Dear Travel, I’ve been stalking you again. This makes the fifth time today—and I haven’t even had breakfast yet. I’ve had this happy addiction for a while now and it shows no signs of letting up. I’m certain of it—so certain that I’ve diagnosed myself with a permanent incurable itch called wanderlust. Everyone around me […]


It’s been almost three years since I packed everything I owned into my car and drove hundreds of miles away from my family and closest friends to begin a new journey in a new city. I remember driving on the open road, all four windows down, singing at the top of my lungs trying to […]

Solo female travel

There’s a lesson in everything—you’ve heard this before from your parents, their parents or some motivational quote you saw on Pinterest. Every moment in our lives—every experience reveals something about you, someone else, or the world. My solo trip to Europe taught me things.

I had been watching flight prices fluctuate for three months before I finally closed my eyes, held my breath and booked my ticket to Spain for my 26th birthday. I love adventures (even though I always get nervous as hell!) and this just […]

Don’t you love when you get your hopes up for something you’ve been wanting for a long time and it turns out to be everything you hoped it would be?! Uchi is my perfect example of an exceeded expectation and I would be remiss if I didn’t brag about it during Houston Restaurant Weeks! I have had this place on […]


I fell in love with Maui while I was visiting a good friend from college. Maui made me think about things, the deep things. Not your typical “what am I going to do this Friday?” kind of thing. Nope-I’m talking about the “what is my purpose in life?” total meltdown. I can’t be the only one who has that […]
