Backcountry is a go-to for outdoor gear, & cute hiking outfits are no exception. We found the perfect sneakers for a trip to the Paint Mines — & more.
This post is sponsored by Backcountry and ShopStyle. Eight years ago I made the decision that I was going to make the outdoors my BFF. I grew up going to camp every year, but somewhere between high school and graduating from college, I lost my love of spending time outside. I am so happy that I've recommitted to finding new...
It's Backcountry's HUGE CyberSale! We're shopping a TON of adventure gear perfect for chillier months + the best outerwear. Our top picks for the adventurer & non-adventurer alike, inside.
This post is sponsored by Backcountry & ShopStyle. Fresh air. I will never take it for granted again after this summer and this year's fire season. Friends, this trip to the coast to get outside with my girlie was just what I needed. You can see it on my face in all of these photos...what a gift it was....
Hiking the trails in the Wissahickon Valley of Philadelphia is gorgeous — & also...quaint. Our family-friendly outing (+ what to wear hiking,) inside.
I'm embarrassed to admit that we've been living in Philadelphia for ten years nows...and we had never gone hiking in Wissahickon until last year, The Ninth Year of Our Residency in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. One of the coolest things about Philadelphia? It's old, man. At least by U.S. standards. And the Wissahickon? Well. Once inhabited by the indigenous Lenape people —...
A Catskills getaway hit the family adventure spot. The deets for hiking the trails at Russell Brook Falls (+ what to wear & eat), inside.
We ventured up to the Catskills recently, for a few nights of family togetherness. Despite the short drive from Philadelphia, we had never previously visited. We stayed at the North Branch Inn (more on that later -- we LOVED it), and basically spent a couple of days relaxing, eating, and doing a little hiking. Catskills Getaway: Hiking Russell Brook...
We're taking the kids on a little family friendly adventure in the Upper Peninsula...biking, berries & bikinis on a secret beach in Michigan.
While we were in Michigan, I took the kids biking. I packed a lunch, told them to wear their swimsuits and off we went. Initially, they were full of complaints. It was a hot, muggy, oppressive day, with gray skies and that thick, heavy air you can feel on your skin. Thunderstorms were heading our way -- eventually -- ...
Stay-put swimswear, cozy fleece by Patagonia or The North Face & a camping couch...Backcountry offers all we need for lakeside adventures.
A huge thank you to Backcountry & Shopstyle for sponsoring this post. We just returned from a three-week trip to the lake. And by 'the lake' I mean the gorgeous, clear-watered, sandy bottomed, hidden gem of a lake located somewhere in the wilderness of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.    Lake Life: All This Woman Needs For An Outdoor Adventure No big deal. I grew...
A few weeks ago, we drove from Philadelphia to St. Ignace, MI. It is...looking at Google Maps...a 13 hour drive? Lies! We were in that darn car for at least 15 hours. And while I appreciated the words of support on IG...they were, overall, much too peppy. Next time, I need less "you can do it!!" and more "you poor...
Our local loves for Westchester includes mom entrepreneurs w/ small businesses from food to virtual styling to pre- & postpartum exercise. Let's support them!
Sometimes I forget this is REAL. One day I avoid the news at all costs. The next, my Google search looks something like this: "Coronavirus, NY updates" or "Coronavirus in Colombia" -- my family is in quarantine there, too. Is it just me? At times it's so easy to forget about it in the comfort of my safe home. I'm...
From toys at Momo's Treehouse to pjs at Printfresh + cafe & vegetarian takeout, we're supporting these small businesses in Philly during the COVID crisis.
There are so many reasons I love this little city of mine. I've called it one of the most under-rated cities in America, and I stand by that description. Philly is often overshadowed by neighboring NYC or Washington DC...but here's the thing: nobody cares. Local LOVE Philadelphia: Our Fave Small Businesses To Shop & Support Philadelphia has its own unique...
