Los Angeles: Home of Hollywood, City of Stars, La La Land. L.A. is a city I fall more in love with every time I visit. Admittedly, it helps that several dear friends provide free room and board in a rather expensive city, but every time I start packing my bags to head back home, I [...]

A Classy Afternoon in Columbia, MO

After a long, overwhelming three weeks, I needed a break, and Labor Day weekend has done just that for me.  On Friday night, Cate, Claire and Molly invited me last-minute to grab brunch with them on Saturday in downtown Columbia, Missouri.  Brunch?  Friends?  Umm, yes please.  COMO may not be the busiest and most bustling [...]

A Classy Afternoon in St. Louis

There’s something to say for trips to the amusement park and greasy corn dogs, but sometimes you gotta travel in style and class.  Riley and I began the day in St. Louis with only one thing set in stone, and we spontaneously chose the rest of the schedule throughout the day.  STL may be known [...]
