on working motherhood

This blog did start more as a lifestyle blog – and while I spend less time crafting beautiful writing and focus more on pithy updates for my followers (aka, 10 of my family and friends), I figured I should include this post I had written on Linkedin about my transition back into the workforce. Mostly…

Disney & Sanibel Island with a Baby

Apparently “real travelers” make fun of Disney-goers. I suppose it’s not as exotic or “authentic” as a backpacking trip across Southeast Asia…but I say why not enjoy BOTH? We love our backpacking adventures in middle-of-nowhere countries, but we also love a good Disney trip. We would be sad if this were our idea of a…

Mexico City, Mexico

We’re back! It’s been a whirlwind few months, with maternity leave, the start of work, and a few smaller trips in between. I’d promised to myself that our fundamental interests wouldn’t change too much once kids came along, and travel was a huge part of that. We figured the more mom and dad got used…

Maui, Hawaii

As we promised, we didn’t stop traveling once we had a baby…on the contrary, as soon as S finished her 2 month vaccines, we were on a 12 hour plane ride past the other side of the country. We booked this trip when S was around 1 month. We wanted to see how she was…

A little update

Well it’s been many months since a blogpost since we’ve been stuck in place because of the pandemic (compounded by pregnancy…I probably would have been fine traveling a bit further in my second trimester but hubs was very cautious). Pregnancy is officially over, and little Miss S joined us a few weeks ago! I figure…

Montana – Wyoming – Utah Roadtrip

This is the last blogpost of 2020. When I wrote my last blogpost of the year, last year, the world looked a lot different. I was, as always, looking forward to my next big adventure (I’m glad we ended up taking it, in January to Colombia, before the world shut down in mid-March!), and awaiting…

Grand Teton National Park

Ok so it’s almost the end of the year, so I will crank out the last of my blog posts from our National Parks roadtrip a few months back…FINALLY. The last few weeks have been a little crazy, as we welcomed a new puppy PANDA into our home!! He’s been pretty angelic and easy to…

Yellowstone National Park

As usual, I am delinquent on updating my blog posts – but this time there’s not a rush to crank them out before our next trip, given the pandemic! So I will slowly take my time in writing these. I’ve also been pretty lethargic recently, because I’m…[PREGNANT!] What! M and I (ok, mostly I) are…

Glacier National Park

Happy almost-fall! These last few weeks have been a strange mix of sitting, starting school again, and getting back into the routine of the life of a student. I am working part-time (15 hrs a week) as a pricing strategy consultant, which keeps my weeks busy. Otherwise, just being a student and not getting the…

Weekend Trips from Boston, MA

Hello friends! The whole summer has come and gone, and what’s usually a time period of international trips was replaced this year by a series of cabin weekends and roadtrips, after we felt that roadtripping to various cabin houses was safe. I’ve just wrapped up my internship for the summer, which I was honestly so…
