Honeymoon in Whistler, BC

Hello again everyone! Well, the wedding has come and gone, the honeymoon was awesome, and Thomas is probably over the Atlantic as we speak on his way back to Naples. Sigh 😦 It was so much fun, and it all flew by so fast. But now I have time to go through photos and blog … Continue reading

Late Night Baking (with lavender!)

I love baking, but I don’t usually do it this late. I made the mistake of drinking green tea about an hour ago, so I’m pretty wired. But that’s ok, because I’ve been meaning to get around to making these yummy-looking honey lavender cookies. Last week I drove down the road to Cedar Creek Lavender … Continue reading

McCall, Idaho

June 22-24: Last weekend some friends and I took an eight hour drive to the Gem State for a visit to a little town called McCall. Let me tell you, this is the cutest little town you’ve never heard of. McCall is nestled near the middle of Payette National Forest along the southern shore of … Continue reading

A Summer Solstice Wedding DIY!

Hello! I know, it’s been a little while. Ever since I got back from Italia it’s been a lot of wedding planning and not much else, and I don’t think hours in front of the computer surfing through weddinggawker would make a good post. But I suppose I did have my PSU Commencement on Sunday … Continue reading

Softball, Firenze, & Pisa

May 25-27: Last weekend we packed up the car and took a five hour road trip to Camp Darby in Pisa for a softball tournament. Ten men’s teams and five women’s teams from all over Europe came to play. Thomas is on the Naples team, so it was really fun to go watch him play … Continue reading

Anfiteatro di Capua

I’m finally getting this post up after a very busy week! First, Thomas’ laptop broke, and we lost everything on it, which really sucked because my laptop broke not too long ago and I had just finished moving all my files over. Luckily I had everything backed up (Do it people! You never know when … Continue reading

Reggia di Caserta

May 21: On Monday Thomas and I went to the Royal Palace of Caserta with some friends. It was a blast. Our tickets admitted us to the palace as well as the royal garden–both breathtaking in terms of size and beauty. We toured the palace first. The massiveness of the palace and intricacy of its … Continue reading


May 13: Sorrento might be my favorite city we’ve visited so far. The drive there is enough to rave about; much of the road to the coast town is along the edge of a cliff around the south end of the Bay of Naples. And there’s tons of cool shops in town. Here’s some pictures … Continue reading

Ninja Gus

So we have a new dog… his name is Ninja Gus (or just Gus) 🙂 He’s actually a stray, but he’s been sleeping on our porch for about a week now. We have absolutely no idea how he gets in–the house is totally gated, as are all of the houses on our block–hence then name Ninja … Continue reading
