iconic Apple stores), and one bit of of it has really stuck with me. Ron is talking about making kindness a priority in company culture: “You know the on...

Why it’s worth visiting Tallinn, Estonia

When I told people that we were going to Estonia, the most common response was: where?! And to be completely honest, I didn’t really know exactly where Estonia was located until I looked a little closer at a map when I was scheduling flights. And the reality of its location didn’t really s...

Of the moment // 11.30.18

One of my favorite part of long flights is being able to catch up on movies (thank you Delta for having an incredible array of in-flight entertainment options): I like to watch a mix of new releases and classics that I’ve never seen, as well as revisit some of my old favorites. On one of my ...
