Introducing SugarSky image

It’s an amazing thing when you network and meet people (and brands) that really speak to you. Skyler, founder/owner of SugarSky, is one of those positive, empowering women I connected instantly with last month and I’m thrilled to introduce.

Friends Who Travel Together image

When it comes to traveling, there are lots of different options on where to go + WHO to go with. Do you venture out solo, go with family, book a tour and/or explore with a friend? Up until this year I had always gone solo or with family. In June that changed when Holly (a friend + roommate) and I decided to stop talking about Europe and make the trip a reality. As the Thanksgiving week starts, it’s a good time to think about everything you are grateful for. Exploring near or far, from Washington, D.C. to Europe, one of the many things I’m grateful for is having a true friend + travel partner like Holly and the many travel adventures this ...

Social change… in the dark Do you know someone who is blind? Have you ever thought about what it’d really be like?

The Blind Cafe is a Colorado-based organization with pop-up locations in five cities across the United States (Austin, Boulder, Portland, San Francisco and Seattle). We create inspiring and impactful positive social change experiences in the pitch dark for corporate, college, non-profit fundraisers and the public!

Super Blood Moon image

Last night, September 27th, the Sun + Earth + Moon lined up in a row to put on a magical show. People all over the world looked up to watch the lunar eclipse. Super Moon + Blood Moon + Lunar Eclipse Why was it special? It was a special one for at least two reasons. First, it was a super moon + blood moon. It happened to be at perigee, the spot in its orbit that brings it closest to the Earth. Some call the totally eclipsed moon a “blood moon” for the red-orange color, which happens once it’s completely in the Earth’s shadow. Second, this lunar eclipse was the last in a series of four in two years. It can happen a couple ...
