Fairytale Living: Schlosshotel Münchhausen

Let me just say I’m not this well trained in living in castles. I’ve seen quite a few and stepped inside but sleeping in them? Having afternoon tea in the Knights Hall every day? Let’s just say it’s not always on my agenda (though it really should be). That did change for four spectacular days as Lukas and I traveled to Germany’s countryside and lived like royalty. It’s an adventure right on the property! And there…

Photo Diary: Hamburg On The Water

First time out on the water this year! Aside from the ferry trips, of course. The weather just warmed up enough in Hamburg where we felt comfortable going out on the Alster River in some smaller boats, pedal boats to be exact. We rented one for a few hours and spent the afternoon together. This post was sitting in my drafts and are from a couple weeks ago, right before I returned back to Boston…

Amsterdam Part 3, Diamonds & Munchies

So rounding up the big birthday trip our last full day in Amsterdam was a lot of fun and slightly “spacey” (if you know what I mean.). Lukas and I slept in and went out late for breakfast for bagels. We’re both major bagel people (all bread and carbs really). But the sun continued to shine and on our last full day, we realized we have yet to visit any museums and thought we would…

Birthday in Amsterdam, Part 2 Canal Ride

More from Amsterdam! How is one supposed to narrow down over 700 photos and dozens of video for a single blog post?? This is my attempt. The weather was so beautiful (lucky us!) that we were able to shed our coats for some time and have a sneak peek of summer. We decided we needed to do all things that one would typically do in summer and not hold back even though spring has barely…

Birthday In Amsterdam, Part 1

Life in Amsterdam! How lucky am I that I was able to explore you?? Lukas planned a surprise trip to Amsterdam and I could not be more grateful. We woke up at 6 am on my birthday, had cake for breakfast and packed a bag for an 8 am train where I was unaware of our final destination. If you saw my Instastories you also got to experience the whole thing with me! I knew…

Day Trip: Bremen, Germany

Yay for weekend dates! L and I have been filling up our weekends away and we went to Bremen a couple weeks ago. He said it was a strange city but worth seeing for a day so we hopped on a train and on our way we went. Out of our small town adventures so far, (Luneburg, Lubeck, and now Bremen), and I do think Bremen is the strangest. It has a unique vibe set…

Photo Diary: Lübeck

Recently Lukas and I ran off to Lübeck, a small city about an hour outside of Hamburg. An unusual city and the first where I was greeted with such a prominent gate. Lübeck is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with its gorgeous gothic architecture and its old town is really darling. Lukas has three days off a week and we’ve been making an effort to visit many places just outside the city as little day…

Photo Diary: Lüneburg, Germany

Lukas and I took a short train ride outside of Hamburg for a daytime date. 45 minutes away to explore the town of Lüneburg in northern Germany. It’s one of those picturesque towns in Germany that makes you feel you stepped onto a film set! Or placed yourself in the middle of a snow globe, sans snow. Founded in 956 (yes, that’s right. the year 956), the town was most popular and wealthy in Middle…

See Summer Better: Warby Parker Summer 2015

This post was originally made public on June 7, 2015. Originally posted on Tumblr. Imported and last updated April 26, 2017. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile you may know I looove shopping for sunglasses and eyeglasses. I love all different shapes and sizes and find it one of the best accessories you can wear. Now that it’s June and temperature are starting to rise (typically that’s the case, but who really knows in…
