If you know me personally or have been following me a while you know, Napa Valley is Brandon & I’s happy place, our most favorite place to travel to in the US, where we got married, and when we’re really dreaming big, we dream of starting up a boutique winery there someday….

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know, I’m a sucker for a big beautiful charcuterie board, well actually I’ve never had a charcuterie board I didn’t love, big or small! When we travel we love to order them from all over the world and see all the unique ways people arrange them, and let me tell ya, we’ve seen some pretty incredible ones, the great thing is, there’s no wrong way to make one! Really, you just need really yummy cheeses, meats, & any other favorites from your fridge or pantry. With summer & backyard hang outs on the horizon what a better time to share how I like to arrange my “Insta worthy” charcuterie boards!Read More

Eachus family party of 3 take Europe, first up London, United Kingdom!
Brandon and I were big travelers before we had Ellery, and just about everyone who had kids told us this would change when we had her, we listened and smiled, knowing we had no idea how to be parents, but did in fact know how to travel, and that if our baby was healthy we would be continuing to travel including our International excursions, even if everyone thought we were clueless. So what did we do a month after Ellery was born? Book our first European family vacation of course! So I’m here to tell you, just because you have a baby, or kids, you can still travel 🙂Read More
