The Trip of a Lifetime

In May of this year I had the time of my life traveling to Europe with my older brother, Nate. Over the previous few months we had planned on what countries to visit, reserved accomodations, researched rental cars vs trains vs Ubers and booked excursions.

We decided upon Barcelona, the South of France, Monaco, the Amalfi Coast, and Rome. Over 15 glorious days we explored Monserrat, stayed in a French medieval village, caught snippets of the Grand Prix, roamed the streets of Positano, and stood in awe of the Colosseum.

Bedroom Refresh Part Two

 For the second part of this bedroom refresh, I had my heart set on a beautiful white slipcovered bed. I wanted the room to feel airy, romantic, organic, and cozy. I partnered with Demarchelier & Co. on the bed of my dreams, all new bedding, antique side tables, and antique trunk.

Bedroom Refresh Part One

 Our bedroom was ready for a refresh. I knew I wanted to keep the limewashed walls, handmade linen chandelier, and vintage Turkish rug, but everything else was getting an upgrade! I began searching online for the perfect pieces to compliment our bedroom and Chairish was one of the places I searched.

A Weekend in Venice

During our trip to Austria we planned to visit Germany, along with taking a train to Venice for a couple of days. We booked our tickets and enjoyed the very scenic views from the six hour train ride from Salzburg to Venice.

Hiking the Bavarian Alps to Hitler's Eagle's Nest

Being avid history and WWII fans, Josh and I had planned on visiting Hitler's mountainside retreat, The Eagle's Nest, in Berchtesgaden, Germany. When researching our visit we discovered that you are able to hike the Bavarian Alps up to the historical landmark. We knew right away that was the route we wanted to take, instead of the tourist bus that, according to our tour guide, 99% of visitors use when touring the site. We decided we wanted to be that 1% and hike the exact same path the Easy Company of the 101st Airborne took when discovering the fortress.
