How to Plan and Pack for London

I feel like this is kind of an ironically titled post; of all the trips I’ve planned, this one felt the most unorganized despite spending hours and months poring over information. It took me so long to piece together an itinerary, but it seemed like a majority of those plans erupted once we were over there.

Birmingham – Eater’s Guide

Fair warning before you dive into this very long post about food – if you’re not hungry now, you absolutely will be by the end. And if you’re not? Well, you should probably see a doctor about that…

Birmingham – the Best Walls in the City

Back in November, my friend Hannah and I traveled down to Alabama for a conference. In between presenting and attending panels, we took a lot of time to explore this amazing city.

Austin, Texas (March Bachelorette- Day 2)

Sunday was another busy day in Austin!

One of my sister’s requests for her weekend was to have at least one workout class. I did a ton of research trying to find the perfect, unique class. There were lots of cycling and CrossFit classes, but I was determined to find something totally unique!

I think I succeeded 😉
