Our Surprise Trip to Chicago (It only took me 7 months to post!)

     ^ Melissa, one of my bestest friends in the whole world, surprised John and I and took us to Chicago last June as an early wedding present. Her boyfriend, Brandon, was there for work and she knew we've been wanting to capture the Chicago skyline for Ink the Print! She revealed the surprise via cake because that's her thing and she's excellent at it. Day 1: ^ This was our view in the morning. We had arrived the evening before and had drinks on the rooftop and a late dinner at Fado (We love the Fado in Philly so of course...

Road Trip to Detroit

Road Trip to Detroit

My father-in-law likes to rebuild antique tractors in his spare time and he recently put a bid on some tractor parts through Ebay. He won the bid, but now that meant he had to drive all the way to Michigan to pick them up... John and I laughed and laughhhhed. And then suddenly we weren't laughing anymore because we were going with him! I was promised breakfast with my dad, who is in Detroit this month for business, and city skylines on the journey home, which means more designs for Ink the Print! We left two Saturdays ago at 2:30 pm and...

Our Brief Business Trip to Houston

As I mentioned here, John and I planned a trip to Houston to capture the skyline and visit the incredible store that carries our work, Space Montrose! Our trip was at the very end of July and we were only there for two days... Day 1: ^ Views from our hotel room! After we took a cab from the airport to our hotel, got change for the cab from a billionaire lawyer named Joe Jamail (I had to google him...he's the wealthiest practicing attorney in America!), and checked into our room, we gathered our suitcase full of stone coasters and set out...

A Lovely April Friday in Philly

A Lovely April Friday in Philly

Last Friday we took the train into Philly to celebrate my wonderful sister-in-law's birthday. It was supposed to be the typical "April Showers", but the rain held out and it was beautiful! We went to this Irish Pub in Center City called Fado. Ever been? Well you need to go! It's seriously high quality pub food, but surprisingly inexpensive. And you just can't beat the atmosphere. I can vouch for their stuffed cheese puffs, Harp battered fish tacos, pulled lamb french dip sandwich, fish & chips, and chicken boxty quesadilla (it's made from potatoes instead of tortilla). I didn't eat all of that...

Florida Vacation Photos

We spent six days in a beautiful home on the Florida Beach. We searched the sand for shark teeth, drank our morning coffee while staring out at the ocean, and fell asleep to the sound of the waves at night. There was also lots of laughter, sarcasm, and tequila. It was quite wonderful. ^ Nature's art. Incredible. We went to the Jacksonville Zoo (the tigers were my favorite) and hit up all the local bars & restaurants on Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach. ^ If I were a gnome, this would be my home. We had a LOT of fun. I promise....
