Getting to Positano: Ferry Insight


When planning our trip abroad, I found the resources on how to actually get to Positano, Italy a bit scarce–there isn’t a lot out there other than Trip Advisor. Positano and many of the Amalfi Coast’s towns are surrounded by mountains on one side and sea on the other, requiring a bit more research and strategery in planning your arrival route/departure route. You can’t just hop on a train and land in Positano, as Positano doesn’t have a train station! So I thought I’d share some of my research and also tips that we found helpful en route.

Style Focus: Geometric Tile Floors


I love the global nod that geometric patterned floor tiles speak to. Remember our visit to Claus, Paris for breakfast back in May? I swooned over their geometric patterned floor, and then couldn’t help but notice similar installations peppered all throughout Southern Europe.

A Long Distance Housewarming

Happy Friday to you! Today I’m sharing a few tips and ideas for putting together a long distance housewarming care package. My sister, Sarah, just wrapped up her PhD in Conservation Ecology at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City and accepted a post-doc position with the University of South Florida. So last week she packed everything she owned into her Toyota Rav-4, and road-tripped her way down to Tampa Bay. Talk about a big life moment! Continue reading

And from what I’ve seen so far, I’m really quite excited. I mean, the Peter Pan Linen dress is just beyond! Continue reading

Seize the Summer: Drive-in Movies


When Ken suggested we go to a drive-in movie last Friday night, my initial thought was no short of nostalgic. What lept to mind were rows of Cadillacs, girls in poodle skirts with dainty scarves adorning their pony tails, silhouetted soda-pop bottles and buttered popcorn for days. My second thought was, ‘Do we even have one around here?’ The last time I’d heard anything about a drive-in movie theater was a few years ago when many of them seemed to be closing their doors: a by-gone chapter in America’s history it had seemed.  Continue reading
