Sophie is the sweetest, most tender hearted dog. Best snuggles to wake up to. #rottiesofinstagram #rottiekins #sophersnuggles

Got to hang out with several incredible ladies (and one wee baby boy) today, Payton being the wee-est lady. The resilience and tenderness of women and mamas never ceases to amaze me. 5.22.17 #girlfrans

If I had time to write an ode to my cast iron I would. For now I shall just thank it for never failing me. Pseudo crustless mexican quiche thingamabob for breakfast this am. #fortheloveoffood #eatrealfoodathome

Oxford is enchanting in every way. Buildings that are several hundred years old, markets, antique shops, book stores, idealic coffee shops, and perfectly dressed students off to change the world.

Hiked up to Andechs Kloister today for a view (and a brew). #wanderngehen #deutschland #einmaßbierbitte #keinmehrbierbitte!!!

We went for a wander in the woods... #wanderngehen #wandernindiewald #bae

Truthfully, in real life I'm not a big drinker and definitely not a beer drinker all that much (just give me the food and I'll be soooo happy). That being said, there are always exceptions. #hofbräuhaus #münchen #deutschland #travelbug #jusyinsayshashtagYOLO

Some real life: we travel cheap. Like, beg friends for their couches and sleep in hostel dorms cheap. Tonight this means it's me and 5 dudes in this 6 bed dorm. One is obviously my husband but I don't even get to snuggle him so womp womp. This place is going to smell extra funk in the morning, especially after the remaining 2 guys come home from their night of drinking and crawl straight into bed in their clothes like they did last night. But I tell you what, we will remember the stinky hostel nights better than any comfy hotel bed - and that is indeed our aim and prerogative.

Sipping an Irish Coffee and watching this gorgeous little waif of a lady suck down a cigarette faster than I could chug a glass of water on a hot summer's day. It will be a bitter sweet goodbye to Ireland tomorrow but we plan on staying up too late and getting our Irish food and music fix in one last time. That and we know that one day we shall return.
