During our trip to Morocco, the Red Head and I took two day trips, the first of which was to Marrakech! We were jazzed. We had heard nothing but great things about this vibrant city. Three hours in the car and a flat tire didn’t drain our enthusiasm and I’m thankful we still had energy because Marrakech requires it. Busy streets, bustling markets, snake charmers, bakers, craftsman, animals and people run every which way. If it weren’t for our very patient tour guide I think we’d still be lost there today. We’d have lots of great trinkets to bring home but we’d still be wandering the markets for sure. Below are a few snaps of our adventure in Marrakech from markets to a great lunch spot and everything else in-between.

While the Red Head and I were in Morocco a couple weeks ago we called Casablanca ‘home’ during our stay. To be honest, it ended up not being the favorite city we visited but it was wonderful to have the cooler temps, an ocean-side hotel and countless restaurants all within blocks every single day. Plus, with Petit Taxis readily available (and cheap!) we felt like the whole city was at our fingertips.

Below are a few snaps from around the city! Highlights include the Hassan II mosque, reading Game of Thrones by candlelight (a nightly occurrence), breathtaking tilework at every turn, fresh fruits and juices at every corner and this amazing dinner spot (not pictured). Next up: Marrakech!

Gone Beachin’

ebb + flow :: gone beachin'

After a wild week of house projects, late nights, early mornings and a dash of stress the Red Head and I are heading to Myrtle Beach for his annual family vacation! We’ll be soaking up the sun, swimming in the ocean (I’m the only one that ever goes in the water!), reading books, riding go karts (Red’s request) and checking out the sites before we’re back next week. I’ll see you then. Have a wonderful weekend!


Fantasy Football

ebb + flow :: do better

For the second year in a row, I’ve been roped into a Fantasy Football League with the Red Head and his co-workers. I’m, at best, a poor participant. Last week, I forgot to add a kicker to my lineup (apparently, this is a problem) and I told the Red Head ‘I’m going to do better.’ Here’s a public declaration to try and, at least, fill my entire lineup for the rest of the season. I’m all about little goals or should I say field goals? Ha!

ebb + flow :: paint time

Tomorrow! Tomorrow the Red Head and I close on our new house! It’s full of ugly tile, odd rooms, stained carpet and a bathroom that teleported straight from the 70s. Get excited to follow along as we make it ours, one paint stroke at a time.

ebb + flow :: dubai

Here’s a sentence I never thought I’d write: The Red Head and I just booked a trip to Dubai.

Huh? I’m just as shocked as you but when pals booked an around the world ticket that included some time in the incredible city we decided to crash their party! Any tips for staying cool in the desert in late August? I’m going to need them! More details to come as the big trip gets closer but the countdown is on! I’m pumped.

Chicago Bound

February 26, 2016

ebb + flow :: road trip

I’m clocking out a bit early today and hitting the road for Chicago! I’ll be there the next TWO weekends actually for various wedding activities and am pretty gosh darn excited. For this trip I’m bringing grey dog and the Red Head along so I’ll have some good company to help pass the time on the road. Them and, of course, some good snacks. I’ll try and catch you on Sunday for the wrap up and hope you have the best of weekends!

P.S. This is totally the type of hat/outfit I wear on the road. Ha!
