  • January 20, 2020
el capitan canyon

If you live in California and are looking for a fun, unique “glamping” experience near the beach, El Capitan Canyon is a great family-friendly vacation spot to “Glamp.” For those not familiar with the term – Glamping is enjoying all the benefits of camping (firepits, roasting marshmallows, being outside!) with a more glamorous setting (bathroom inside! Bed! Linens! Heat!) We recently spent three days at El Capitan Canyon and loved…

Our kitchen flooded on Christmas Eve and so the first three months of the year we spent renovating our house. You can see how our new IKEA and Semihandmade kitchen turned…

20 Things to Do, Eat and See in Portland, Oregon

  • March 13, 2019

Visiting Portland, Oregon with kids is a lot of fun.  It has so much to offer, from urban hikes to parks to amazing food and history. I’ve been to Portland many times, but last summer was the first visit we did with our kids and it was definitely a fun, but different experience.

Living the Airstream Life at Caravan Outpost in Ojai, California

  • January 30, 2019

This month has been absolutely insane. The day after Christmas our kitchen flooded, which led to basically a complete home remodel. We are still without a kitchen, boxes are piled up – painting supplies everywhere and new kitchen appliances are sitting in the middle of the dining room. We’ve been using paper plates for a month now and I’m exhausted by the process. It will be AWESOME when its done,…

Summer in Bend, Oregon — River, Brews and Lakes

  • October 26, 2018

“Can we please move to Bend?” I asked my husband after we spent five days in Oregon’s summer/winter playground of a city, this past summer. (Unfortunately there is no surfing except for river surfing! so the answer was ‘no’). Bend is spectacular.  Not only is it beautiful, but it has something for everyone — river activities, fishing, hiking, breweries, great food, and more, and that’s just in the summer.  This…

So many people have asked us how we managed to travel for seven weeks this summer with our kids.

Ah Paris, so beautiful, historical, and so filled with buttery pastry, savory cheeses, wine and rich foods.  Recently my husband and I were able to go to Paris for four days following a conference I had in London. It was my husband’s first time in Paris so we wanted to see all the main sights, but also wanted to try and get off the beaten path a bit. There are…
