The Block – Dog Friendly Patio – St. Louis Park, Minnesota

For Valentine's Day, we brought our favorite Valentine (our rescue dog, Allen) to The Block in St. Louis Park to check out their dog-friendly patio. We were so impressed! They have thought of everything to make your dining experience with your pup amazing. Allen has been to restaurant patios but has always been the only ...

Broken Arrow Trail – Hiking – Sedona

Broken Arrow is a new trail for us this year. We were hesitant to hike here because the trail runs parallel to the jeep path and we thought it would be disruptive. The jeeps didn't bother us at all and it was fun to watch them cruising over the red rocks. The hiking distance for ...

Goodbye My Girl – This One Is For You

When the new year started, I had big plans to write and all my blog posts planned for the month of January but then life happened. We lost our sweet girl, Utah. She was only 3 years old, almost 4 (her birthday would have been in February). We found out that she had chronic kidney ...

Montezuma Well – National Park Service

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., the National Park Service celebrates his birthday by offering the first of five in 2020 no-fee days at National Parks and Monuments.

One Blanket, Two Hearts

The human connection.  Traveling always offers the most interesting conversations and connections with strangers. Each encounter teaches us something and leaves an imprint.

Glenwood Springs – Colorado

If you’re going to get stuck on a road trip, Glenwood Springs, Colorado is the place. Vail Pass (10,666' mountain pass over the Rocky Mountains) was closed due to a snowstorm so we enjoyed our extra day! We were here in April and this has become one of our favorite Colorado towns. There’s so much ...
