We're pretty real here in Philly, the city of LOVE. Virtually visit these small businesses & amazing Makers. Shop online, send a message, shop local.
I'm a Philly girl. My love of our local talent is fierce and deep (don't read that the wrong way). There's no shortage of beautiful people crafting and presenting beautiful things here — none whatsoever. My mind and heart are blown, regularly, just walking our streets and visiting our events.(Those were the days, right? When we did that?) The...
Detroit is 1 of the most casual cities we've visited, & in winter, it's also COLD. Here's what to wear for — a packing list, if you will — a weekend trip.
Mike and I took the boys home to Michigan recently, and ended up making a quick trip to Detroit. It was — shockingly — a really, really fun city to visit in the winter. (I hear Detroit is even better in the summer, but we had a total blast, cold or no.) If you'd like to see what we...
It's on. Wardrobe Reflections 2020😂. Here are 14 clothing pieces that have lasted through closet clean-outs & I would 100% buy again. Athleta, TUMI & more.
Mike and I are both originally from Michigan (he's from Grand Rapids, I'm from the U.P.), but it had been years since we visited Detroit. So when we found ourselves in that part of the state for Thanksgiving, we decided to make a quick trip of it. Detroit has been going through an economic revitalization for years now,...
A long weekend at the beach is the just right Rx for a summer refresh. I brought a li'l capsule wardrobe too, so here's my packing list for the shore.
My mom was visiting Philly over Memorial Day Weekend, so we ended up taking her to the shore for a few nights. Since we were short on time, we booked a room at the ICONA Hotel instead of renting a beach house. It turned out to be a perfect little weekend getaway, especially for anyone who can't commit to...
Go to Alta, everyone said. You'll love Alta. And...I suspect they're right. But Pax had recently taken to snowboarding and was currently a solid obsession level 11 (on a 10-point scale) and Alta doesn't allow snowboarders. Which, for our parent, ski-team-crowd, isn't usually a problem. But Pax, as many of you well know, is almost always my problem child...
The Rittenhouse Hotel was the perfect place for the team to stay in Philadelphia for our togetherness visit. The bar at Lacroix + the rooms = just right.
A couple of weeks ago, the TME team flew out to Philadelphia for some photoshoots and fun.  Well...not the entire team. Cam and Tiarra couldn't make it (sob!!) but the rest of the gang was here. It's strange to think that many of the team members have never met in real life.  We get on our zoom calls each...
Art Deco hotels on Collins Avenue & shopping on Lincoln Road — a day trip to South Beach in Miami wouldn't be complete without 'em. See how we do.
We recently took a little hiatus from the Left Coast and hopped over (and by hopped I mean traveled all day) to visit my parents in Southwest Florida. They winter in Naples these days, and sometimes we get to benefit...and it's always warm there. Yay! We've been a few times over the years now, so this time, Pinky and...
We had a super-fun vacation at Boyne Highlands resort in Michigan. Skiing, S'mores-making, swimming & dining — perfect for family-friendly bonding. Go!
Over the Christmas holidays, Mike and I — between visiting family in Michigan — surprised the boys with a few days of skiing at Boyne Highlands, located near the top of the mitten in what we call Northern Michigan. (Not the Upper Peninsula, mind you. Still the mitten.) Given that it was December and the midwest and #climatechange...it rained...
One thing I've learned, while living on the East Coast, is that most of these people have no idea where I'm from. I get glazed eyes, hesitant head nods, and — from the geography buffs — "isn't that Canada?" Um. No. I'm from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, a piece of land that is sandwiched between Lake Superior and the...
Graphic novels are insanely integral to our kids' love of reading. We got so many v. cool recs from comic book store Vault of Midnight, we had to share.
We spent the first part of our Christmas holiday in Grand Rapids, Michigan, visiting Mike's family. Because Christmas fell on a Tuesday this year, we were there in time to do our last-minute gift scramble in Grand Rapids. While wandering around downtown (which just keeps getting better and better), we discovered the coolest freaking comic book store, Vault of...
