Popping in from Alaska – I hope each and everyone of you enjoyed the long weekend! Eric and I have been enjoying our babymoon up in Alaska. The beauty that you find around every single corner is breathtaking. It’s amazing what a little time surrounded by nature can do for your soul. The tranquility of being on the water has made it extra special.
I’m excited for the next few adventures that are ahead. I can’t wait to share my travel tales when I get back!
Enjoy this short week and be sure to pop by for a handful of fun posts.

It was almost 20 years ago that I took my very first trip to Alaska. I remember the stunning glaciers, sea otters and whales. When Eric and I sat down to plan our babymoon we wanted to go someplace adventurous, beautiful and unexpected. I’d say this isn’t your typical babymoon. Plus, it has been on Eric’s bucket list for quite some time. With that being said, we are combining luxury with adventure by going on a cruise. I can’t wait for our boat – the Celebrity Solstice to take us from one port to the next where we’ll be disembarking to different excursions(including hiking on glaciers!!!).
When packing for Alaska I knew I’d have to prepare for any kind of weather – sun, rain, and ice cold temperatures when hiking. A few readers reached out about what I was bringing because they are planning trips to Alaska as well – looks like it’s a popular destination! That’s why I wanted to share my packing list with all of you. The most important essential – a super warm Woolrich jacket that I have a feeling I’ll be living in the entire trip.
After an incredibly productive week, today Eric and I are setting sail for our last getaway before baby Flemming arrives. We’re traveling up to Seattle to embark on a week-long cruise to Alaska. We cannot wait for the adventure that awaits! While this isn’t your typical babymoon, we wanted to go somewhere that was adventurous, but still relaxing. I can’t wait for our glacier helicopter ride and dogsledding. You can follow along on instagram for updates but I promise I’ll be sharing every detail when I return. And don’t worry, I have a whole line of amazing posts for next week!
In the meantime, pop over to these sites for some fabulous reads this weekend.
With a new season beginning, there isn’t a better way to update your home than with a couple of new throw pillows! Whenever I’m in the mood to change things up around our apartment or if a client wants a little something new, I always begin with the pillows. It’s the easiest and most cost effective purchase.
I’ve sourced from some of my go-to sites for clients to bring you my top six pillows I would bring into your home this season. Hope these make it into some of your homes.
