A Couple of Hours at The Flower Petal Confetti Fields

Ever since spying these flower confetti fields of flowers on Instagram two years ago, I've been itching to go.

I love how a beautiful spot can bring together so many people (and bring out so many smiles). It's always worth seeking out places, people and things that make you happy. How perfect when I can find all three in one field!

How To Dress For The Fourth of July

I absolutely love living in London, but there are still some things that I miss, including celebrating holidays. I'm lucky though to have made a number of American friends and it's nice to still carry on those traditions with them.

Rhododendrons at Kenwood House

Sometimes you happen upon places that just take your breath away—this display of rhododendrons was one of those spots.

It was doubly special for me. I'm a firm lover of all things floral, but secondly, rhododendrons are the state flower of Washington (where I'm from), so it felt like being right at home (while still in the city of London). I first spotted these stunners on Instagram and knew that I needed to find them.

A Breath of Fresh Air (In London)

I love living in London. It's city living at its very best. Everything you could ever want is within reach. But along with city life comes smog, congestion, and so so many people! 

Sometimes you need a breath of fresh air—literally and figuratively. And you know what? London offers that too. Here’s where I get it.

Our Amsterdam Itinerary

We’ve just returned from the most magical long weekend in Amsterdam. I always say that I'll never love another city as much as London, but Amsterdam came oh so very close.

I'm happy to say that we were able to do everything on our list, plus find some unexpected gems along the way. Here's how we spent our long weekend in Amsterdam.

A City Wedding In Chicago

Better really (like, really) late than never, so here are a few photos from last summer when we flew out to Chicago for a family wedding. I was a bit nervous, as I'd be meeting quite a few of my husband's family members for the first time. And even more nervous because I hadn't yet chosen what to wear (or even brought a dress with me!).
