ebb + flow :: thank you

While it’s already, somehow, been a week since Thanksgiving the celebrations aren’t over for us quite yet. I’m whipping up another pumpkin pie, making the best cookies and we’re heading to our annual Friendsgiving tomorrow. If history is any indication, it’s going to be quite the feast. Hope you have a weekend filled with good friends and food as well. Catch you Sunday!

For I, For S, For U

ebb + flow :: ISU

Tomorrow, very early in the morning, the Red Head and I are heading back to where it all began: Iowa State University! We’re catching a football game with some college pals, reminiscing about the good ol’ days and probably drinking and eating way too much tailgate goodness. To say I’m pumped wouldn’t do this justice. Here’s hoping we don’t freeze, we manage a decent football game and everyone makes it out alive (we’re not 21 anymore…). Catch you Sunday (maybe?)!

ebb + flow :: wedding weekend

Signing off, hitting the road and celebrating the wedding of a dear friend this weekend. Wish me comfy shoes, stamina for dancing late into the night and lots of good podcasts for the road trip there. Catch you next week!

Driving South

August 25, 2017

ebb + flow :: driving south

In less than 12 hours, the Red Head and I are hopping on I-35 and heading to the great state of Iowa to celebrate the wedding of a dear friend. It’s going to be quite a celebration, I’m sure! I hear there’s a big boxing match on as well so we may need to find a local Iowa establishment that’s airing the big show. Or maybe I’ll just stay on the dance floor, instead. Whatever you’re up to this weekend, friends, I hope you have a great one. Catch you Sunday!


8th Annual!

June 16, 2017

ebb + flow :: camping

This afternoon I’m hitting the road and not stopping until I arrive at Governor Dodge State Park. That location can mean only one thing: annual girls’ camping trip! This is our eighth year of adventures and I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around it. One thing is for sure, though, there will be plenty of onion dip, pretzels, chips, campfires and laughs. Can’t wait!

Back from CO

March 27, 2017

ebb + flow :: home from CO

I’m back in the great state of Minnesota after a long weekend in Colorado and what a wonderful weekend it was! Highlights included a visit to the Hot Springs, an evening in Breckenridge, a fresh coat of snow in Keystone, an attempt at snowshoeing, a pass over the Continental Divide, a Big Little Lies binge and quality time with a long-time friend. Weekends like that are good for the soul. Let’s hope that fresh mountain air can carry me through the busy weeks ahead!

Colorado Skies

ebb + flow :: colorado skies

My alarm is set for a VERY early time tomorrow but it’s for a great reason. I’m hopping on a plane and visiting the first friend I ever made at Iowa State! We met more than a decade ago and we’ve been long overdue for a weekend of catching up, taking in the mountains and peace. I’m signing off to soak it all up and I’ll catch you next week when I’m back to my normal altitude!

Roman Times

March 17, 2017

ebb + flow :: roman times

Many moons ago, I studied abroad in Rome and this weekend two of my roomies from that semester adventure are heading to Minneapolis! I am so, so pumped to show these gals the city, sip wine and reminisce while making some St.Patrick’s Day memories. See you on Sunday!
