Hey y’all! I just made it to Los Angeles after spending a month in San Diego. I had no idea I would fall in love with that city. The weather, the sunsets, and the water are such game-changers when you are surrounded by them every day. And it was the month of November?! So many […]

Walt Disney World: one of my favorite places on the entire planet. My family has had season passes since I was itty bitty, and we would venture down to Kissimmee, Florida, several times a year. WDW is perfect for every age of dreamers, and I have found the magic of Disney is more prevalent the […]

Wow it’s already October, my favorite time of year. It’s the start of my birthday month, pumpkin spice everything, and Hocus Pocus nights. I like to consider myself a chai, apple, pumpkin, mulled cider enthusiast, so needless to say, I am very excited for all the festivities to begin. While I am thrilled to currently […]

Oh goodness, Detroit surprised me. I didn’t know what to expect since I had never been to the city, and most of my friends had visited several years ago. The downtown area is full of cute shops, restaurants, and green spaces with parks and puppies. With its wall art and juxtaposition of old and new, […]

First of all, how was Indianapolis four months ago?! I can’t believe all the places I have visited since the beginning of the summer. Indy was a complete surprise to me, and I actually loved the city. Downtown is charming, full of new restaurants and a Whole Foods (I remember cities based off WHM and […]

For seven weeks, I performed in the gorgeous city of Toronto and lived that Canadian life. Ok, I’ll be honest, Toronto is basically the same as New York City, except CAD for currency and a Nordstrom dangerously close to the Ed Mirvish Theatre. Having one of my best gal pals, Catherine, back on tour with me for […]

Ever since I was little, I always dreamed of going to Hawaii. The image of the Pacific Ocean tangled in views of volcanic mountains and palm trees sounded like my kind of vacation. We had been planning as a family to make the trip since my senior year of high school, but between moving to Boston […]

As some of y’all have followed, I traveled to Greece last fall for my first trip to Europe. And I can’t believe it has already been a year?! I’ve already posted about my time in Athens (see here) and Mykonos (and here), but I haven’t shared any pics from my stay in Santorini. We spent […]

Sometimes my days off consist of sleeping, eating cheddar bunnies, Netflix, and then eating again (preferably cheddar bunnies). And sometimes my days off turn into playing with animals behind the gates of the zoo. Our friend Mike Dulaney from the Cincinnati Zoo let us tag along for an amazing tour behind the scenes of the […]

Traveling on a national tour has taken me to some of the most gorgeous cities in America. After working in Costa Mesa, California, for three weeks, I landed in San Francisco for a six week stay. Being my first time in Northern California, I didn’t really know what to expect. But after spending time in […]
