MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL…

      One of my favorite parts of holidays is the decor. There is nothing like the simplicity of greens and candles. It’s a simple and elegant way to make any table feel Christmas-y. Riley is busy chewing away at the bone Santa brought her, meanwhile Andrew and I have our minds set on snow!…

PUPS IN SWEATERS: THE ART OF CAMPING WITH A DOG.

When we first brought home our itty bitty lab mix rescue, we made two promises to each other: We will train this dog to be the BEST hiker, camper, and all around the best outdoor efficianto the dog world has ever seen. AND 2.  We will NEVER dress our dog in human clothes. So… I may or may…

DREAMING OF THE ‘DACKS.

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Tonight, I’m sitting by our tree, dreaming of the last camping trip we took to the Adirondacks. Stay tuned for a full post on a weekend in the Adirondacks and the art of camping with a dog…! Happy Sunday!

LAYOVERS DON’T HAVE TO SUCK.

Ah… the dreaded layover. That frustratingly awkward period of time that stands between you and your final destination. The layover is an annoyance shared by all travelers; even those luxury first class passengers aren’t immune (though they do have their swanky lounges.) I have always found layovers particularly irritating, not just because I’m impatient when eagerly awaiting a…

…AND WE’RE BACK.

So… It’s been a while. Sometimes life gets in the way and monopolizes all your attention. Such was the case these last few months. There are moments where I find myself sitting at my desk, imagining a life where I magically have unlimited funds to travel the world. Perhaps some wealthy old woman, who has…

#TBT TRAVEL THURSDAY – CHIANG MAI

Welcome to #TBT Travel Thursdays! I love revisiting past adventures, especially those as exotic as Thailand. Perhaps one of the most memorable stops on our trip was the northern city of Chiang Mai. If you are heading to Thailand you HAVE to make sure to include this in your itinerary. This was when we really…

A WEEKEND IN THE CATSKILLS: MY SHORT ESCAPE TO WOODSTOCK, NY

About two hours outside of New York, sits a charming artistic community nestled in the Catskills. Small shops and delicious restaurants line the downtown thoroughfare making it the perfect weekend destination. This was a big weekend for us. This was our dog’s first camping trip! We adopted Riley’s last November when she was just 8 weeks old….

WOODSTOCK. A TEASER.

I spent this past weekend in beautiful Woodstock, NY. The natural beauty of the upstate wilderness surrounds this cute little artists’ hub making it a must see. Tomorrow I highlight my favorite moments of the weekend…

THIS WEEKEND, I WANDER.

This weekend, I am heading north to Woodstock, NY. The plan is to hike, camp, and soak in the last of the warmth. There is plenty to research before taking off. The pup is tagging along which always requires some extra attention when it comes to accommodations. I already know I’m going to stop in here…

#TBT TRAVEL POST OF THE WEEK: BANGKOK

I’m going to jump on the social media bandwagon here and proclaim Thursdays as a the #TBT Travel Post of the Week. I have been documenting my travels privately for quite some time and have plenty to share with my fellow travelers. Not only will this give me a chance to share the good, the bad,…

WELLFLEET, MA – A SAFE HAVEN

It’s been a long standing Bolger family tradition to pile into the car at 5:00am on a Saturday in August and start our pilgramage to Wellfleet, MA. There is no other place I feel more like myself so it feels like the perfect destination to start off this blog. The Outer Cape is for those who…
