NYC, The Third Day

O14A5595

The weather spoiled us on our third day in New York City. 70’s and sunny throughout the entire day. I had spent the night prior working on a client project until pretty late so we woke up super rushed and off to my blowout appointment at DreamDry in Manhattan. I love DreamDry over DryBar for a few reasons and one of them is the fact that they just have a lot more styles to offer! I got the “polished Stevie” and I’m not exaggerating when I say it lasted up to 3 days. Those waves just wouldn’t quit!

NYC, The Second Day

O14A5573

Our second day in New York City was…drenched. It rained all day and the wind was quite impressive. Read: my hair instantly turned into a nest of frizz. We had a few meetings in Little Italy and so we ducked into Oro Bakery & Bar for some warm drinks while the guys drooled over their pretzel bagels (yes, I was jealous). This pretzel bagel really got into their head and for the remainder of the trip they would duck into bakeries across the city seeking something similar. No luck.

Nashville for Death to Stock

Last weekend, Adam and I spent a few days down in Nashville for our Death to the Stock Photo roadtrip! I had been begging Adam to go back to Nashville (I had been there three times before) and I finally got him to understand just why I love it so much. I’ve decided to break down our future travels in quick-to-read format. So here we go:

Let’s Get Coffee. I Mean…Wine.

O14A4450

We made it to Friday! Instead of my usual “Let’s Get Coffee” post, I thought I’d switch it up and grab a glass of wine with you! I’ve done this a few times and it’s like a virtual date and I get to know more about you all. Here’s how we do it! You answer any of the following questions in the comment section. Mine are down at the very bottom!

  1. What’s your biggest fear?
  2. What song is stuck or playing in your head RIGHT now?
  3. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
  4. If you’re at a coffeeshop – what do you order? 
  5. What’s your middle name?

Here are my answers!

My biggest fear is that I’ll be arrested and found guilty of something I didn’t do.

TURN DOWN FOR WHAT?!

Introvert. Big time. I’m working on a secret introvert project right now so if you want to chat or could answer a few questions, email me!

Usually I order just a black coffee but if I don’t want to sit and sip for awhile I’ll order a double macchiato (but not like Starbucks…like the real thing. Espresso and foam)

My middle name is Rose!

Looking forward to hearing from YOU! Also read the last two in this series here and here

A Day in Indianapolis

Most of the blogs that I follow are based on either coast (mainly NYC or LA) and while I tend to drool over their photos, I will always be a midwest girl. I grew up in Illinois, went to college in Indiana and now I live in Ohio. Last weekend we spent 24 hours in Indianapolis (specifically in Fountain Square) and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. I found myself distracted by all the typography, signage and the little details. Plus, New Day Meadery makes my favorite mead. I had a glass of their strawberry rhubarb alongside a plate of brie, honey and prosciutto. Quite divine.

What Do Your Friends Do?

Yesterday Adam and I were able to spend a solid two hours with our friends Josh and Megan over coffee & tea and it was good for the soul. I have known Megan since we were fourteen years old and both had an interest in art. We stayed close in college while both majoring in the arts. We painted, designed, sculpted + more.

Fast forward nine years and here we were: married, owning businesses, owning homes and yet still creating. I realized on our way back to Columbus that many of my close friends throughout my life haven’t been artists or designers. Besides Megan and my friend Kellyn, it has always been a bit scarce. I miss watching talented people create right in front of me. Less tech, more hands-on.

What do your friends do? Do you all have similar occupations or hobbies? Do you think that’s important or do you think as we get older those things don’t matter quite as much?
