ebb + flow :: casablanca

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that the Red Head and I booked a big trip this fall… a big trip to Morocco!! It’s been on our radar for awhile but we decided to bite the bullet, book tickets and never look back. This October we’ll be spending a week in Casablanca and will explore a couple other cities with day trips. To say we’re excited would be a major, major understatement. So bear with me as I’m pinning Morocco to-do lists and modest fashions, OK? Thanks!

Back from CO

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

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!

Back to Minnie

ebb + flow :: back to minnie

Oh my word, a weekend in Florida was just what I needed! The last couple days with best friends, temperatures in the 80s and far too many Piña Coladas has left me feeling rejuvenated (and maybe with a lingering headache). The very full inbox this morning brought me back to Earth pretty quick but I’ll keep scrolling through my sunny pics when I need a little virtual Vitamin D boost!

Take Me To Sunshine

I’m packing up a weekend bag, dropping of the dog at daycare, picking up some dear friends and hopping on a plane to sunny Florida tomorrow. The timing is perfect and the change of scenery will be very, very welcome. While grey might be my favorite color, I’m ready for some blue skies and green grass. I’ll see you next week, if I ever return!

Weekend At Home

November 28, 2016

ebb + flow :: weekend at home

Despite the traffic jam we experienced yesterday, heading to Chicago this weekend was the perfect post-Black Friday therapy. There was an impressive brunch spread, an abundance of family traditions, an over-used selfie stick and lots of laughs. Also, wine. Plenty of wine. I’m hoping for more of all of those things sooner rather than later and hope you had a wonderful holiday as well!

Shout out to my nephew who snapped this pic with his finger covering half the lens. I love it!

Blue Skies

November 7, 2016

ebb + flow :: NYC sky

Not to be super boring and only talk about the weather for two days straight but CAN YOU SEE THOSE BLUE SKIES? I never thought I’d be wandering the streets of New York City in November with no jacket and spending Sunday afternoons in my Minneapolis backyard comfortably playing with that giant grey dog of mine. T’was a wonderful few days of sunshine and adventure, let’s hope it continues!
