Six Tips for Travel With Tots

We love to travel. Between work trips, visiting family, and going on vacation, we seem to travel somewhere with our kids at least once a month. Our friends frequently ask us if we have any travel tips to offer. While I certainly don’t think we’re the world’s leading experts, we have learned a few things about […]

Kid-friendly Aruba

What six things should you do in Aruba, especially if you’re traveling with kids? I’m glad you asked. 😛 Go to Renaissance Island Before we went to Aruba, I saw pictures of people frolicking with flamingos on the beach and I promptly put “frolic with flamingos on the beach” on my bucket list.

On Fall and Homemaking (but mostly photos of apple picking…)

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to “make a home.” For me and Josh, home is somewhat transient concept. We have a home in Cambridge, two loving homes in Colorado, and we spend a notable chunk of our lives on the road. The concept of “home” is also complicated because we know we’ll only spend another year and a […]
