US Road Trip: Oregon // CEO In Progress

US Road Trip Part 1: Oregon

This is a pretty adventurous trip, so I figured I would start breaking this journey up into a few parts so the post about it isn’t a novel. To start though, a quick recap of how we ended up on a plane headed to Portland in the middle of November. My husband is a huge […]

Leland Anniversary Weekend Getaway

This fall has been insane to put it nicely. We finished a huge project we’ve had going on for a year plus, took our first trip out to Arizona, spent a week in Colorado, went on some work trips, and finally just got back celebrating our 1st anniversary to Leland where we got married. I’m […]

Arizona Favorite Photos: Grand Canyon // CEO in Progress

Arizona Favorite Pictures & Itinerary

I still can’t believe how in love we were with Arizona. It was such a stunning state and we were surprised every time we turned the corner to see mountains and weird little cacti. We had 5 days to explore and we definitely used that time wisely. We took the scenic route across the state […]

Milford Memories Preview: Tips and Favorites Along the Festival

Growing up in Milford, Milford Memories was basically a holiday for us kids. This big arts & crafts street fair meant lots of game, elephant ears, and getting a chance to roam the streets of the village. Now, it means lots of great sidewalk sales, craft beer tents as far as the eye can see, […]

My Favorite Metro Detroit Hiking Trails

This time of year is my favorite time to hit the trails. Once the weather starts to not get crazy hot and people start to clear out, that’s the best time to explore. Plus once fall hits, the colors start to change, and when you’re done you can get cider and donuts. Win, win. Even […]

Wanderlust: How I Organize Travel Ideas & Recommendations

I was just looking through Pinterest and planning 100 different vacations (typical!) and thought that how I keep all these ideas organized might be a helpful thing to share. I hate it when you get a great recommendation of somewhere to go to, but once you’re at the location you forget what it was. People […]

Kayak Camping on the Huron: My Beginner’s Tips & Packing List

This 4th of July we wanted to just relax and stay at home. We love going up north and hanging with friends or watching the fireworks at my parent’s cabin, but the dealing with traffic did not seem like a good way to spend our time off. Plus this summer is so packed with long […]

Summertime in Boston: My Travel Must-Do’s

I love writing about our adventures after the fact. Every time I do I get to relive all of the fun and remember my favorite spots and things we did. This latest adventure took us to Boston, and it was the first time traveling longer distance with our favorite couple to visit a friend from […]

6 Things You Must Do in Alpena // CEO in Progress

6 Things You Must Do in Alpena

Since my parents have bought a cabin near Alpena a few years ago, we’ve been going up regularly in the summers. At first (and still), we end up spending most of our time around the house playing golf, tennis, going kayaking, taking long walks, and being in the sun as much as possible. It’s great […]

Boston Packing List // CEO in Progress

Boston Packing List for Summer

We’re headed to Boston so soon! I can’t believe this trip is already here, it’s something that we started planning last fall (apple picking day to be exact) and now that it’s here I can’t wait and I’ve already started packing! Our last big vacation was Jamaica for our honeymoon in the end of October, […]
