Our Favorite Travel Companion + a Giveaway!

Once the initial day-to-day planning of our Route 66 trip was set in place, we assumed the hard part was over – that is, until we spent a good handful of weeks going over the logistics of packing. We’d be gone for 2 weeks, we’d be flying home (and no one hates checking a bag more than these two!), and we knew we’d needKEEP READING >

Driving Route 66: III of III

We’re sharing our 2,500+ mile road trip down Route 66 from Chicago to LA. See Part I and Part II! Using Flagstaff as home base for another night (and after chowing down on the most delicious pizza and gelato from Pizzicletta), we detoured from Route 66 to see the Grand Canyon – just a hop, skip and a jump away! – and from there,KEEP READING >

Get Your Kicks + A Small Pause

We had a heavy plate this summer. One Tail. The garage. The kitchen! We’ve been on the go-go-go, and we were unkind to ourselves when it came to relaxation. It wasn’t until last week that we remembered, oh yeah, our vacation is around the corner!, a vacation we began planning in February. Our long time blog friends and readers knowKEEP READING >

Kitchen! Done!

Monday night, Scott and I shared a bottle of wine that we’d been saving for 8 months. It was a gift from our friends (thanks, Joe and Kara!), given to us last December as we embarked on our kitchen journey. They told us it was one of their favorites (La Crema Pinot Noir, if you’re curious), and they asked us to enjoy it when we had aKEEP READING >
