How do you plan an Around the World Trip? Part One

How do you plan an Around the World Trip? Part One

Two of the biggest questions Michael and I have received about our upcoming trip are: "How do you plan an Around the World Trip?" and "How do you choose which countries to visit?"

Well, as one might expect, those questions don't come with easy answers. After all, there are roughly 194 recognized countries scattered across 7 continents and 5 oceans. Time constraints, route logistics, packing lists/visa requirements, climate, and budget are just some of the topics to consider. With all of these factors bouncing around your head, figuring out where to begin may be the hardest part.

Summer Whites at the Missouri Botanical Garden

Summer Whites at the Missouri Botanical Gardens

Summer nights in summer whites at the Missouri Botanical Garden is the dreamiest way to spend an evening in my opinion. I may be a little biased considering we had our wedding reception at the Spink Pavilion in the garden, but I love visiting this floral oasis in St. Louis.

How I Stay Comfydent Working for Myself

August 16, 2016

For the past five years, I have more or less worked for myself - owning a wedding invitation design business, freelance graphic design and writing this blog. I ditched the corporate world and said 'goodbye' to a 9-to-5 job.

While I love the freedom that I have to create my own schedule, taking this unconventional career path definitely creates moments where I don't feel like I measure up amongst my peers. After all, it's just me out there. No team, no management.

When I'm on deadline, the last thing I want to be thinking about is how uncomfortable my bra is or how badly I want to change my outfit.

Palm Print Dress

August 15, 2016


Sadly, our family vacation to WaterColor, Florida, is over but I still wanted to share this Palm Print Dress I wore on our trip to the beach.

Palm prints have been so popular again this summer and when I found this shift dress with a price tag of only $30, I had to throw my "around the world trip budget" momentarily out the window to be a part of the tropical trend.
