Packing a lunch is one of the best habits I've learned over the years. It began out of necessity when I worked at a job with zero nearby lunch options and has turned into a rewarding part of my daily life. I love the feeling of knowing that A) I don't need to search for or think about what I'll eat for lunch, B) I can eat whenever hunger strikes, and C) I'm in control of the amount I'm eating and spending on food and those decisions aren't being made when I'm already hangry. Hangry = a combination of hunger and angry, the bad mood that lurks in when you're starving.
I've been documenting my recent packed lunches on both Instagram and Facebook using the #packedlunchproject hashtag.
Bonjour! We just visited Paris, France, for the very first time. While I'll do a full download of our favorite food and activities soon, I thought an immediate and basic overview of our visit will be helpful to me in the future. Hopefully it will also be helpful for you!
Overall I LOVE love LOVED Paris and would and will go back again in a heartbeat. Our time there was not nearly long enough.
I spent the summer of 2017 eating my way around Safeco field, which was glorious. This little tour of the stadium has been updated with two more items [waffles and crab sandwiches!] in June of 2018.
Original post from 2017:
Summer is, without a doubt, my favorite season of the year. Oh, I've said it before? Well I will probably say it again and again. Plus, can't we all use a little more talking about what makes us happy? I love the long summer days, the warm weather, and the accompanying clothing [HELLO dresses and flip flops!] The fresh fruits and no-cook meals are so simple, delicious, and satisfying. Who doesn't like an adventure to get ice cream after dinner?
If you ask my husband about the highlight of his summer the answer will undoubtedly be baseball. His dreamy summer day consists of going to (and actually watching) a baseball game, drinking a few draft beers, spitting sunflower seeds all over a sunny stadium, and watching his favorite team take home a win. Then he'll go home and watch the highlights of the other baseball games on ESPN before calling it a night!
I try my best to be a supportive partner and "step up to the plate" by attending baseball games. While I have no intention of watching the ball game, I love to do a few laps around a stadium to people watch and search for the best food and drink. The home team here is the Seattle Mariners and their stadium, Safeco Field, has a great reputation for diverse and interesting food offerings and, more recently, food safety!
'Fav 5' travel guides include 5 of the best spots I've found to eat, drink, and explore in a city while visiting. This is the first of a two part guide to Nashville, Tennessee, focused specifically on the sights and sounds in downtown Nashville.
Recent Fav 5 travel guide locations include Vancouver, BC in Canada and Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California.
Nashville, Tennessee. What began as a high school band trip for my cousin and her 15 year old daughter turned into a family vacation for 10 people! We took on Music City like it was our job. While a large group with various interests and staggering ages wasn't easy to coordinate, we all carefully selected which activities and tours to go on during our 5 days in Nashville.
Nashville is both the capital of and the most populated city in Tennessee. This guide will cover locations specifically in downtown Nashville including "Lower Broadway." Named for the street running through it, Lower Broadway is the heart of the country music district. It is dotted with stores filled with boots and hats galore and you can't count the number of cycle bar tours and bachelorette parties whizzing by. You'll be delighted to catch colorful murals and live music around every corner.
Travel tip: Checking the Uber website before flying into any city is always a great idea. Many airports have the "ride sharing" pickup in some corner of a back building somewhere, accessible only by hidden elevators or water taxis, and you can waste plenty of time looking for it. Here is your guide on how to catch an Uber in the Nashville airport (BNA).
Fav 5 is a series of travel guides in which I highlight 5 of the best spots I've found to eat, drink, and explore in a place while visiting. This time it's all about Vancouver, in British Columbia (BC) in Canada.
Vancouver is a Canadian city located in the province of British Columbia. It's just about 2.5 hours' drive time from Seattle, Washington, to Vancouver. I was shocked to learn that Vancouver is the 4th most densely populated city in North America after New York City, San Francisco, and Mexico City.
