About

When you wake up every morning, how do you want to feel about your life?

I’ve found that when I’m on an adventure – big or small – I feel giddy. Arriving to a city I’ve never been before, excited to meet the people and discover the city’s gems. Reveling in a successful recipe made or walking out of a restaurant inspired by the dishes and experience. Laughing among friends when I’ve gathered them for an afternoon of crafting or a dinner party.

After years of traveling, eating, and entertaining, I want to inspire you to make plans and then make incredible memories. This blog will give you plenty of details to make planning your next trip or party flawless but it will also give you the inspiration to make the experience your own.

For some time, I was focused on the life timeline of graduation, job, marriage, and kids. Then I thought, “is this all life has to offer?” With the help of friends, trips, and experiences, I realized there IS more to life if you choose to seek it. Life is FULL of adventure.

From exploring the world, trying new foods, and creating your community, you have the ability to create an adventurous life that makes you fearless and captivated.

So…what’s your next adventure?
