Life Updates From Hamburg, Germany

Hello! I’m still alive! The last four months have been a complete whirlwind and I’ve felt guilty for abandoning the blog during that time. I’ve been working on some exciting things though! Since my last post I was on Martha’s Vineyard at the end of summer and by mid-October, I was back in Hamburg with Lukas. Throughout November we were apartment hunting and by December we found a new place in HafenCity and moved in!…

Washington D.C.: The Fairmont & Georgia Brown’s, Diary

Lukas and I arrived in Washington D.C.! After a short plane, long train and what felt like an oddly long cab ride through the city, we entered our home away from home at the Fairmont Washington D.C. I always thought of Fairmont’s as being quite traditional in taste but this one had very modern features, especially in its lounge areas. It felt like a breath of fresh air walking in, a zen feeling from within. You…

Diary: Ice Cream & Antiques in Gloucester, Massachusetts

This past weekend has been such a whirlwind of unexpected events. The biggest one was the fact that Lukas surprised me early!! He kept telling me that he was arriving on Saturday and that he would be in Berlin on Friday for a meeting. I had a photo shoot scheduled Friday morning and right as I woke up I checked in with him as usual. He sent a smiling photo of himself and on my…

48 Hours: Mystic, Connecticut

Back with another post about our recent trip to Connecticut! I’m sharing a complete overview of our 48 hours in Mystic, Connecticut. Although the weather wasn’t on our side during our time there we were still able to go out on a less rainy day. With a population of only 4,205, it’s clear the people of this coastal community make it so special! Everyone I chatted with was so sweet and supportive of one another…

Welcoming August: Monthly Goals & Upcoming Fun

Hello, August! I’m so happy to have the last full month of summer here. Even though New England is the best place to be in summer, it is still my least favorite season. The humidity in the city is absolutely unbearable and even staying seaside isn’t all that fun! After the first two weeks or so of nice weather I start to wear the same 7 pieces, I can’t stop sweating and the heat makes me feel more tired…

Lady In Red: Our Picture Perfect Day In Vienna!

I AM SO EXCITED to finally share this with you! I’ve shared parts of it here and there but this is the first time I’m actually talking about this photo shoot and sharing a real collection of them. You’ll notice my sidebar portrait was from this shoot! Lukas and I love having our photo taken (which is funny to me now because I used to HATE it. All of my elementary school photos look like…

Mornings at Demel

I love those days where everything seems to just fall into place perfectly – you have things to do although nothing feels overwhelming and the cards are just in your favor for those few hours. This is how I feel when I walk into Demel. Although Demel could probably be seen as a common tourist attraction as it’s so famous for those visiting Vienna, it’s absolutely wonderful! And after trying out multiple Viennese cafes we…

New Orleans Jazz Fest 2017 Diary + Playlist

New Orleans…Where do I even begin? It’s my original hometown although I’ve grown up and spent enough years in New England that I consider myself a New Englander as well. When somebody asks where I’m from I tend to switch back and forth depending on the conversation. There is no doubt I have a connection with this city though. Some of my first solid meals were gumbo, red beans, and jambalaya. I remember Hack, one…

Sights To Give You Shivers…An Austrian Train Ride

Just a very short yet beautiful post about our train ride into Austria. As we began our journey in a panic at the Munich Central Station, afraid of missing our train to Austria we were most grateful it ended up being delayed! We miscalculated our time and only realized about 10 minutes before the train was scheduled to depart and we had barely checked out of our hotel! I’m in panic mode, Lukas is in…
