The Silver Lining (if there is one) to destroying my laptop and subsequently losing photos taken during the 2017 year, is that iPhones can take great photos too. (I’ve quite honestly been sulking.)

Last August, in the dead of summer, I took a weekend getaway to Charleston, South Carolina. As a proud “born and raised” Californian, this was one of my most authentic southern experiences to date. The hospitality was unrivaled. Continue reading “Weekend Getaway in Charleston, SC”
When I need a vacation but cannot get away, I find myself reminiscing on photos from the Greek Isles, from a trip I took in summer of 2014. (It’s time for another one).
I spent one day in Corfu Town, the city of motor scooters, sapphire-colored waters, and clotheslines dropped with brightly colored towels. Continue reading “Corfu Town, Greece”
