#DutchDuo Flies to DC


Kara and I visited Katie in Washington, D.C. last weekend. We had an amazing time! The vacation’s goal was to spend quality time together, and we definitely nailed it.

Our trip officially began when Kara and I arrived at our airport. We had pizza for lunch and we each bought a book to read during our flight.

Kara and I each bought books that were perfect for us! I’m loving #GIRLBOSS so far and Kara said Yes Please is great, too!

We had a good laugh when the woman who sold us our books asked us, “Why are you buying books? Aren’t you going to talk to each other?” We laughed and said, “We’re gonna be spending a LOT of time together over the next few days.”


Hello, Sunshine


I just got back from a business trip to San Diego. I am lucky/fortunate/blessed enough to admit that this is my second business trip to San Diego. I want to “legit vacation” in this city someday, as I have become quite infatuated yet have not seen a lot of what SoCal has to offer.

What I have seen of this city I love:
SUNSHINE, fantastic stores, high fashion, delicious food, the glistening ocean and an absolutely gorgeous clear blue sky.

Added bonus of this state is a dry heat, AKA my hair's best cooperation.

Until next time, San Deigo. XOXO.



I took a trip to Florida with some of my favorite girls. We took lots of pictures (and walks along the beach!), went shopping, ate delicious food, chatted, laughed, got a little too close to a few chameleons, etc etc. A great time was had by all!

Fresh From Ecuador!


I’m giving thanks for all my friends who have safely arrived home from their semesters abroad, specifically in Kenya and Ecuador. I’m especially thankful to have Becky back. She does a whole lot for this campus and I was thrilled to see her the other night.


Welcome back, B! Couldn’t be more excited to have you around again.
